VG247 has been told Eidos Montreal’s puzzling trail of clues leads to DLC for Deus Ex: Human revolution.
According to our source, Eidos Montreal is set to reveal a new piece of DLC for the critically acclaimed RPG, in line with previously confirmed plans.
The DLC follows events of two days spent onboard a ship. The player is isolated from the support networks found in the core Human Revolution game, and must face events independent of comm advice.
While travelling, the player discovers the vessel is a floating prison of some kind, and that experiments are being carried out on the inmates. Environments include plenty of cells and a sentry tower.
It’s not clear whether the DLC is an event tied to Human Revolution’s plot, or part of the broader Deus Ex storyline – perhaps an episode from original protagonist JC Denton’s adventures, which would explain Eidos Montreal’s promotional build up.
Lending credence to this theory is a comment from our source to the effect that one build of the DLC saw players choosing a new augmentation configuration rather than importing a Human Revolution save file.
It’s not clear how the described content fits in with already solved puzzle elements, which make mention of Uluru in central Australia – although fictional PMC organisation Belltower Associates, which played a prominent role in Human Revolution, is known to have an office in the country, and the Deus Ex canon makes mention of a civil war in Australia.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is available now for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
