Changes[edit | edit source]
Integrated DLC[edit | edit source]
All the DLC are now completely integrated into the base game:
- The Missing Link will automatically start after the player finishes Stowing Away, and after completion, the rest of the game will return. From the Explosive Mission Pack, the player will gain access to the mission You Scratch My Back, I'll Scratch Yours.
- Two DLC items (a Huntsman Silverback double barreled shotgun and a Longsword Whisperhead Sniper Rifle) will be scattered throughout Milwaukee Junction, found early in the game.
- The two other DLC items, the Remote-Detonated Device and the Automatic Unlocking Device can be found in various places throughout the game.
Altered Graphics[edit | edit source]
The yellow filter of the original version was removed.
Overhauled Boss Battles[edit | edit source]
Boss fights were changed to provide the player more options to deal with bosses, depending on how the player developed their character. Most notably, new options were added for hacking/stealth characters which enable players to hack turrets to help them against the bosses.
Gameplay Differences[edit | edit source]
On the two easier difficulties, Tell Me A Story and Give Me A Challenge, two energy cells will automatically regenerate instead of one. This makes the two difficulties easier overall. After completing the game, the player will have the option to start a "New Game +". This lets players carry over their augmentations to the new game. Weapons do not carry over.
"Making Of" Video[edit | edit source]
A roughly 45 minute "Making Of" video is included.
PC Porting Differences[edit | edit source]
Nixxes, the studio responsible for porting the original Deus Ex: Human Revolution to Windows did not port the Director's Cut. This difference causes the Director's Cut to have a larger file size and be laggy on some systems.
