Deus Ex DLC On The Way

Eidos Montreal certainly know how to make an announcement. It all started on the 29th of August with a message appearing on the main menu containing a series of letters and numbers. The Deus Ex community was quick to spot this tease and went ahead on cracking the code.

After many hints from the developers on twitter and facebook, the community eventually found, displaying only an image of a desk with papers and research on it.

following this was even more digging, a login screen and a .WAV file in morse code. All of this was essentially bypassed when someone just had a look at's RSS feed, which revealed pretty much everything aside from a release date:

"The Deus Ex: Human Revolution conspiracy grows deeper in The Missing Link. During lead character Adam Jensen’s quest for the truth in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, he mysteriously vanishes for three days. Where was he? What did he find out? The Missing Link reveals it all.

"We are very excited for Deus Ex: Human Revolution fans to be able to complete Adam’s journey in the game with The Missing Link DLC," said David Anfossi, producer of Deus Ex: Human Revolution at Eidos-Montreal. "Gamers will be able to experience a vulnerable side of Adam like never before, which gives the overall game a whole new dimension. The Missing Link propels players into compelling gameplay, beginning with Adam being stripped of his use of augmentations, new, visually stunning environments and the continuation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s conspiracy rich story.”

After being tortured by Belltower agents and having his augmentations disabled, Adam Jensen must rely solely on his basic capabilities to escape from a freighter, destined for an unknown location. While fighting for his survival on the ship, he uncovers another layer to the conspiracy that he never would have suspected. As Adam, gamers will befriend new, mysterious allies and fight ruthless enemies to discover what was happening in the shadows during the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution!"

Was a nice attempt by Eidos Montreal to drum up some hype for some DLC. It certainly got me really interested in whatever might come out of it. It's a shame it all got revealed a little sooner than intended but it was fun to watch. It certainly wasn't as amazing as what Valve did with Portal 2, but it was a great try. Lets hope this DLC holds up.
