Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut coming to PC

A director's cut version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is coming soon to PC, according to a new report by Gamespot. Although it had previously been announced as a Nintendo Wii U release, the new multi-platform edition will integrate previously released DLC as well as offer updated boss fights, altered combat, and "enhanced visuals," according to the title's official website.

This is good news for anyone who liked the original (we did) and at the same time felt there were some dissonant areas that could be improved upon. A director's cut, be it a film or video game, can often see itself reinvented in a new version (see Ridley Scott's Blade Runner). The boss fights are definitely one aspect of the original game that I would love to see re-imagined. Per Gamespot, it's not obvious from today's announcement whether or not the new edition will be available as DLC for people who already own Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

The director's cut is set to include support for a variety of touch devices for consoles, but it's not clear yet how this intriguing functionality will be implemented for PC.
