Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut

Original PC version can be upgraded for as little as $5.

Details for the PC version of 'Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut' have been slight thus far, but Square Enix has now shared some information on the features and pricing structure for the Steam version.

From Square Enix, "The Director’s Cut is pretty much the complete package, then. It contains the full Human Revolution game, plus all DLC packs (the Missing Link, the Explosive Mission Pack, and the Tactical Enhancement Pack) – along with some improvements to the boss fights… which you’ll probably find really useful.

"Not only that, but there’s a New Game + feature, so you can replay through the action with all your previously-earned upgrades intact (which, trust me, is a LOT of fun), there are developer commentaries (English-only) plus the original Making-of video."

Basically, there are three pricing options. As currently priced on Steam, the Director's Cut can be had for a reasonable $20. Those who already own the old Steam version, however, have a cheaper set of upgrade options. "We wanted to share some news about the PC release, because there are some cool upgrade options if you bought the original on PC.

"Here’s the basic idea – you can buy the game outright, or you can… augment… whichever version you already have.

"So – to the upgrades. Here are the deals:
New purchase (if you don’t already have the game): £12.99/€19.99/$19.99
Own the basic game (with no DLC): £6.99/€7.99/$9.99
Own the game and Missing Link DLC: £3.49/€3.99/$4.99"

One aspect glossed over for the PC version is second screen support, which looks to be relegated to only the console versions.
