Deus Ex: Human Revolution to support 3D, DirectX 11 and more


Square Enix has revealed that the PC version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution will feature full DirectX 11 support and a number of other PC-specific features, PC Gamer reports.

The Nixxes Software-developed version of the upcoming franchise "reboot" will work with AMD's Eyefinity, allowing up to five monitors to be used during gameplay.

Five. Monitors.

Users with compatible screens will also be able to play Deus Ex: Human Revolution in 3D. Jurjen Katsman, head of Nixxes, told PC Gamer that in DX11 mode the game will feature tessellation. "This was one of the first features we started making use of with DX11. We mainly used it to improve character silhouettes, but also used it for some other objects in the world," he added.

According to the report, Nixxes has significantly rewritten the game engine to take advantage of the extra processing power offered on PC. Eidos claims that a dual core setup, for example, can offer "up to a 70% increase" in speeds.

Eidos Montreal director of technology, Julien Bouvrais says that the addition of DX11 and AMD-specific features were items they wanted to make sure added something to the game and not simply "tacked on without real purpose."

A lot of details from the PC version have been revealed this week, including the game's specs and first PC-specific screenshots. Deus Ex: Human Revolution launches on the PC from Nixxes Software and on the Xbox 360 and PS3 from Eidos Montreal on August 23.
