Aside from an October release window, an exact date and price for the first big Deus Ex: Human Revolution downloadable content pack was unknown. With an ARG for fans wrapped up, Eidos Montreal has finally provided us with those details.
The Missing Link will be released on October 18 for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC in North America, where it’ll cost $ 14.99 (1,200 Microsoft Points). In Europe, it’ll be out on the same day for 360 and PC, but PS3 gamers will have to wait an extra day, until October 19. In Europe it will be priced at 1,200 points on 360, 11.25 Euros on PS3, and 10.99 Euros on PC. U.K. pricing is 1,200 points or 8.99 GBP on PC and PS3.
The ARG began in August, leading to the DLC’s existence being discovered in early September. Our own Thierry Nguyen has since gotten to go hands-on with it — you can read his impressions here. The most noteworthy thing to be aware of is Adam Jensen is aboard a boat full of bad guys with his Augmentations deactivated. That may force you to change your approach, at least initially, if you happened to be an aggressive player in the main game.
