Earlier this week, code-crackers broke the secrets of a teaser site Eidos has put up for Deus Ex: Human Revolution, finding what appeared to be clues for the game’s first DLC extension (above). Eidos now has officially confirmed it will arrive in October.

It’ll be called “The Missing Link”. According to a post yesterday on the official site, the story has Adam “mysteriously” disappearing for three days, so this sounds like it happens mid-story. Per the description:

After being tortured by Belltower agents and having his augmentations disabled, Adam Jensen must rely solely on his basic capabilities to escape from a freighter, destined for an unknown location. While fighting for his survival on the ship, he uncovers another layer to the conspiracy that he never would have suspected.

We’re told to expect “sprawling new environments”, “brand-new characters” and, oh yeah, “Rebuild Adam’s augmentation set from scratch”, so it sounds like an opportunity to re-spec if you’re unhappy with your choices so far.

A specific release date was not mentioned.

Coming in October [Deus Ex: Human Revolution]


  • My favourite game of the year so far… I really don’t know what to think about this.

    I really hope it’s decent DLC like we saw for Fallout, instead of some of the really lacking DLC i’ve seen.

  • I hate when DLC tries to tamper with the main mechanics of the game.

    ME2: This time, you’re without a squad! Why? Who cares!

    DEHR: This time, you’re without augmentations! Why? Who cares!

    • Well where else can they shoehorn the obligatory DLC in?

      This might at least explain how Adam was so conveniently able to get himself into and out of one of those pods…

        • Yeah, but why was there an empty pod in the container? And how come no one else could let themselves out at the other end like Adam could?

          • They were shipping out sooner than they wanted to (the bomb etc) hence there being an empty pod (possibly more) and the others would probably have been in chemically induced comas to stop them from waking up and trying to escape.

          • But why pack the pod in the shipping container before you put anyone in it? That’s what loading bays are for. And if they thought there was no one in said empty container, why load it on the boat at all?

            And why do I really care so much??? 🙂

  • Ugh. I hate DLC. Could imagine if a writer released a novel that was lacking the ending? “Don’t worry guys! You can buy more story for just another $5!”

    Bad enough that everything is either a bloody trilogy or longer these days, but now we’re getting cutting room scraps sold to us.

    • Whilst I though Deus Ex wrapped up the conspiracy properly – it didn’t answer a lot of questions to my satisfaction.


      i.e. what happened to all the people you meet, who was testing on Jensen as a baby, how did Megan know his blood was special, etc.

  • Finished this on the weekend and all im going to say is that all the endings felt …. anti-climatic, especially since i made such an effort to save certain people, kill others … then the end is just this …. (cant say not to spoil it)

  • I’d like to see some DLC relating to the Australian Civil War that kept popping up in the newspapers and such. Screw this crap, I wanna see Australians throwing kangaroos at each other.

  • I wan’t DLC chronicling the adventures of the mysterious hacker and soon to be Picus TV character sensation, ‘nucl3arsnake’.

    If you don’t know what I’m talking about, hack Pritchard’s computer for lulz.
