Some downloadable content are sort of tacked-on extras that aren't worth the cost of admission.
But the first batch of DLC for Deus Ex: Human Revolution should be well worth your time and money. Eidos marketing boss David Bedard has issued some new details about The Missing Link, which will augment this stellar sci-fi experience. …yeah, we try to use "augment" or some variation on the word in every Deus Ex -related article.
Firstly, it will be a big file (1.5GB in size) and secondly, that big download will grant you around 5 more hours of gameplay. Thirdly, it seems the The Missing Link won't be included in the game's primary narrative, and there won't be an option to reset your augmentations. That was a point of confusion when we first heard about this DLC. Said Bedard:
"The Missing Link will not appear in the main game narrative, and your augmentation set in The Missing Link will not carry over to the main game after you’ve completed it. While gameplay-wise The Missing Link is not tied back into the main game, narratively you will find out things that will shed some much needed light on some of the… shadier sections of the Human Revolution world."
By the way, I finished the game over the weekend and the ending was fantastic. For those who are familiar, I picked the "middle" option when facing the final console. 🙂
