Deus Ex 'The Missing Link' DLC interview with Antoine Thisdale

As mentioned in our preview that launched earlier today, developer Eidos Montreal is putting the finishing touches on the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution downloadable content 'The Missing Link.' Scheduled to launch sometime in October, the DLC will take place during a three-day span missing from the life of protagonist Adam Jensen during the main campaign of the game.

Edios Montreal game designer Antoine Thisdale visited the Shacknews office to discuss some of the changes made for 'The Missing Link,' the corporate culture at the Montreal studio, and more.

Deus Ex: The Missing Link DLC preview

Deus Ex: The Missing Link DLC preview

Late in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, protagonist Adam Jensen goes dark, leaving the player to wonder what happened to the gritty-voiced hero. Eidos Montreal's upcoming DLC for the game, The Missing Link, looks to fill in the blanks, as it takes place during that missing fragment of Jensen's life.

According to Eidos Montreal game designer Antoine Thisdale, The Missing Link will last for up to five hours. (Of course, the content's length is based on your play style and skill level.) My preview of the content showed off about half of what the full expansion is supposed to offer.

Eidos Montreal poised to double in size

Eidos Montreal poised to double in size

Fresh from the launch of the critical success of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, it appears that developer Eidos Montreal might be doubling in size. Publisher Square Enix is apparently making a push to greatly expand the Canadian studio, pending the approval of a £1.2M grant ($2M CAD), by local government officials. Though the deal has not yet been finalized, the funding would be used to help facilitate the rapid increase in head-count.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution DLC teased

On August 29, a special message was delivered to players via the Deus Ex: Human Revolution menu screen, directing them to visit the game's official website for updates. The message was accompanied by a mysterious alphanumeric string. The gaming community banded together, and a few days later, the code was cracked. Could this puzzle be a tease for upcoming downloadable content?

GameStop offering $50 coupons to Deus Ex: Human Revolution customers

GameStop offering $50 coupons to Deus Ex: Human Revolution customers

After pulling Deus Ex: Human Revolution off of their shelves, GameStop's drama is seemingly coming to an end today, with the company offering reparation to customers that purchased a copy of the game--only to find it had been gutted.

When publisher Square Enix offered a coupon for OnLive, a competitor of GameStop's own digital services, the retailer opened sealed copies of the game and removed the coupon from their inventory. Afterwards, they pulled the game entirely from store shelves. The very-public debacle comes to an end as customers are receiving apologetic e-mails.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution review

Deus Ex: Human Revolution review

In Deus Ex: Human Revolution, corporations seek to accelerate the natural evolution of the species with mechanical augmentations to help propel humanity into a new era.

When mortal wounds force augments on him, the game's central character, Adam Jensen, gets caught in the middle of a class warfare between natural and augmented humans, as well as the greed of corporations. Though he awakens more powerful than he has ever been, in the face of a greater conspiracy he is little more than a pawn.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution trailer explores social and hacking features

Deus Ex: Human Revolution trailer explores social and hacking features

The latest trailer for Deus Ex: Human Revolution to explore the game's "four pillars of gameplay" features two major elements: social interaction and engineering and the game's hacking mini-game.

As a large scale title, Deus Ex: Human Revolution relies on conversations to help players better understand their objectives and open new avenues to completing their tasks. In our recent preview, we dove into some of the character interaction and modification that the player will come face-to-face with when the game launches later this month, and came away craving more.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution PC adds FOV option

Deus Ex: Human Revolution PC adds FOV option

At a certain point, it became acceptable, perhaps even sensible, to be excited about Deus Ex: Human Revolution. A prequel to one of the greatest games ever made made by entirely different people sounds scary, certainly, but the more we see and play, the better it seems. The latest good news nugget is that, by popular demand, an adjustable field of view option has been added to its PC edition.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution wants 'Purity First'

Deus Ex: Human Revolution wants 'Purity First'

It's not every day we put a purely promotional "viral video" on the site. However, this is not just any ordinary viral video. Square Enix has created a live action promo for its upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and it does a great job of setting up the game's major conflict. How does society respond to the increasing demand of augmentations? And how does someone get addicted to augmentations? The answers, as you'll see, aren't very pretty.
