Total Game Immersion

You ARE Adam Jensen. The GamePad is Jensen’s Neural Hub, one of his implanted augmentations and possibly his most powerful tool.

The “in-game” menus are now toolkits; they feel like part of the game flow and one of Adam Jensen’s augmentations.

Tongs’s Rescue mission and the entire Missing Link chapter have been integrated seamlessly into the narrative flow of the Director’s Cut.

Original pre-order and other bonus weapons are now at Jensen’s disposal.

Original Game Mechanics utilizing the GamePad

Hacking is now at his best on the GamePad. Use the speed and precision of your fingers to hack on the GamePad while the world remains visible on your primary screen.

The “sniper scope” feature allows any weapon with a scope to use both the GamePad and primary screen for a two-step, precision sniping.

The Toolkits (previously in-game menus) are now all easily displayed and accessible on the GamePad.

The Radar is now featured on the touch screen and is a hybrid of the original radar and the 2D Map. Opening the 2D Map Toolkit allows players to draw hints, paths and notes that will remain on the radar.

The Quick Inventory is now displayed on the GamePad touch screen, leaving the primary screen clear.

Looting shows detailed descriptions about the items and doesn’t require players to access extra menus to see the content.

dx3lady2New Features;

Grenade Throw-Back: Grenades near Jensen appear on the GamePad, the player can then swipe the grenade icon to throw the grenade back.

New Augmentation “Tactical Pattern-Recognition System”: Display Jensen’s view through the GamePad touch screen. Moving the GamePad around will move Jensen’s view (the camera) in the same way, using the gyroscope. The NPC closest to Jensen’s center point of view (reticle) will have an extra information panel appearing over his head, giving precious information like the items carried, total health, armor type and state (unconscious, dead, normal). Jensen can still move and shoot while the T.P-R.S is active.

Infologs: Information packages that can contain detailed screenshots, voice recordings, drawing and typed notes all together. Infologs can be toggled as a physical beacon in-game to be played automatically when standing on it. Infologs can be shared through the Miiverse to your friends, which let them view your content in-game, without breaking the immersion.

New Game +: Lengthen the game with the New Game Plus; keeping Jensen’s augmentations on replay.

GamePad Mode: Ability to play on the GamePad (No TV needed).

  1. So glad its coming to the Wii U – there arent any ‘good’ games for it
    Deus Ex is seriously one of my favs of all time (ive played it on every difficulty lol) so im defiantly getting this (as soon as i get a Wii U that is)
    Im intrigued to see these new improvements for the boss fights myself – they werent really the best – the first boss was a pain in the ass, then the others were very easy to beat
    I was just thinking that the Wii U pad would work perfectly for hacking, map and accessing the other menus (using items and augmenting) – itll be great!
    Liking all this :) – looking forward to playing it! :D
