Eidos Really Want You To Buy Deus Ex: Human Revolution On Steam

By Ishaan . May 6, 2011 . 4:03pm

Like Dungeon Siege  III, when Deus Ex: Human Revolution releases on Steam, you’ll get something nice for pre-purchasing the game before it releases in August.


Steam gamers, too, will be able to grab both the regular ($44.99) or Augmented Edition ($53.99) of Human Revolution, which comes with a whole bunch of bonuses. If you pre- purchase, you’ll get a discount on whichever version you bought, although Eidos haven’t specified just how much of a discount that will be.


The PC version of Human Revolution is being developed by Nixxes, and it has a user interface that’s been customized for the mouse and keyboard. Eidos say there’s a different weapon selection bar in the PC version, and a drag & drop interface to bind items in your inventory to hotkeys on the keyboard. In some cases, like the hacking mini-games, control schemes were redone entirely to fit the PC. You’ll also be able to customize your controls entirely.


On PCs, Eidos Montreal are collaborating with AMD to support playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution on 3-5 monitors and in 3D, using AMD Eyefinity and AMDHD3D technology on certain AMD video cards. There’s also support for DirectX 11 enhancements, such as improved depth-of-field, morphological anti-aliasing, real-time tessellation and high-quality shadow filtering.

    I can’t imagine playing Deus Ex with a joypad. Anyone tried the PS2 version?

    But then, I guess this new one will be more streamlined… ah well. A demo would be much appreciated, to see if it works well.

        ahaha we might share the same ideals and p
        in gaming :D

  • Surprise the PC version is optimized for DirectX 11 unlike Crysis 2 where I think Crytek is still working on the DirectX 11 update.

    What perfect timing! Our bad global economy wants Square Enix to buy me the latest and greatest video card ^__^
