Those of you who enjoy punching through three feet of solid granite like it were an unwanted trifle, before strangling an unsuspecting guard on the other side, are in luck. PC gamers will be able to upgrade their digital copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution to the new Director’s Cut from just £3.49, thanks to publisher Square Enix announcing a cheap upgrade plan.

Originally announced as a Wii U exclusive way back when, the Director’s Cut version of the game comes packing a whole host of game improvements, DLC and other assorted tidbits, making this upgrade deal look like serious bang for your buck…

Owners of Deus Ex and Missing Link DLC can grab the Director's Cut for £3.49/$4.99. Players who own the game without the missing link DLC can buy it for £6.99/$9.99 and those who don't own the game can purchase the Director's Cut for £12.99/$19.99. The upgrade offer only applies to those who own the Steam version of the augmentation-based stealth game.

Square Enix’s Phil Elliot said in a blog posting that it’s “Pretty straightforward, and that means that if you did invest in Human Revolution in the past, we’re not trying to stitch you up with the Director’s Cut, m’kay?”

Deus Ex: Human Revolution was a fantastic game marred by a few minor faults when it released back in 2011, but Eidos Montreal has seen fit to iron out these quibbles to give you the best experience possible.

The Director’s Cut looks to be bringing significantly more to the table than the usual slapdash game of the year editions cropping up with alarming regularity; the reworked titled has been in development for 18 months.

The full game will include the Missing Link DLC, the Explosive Mission Pack, the Tactical Enhancement Pack as well as a New Game Plus mode that keeps all your unlocked augmentations intact, as well as an optional developer commentary, that sounds much like those handheld sets you get given while walking around museums, giving a bit more detail on how the game was created.

As well as this there have been numerous enhancements to the gameplay, in particular the boss fights, some of which placed a heavy emphasis on having combat-focus modifications to have any chance of beating. Now you can kill all of the bosses without firing a single bullet, harking back to the Deux Ex games of yore, where with enough persistence and deliberation you could ‘ghost’ your way through entire levels - Stick that in your pipe Sam Fisher.

Back in August 2011 we gave the game an impressive 9/10, so any improvements to the formula should help elevate the title to absolute classic status. 

Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut is set to launch on Steam on 22nd October in the US and three days later on the 25th in Europe.

Now the boss fights won't suck? Great, now I can progress past the first 12 hours if I'm playing non-lethal. I finished the game anyway, but those bosses were seriously terrible.

oh okay, lol, well to play and love deus ex HR u need a bit of patience, that's what stealth demands, and rewards you, i can't force you into completing it or ask u do it, you can't enjoy anything no matter how good unless n until u feel like doing it

Well, you don't absolutely have to be stealthy ;) But the game does reward you with more XP if you're as stealthy as possible, finding other routes into and through levels (other than the front door approach), and being non-lethal. Of course, you can just blast your way through and pull off some brutal cyber-enhanced melee takedowns. I forgot how much I missed all the takedowns in this game...

The third person transition from single person while in cover and take down

    Yeah, the 1st to 3rd person transition may be a little jarring at first, but you'll get used to it.  I mean, DX has always been a 1st person game, but I thought it was kind of cool to see Jensen's 3rd person model outside of cutscenes, especially for takedowns.  The original DX games had 3rd person cutscenes for JC and Alex (well, just dialogue), but DX:HR has 3rd person cinematic cutscenes, and I consider the takedowns to be an extension of that.  The cover system is certainly something you have to adapt to, but I got used to it fairly quickly. It just gives you another look at Adam and reminds you how much of a badass he is ;)

Damn, I was hoping it would be free ;)
But I figured the price would be very low if they were going to sell it. Still, I already have The Missing Link DLC and both mission packs. The commentary might be interesting, and "new game plus" and the boss fight overhaul are certainly welcome additions. I've also read on another site that this cut has improved graphics and AI. Also has the 'making of' video (alreadyy have that, too, from the collector's edition). I'm still debating if I want to get this or not, but I probably will anyway the next time I play it. I guess it's cheapest if you already have the full game and Missing Link.

And besides the sound track, okay this is not "in game", but deus ex HR has one of the best cinematic trailer, wish if they had those stuffs in the game, but that's just me asking more and more.

One of the best cinematic trailers were for ODST in my opinion... But hey Deaus Ex 3 right up there at the top along with it... Also, don't forget Stick of Truth - best trailers of any game ever...

Absolutely agree about the soundtrack. I got it with the collector's edition and I still listen to it quite often. 'Icarus' was the track used in the trailer, but was still composed by Michael McCann. The themes used in 'Icarus' are noticeable in some of the tracks actually used in game. heh, thinking about all this, the game, the music..Looks like I'll be getting the director's cut after all ;) I was going to play a few other games I haven't started yet, but I think by next week, I'll be doing another playthrough of DX:HR!
