  • NEWS: EA has green lit the hype machine for Battlefield 4. An official teaser website has popped up, and though it does not reveal much, it promises more to come on 27 March.
  • NEWS: Eidos Montreal and Australia’s Straight Right have formally announced Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut for Wii U. The press release details a number of additions and changes to the core game built around providing the “definitive” experience. For starters, the Director’s Cut will include all DLC and bonus content bundled into the one package and integrated into mission structure. That means The Missing Link, a stand alone side story to the main game, will now be integrated into its logical position during the core narrative. The main game’s engine too has been update to include rendering enhancements included in The Missing Link. Wii U specific enhancements include Miiverse integration for taking notes, recording audio, and more, along with touch pad controls for terminals and networks, as well as a “scan” mode that uses the GamePad as a special visor. On the gameplay front, complaints of the original’s poor boss fights have been heard, and thus slightly redesigned to better accommodate the wider range of play styles, including the ability to take down all bosses without firing a shot from a weapon. The Director’s Cut will also include eight hours worth of developer commentary spread across the game, and a forty five minute “Making Of” documentary. The game is set to launch on Wii U later this year.
