Deus Ex: Human Revolution is looking more and more enticing as news drips in. On release it will support DirectX 11, 3D and Eyefinity, and now comes word that Human Revolution will be distributed digitally through Steam.
If you were worried that Eidos-Montreal might be going the ‘Securom’ route, or using some other invasive DRM, you’ll be pleased to hear the company will be embracing Steamworks to distribute their upcoming third instalment in the Deus Ex series. Anyone who pre-purcheses the game via Steam will get a discount on both the standard edition and Augmented edition of the game.
Being on Steam you can expect all the usual trimmings; auto-update, achievements, Steam Cloud etc. The “Augmented” edition will also include (for a little extra coin) a digital 40-page art book, a “making of” special, trailers, animated storyboard of the CGI trailer, motion graphic novel, soundtrack, and a free download of the Deus Ex Game of the Year Edition.
Although Eidos-Montreal has stated the game is available for pre-order on Steam, a quick glance at the Steam product page appears to suggest otherwise. I’m sure it will be sorted out later on today or early sometime tomorrow.
