Deus Ex Human Revolution Missing Link Trailer

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.

    This makes me think that perhaps the developer might have left out this particular section, just to make some extra money by coming out with it shortly after the game comes out.

      That is how a lot of games are now you pay full price for 3/4th of the game then they release DLC. For example Gears of War 3 DLC comes out the day the game is released. Then having to pay 30 for a 30$ discount for 4 DLC the day it comes out. Instead of making it just 1. IMO they are testing there fans but just like every other game we will keep paying them to play it. If the players stood up against BS like that maybe it be easier to pay 60$ for a game. Im not 100% all for DLC because its just a way to get more money. But at the same time there are some DLC worth 10$s not a lot though.

        Way I see it we’re not paying developers by the hour, if they choose to leave a section out because it’ll work better as dlc or to just extend the period of interest longer then they have every right to.

    While I will definitely be playing this DLC, I hate how stuff like this crams too much into the story. Too often you see games add DLC, comics or books and the events in those stories are forced into the events of the game. Like Halo 2 and 3 for example…Master Chief jumps out of a ship at the end of Halo 2 headed for Earth and at the beginning of Halo 3 he lands on Earth. Instead of that being it, they release a comic explaining the events that happened in between the end of 2 and the start of 3.

    This is the exact same thing. Jensen goes in a pod that travels for three days and when he arrives he gets out of the pod. But of course they have to cram in some story into that that doesn’t belong there.

    this doesn’t really fit into the story that well imo, b/c when jesen does come back in contact with prichard, he never states anything about going though hell to get where he does. i feel as if they cut this segment out of the game and covered it up in a stupid manner b/c a/ they wanted to extend the life of the game or b/ didn’t have time to properly implement this section in (just like the alleged monreal city HUB which i’m willing to bet will come out as DLC sometime in the future).

    i probably wont get this b/c if i trade the game in now i can get dead island for $10 and that’s a game that doesn’t end when you finish the last mission.
