Deus Ex: Human Revolution hasn’t been out for all that long and some substantial DLC is already on its way. The new content centers around a three-day period of time during the main game where protagonist Adam Jensen seemingly disappears. What happened to him? What went on? Well, ‘The Missing Link’ will allow players to discover exactly that.
One of the most important things to note regarding ‘The Missing Link’ is that will enable players to re-spec Jensen, at least once. Certainly, this news will come as a major relief to those who found the campaign particularly challenging, especially if their Jensen was lacking some combat capabilities. But we’re not here to talk about the story of the DLC.
New screenshots and a trailer have been released for the upcoming expansion, adding to the mystery of Jensen’s missing hours. Check out the first viral images and details and get up to speed if you haven’t already, and if you’re still on the fence about the game in general, read our review and see why you might want to reconsider.
The new releases definitely show that Adam is not at his best. He’s bloodied, beaten, interrogated, and just not having a great day. Players will initially have to rely on the more subtle approach to gameplay, as none of your augmentations will be made available to you off the bat. There are a few more characters Jensen will come across and potentially be able to aid or exploit to facilitate his own mission.
First, the teaser trailer:
So much intrigue. Those who beat the game will know just how Jensen got into this particular situation, and perhaps more importantly, how he gets out. It’s unknown whether or not the DLC will be playable as a side-mission or if it will be included into the main story after purchase. Now that you have an idea of what might be going on during ‘The Missing Link’, you can peruse the below screenshots and see some of the things Jensen will be up against:
Jensen’s operating area of a cargo ship might not enable him to be as sneaky as usual, without so many conveniently placed vents. A more old school approach of hiding behind walls and crouching will likely be the better method. Takedowns should still be applicable, as will be scavenging for weapons.
Will you be picking up ‘The Missing Link’ when it comes out?
Deus Ex: Human Revolution ‘The Missing Link’ will be releasing in October 2011 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and OnLive.
