UK developer Feral Interactive today confirmed that first-person role-playing game Deus Ex: Human RevolutionTM – Ultimate Edition will be released for the Mac on Thursday, April 26th. Developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix for games consoles and PC, Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a prequel to the legendary Deus Ex (2000).
The Mac release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Ultimate Edition will be a complete version of the game, containing the Explosive Mission and Tactical Enhancement packs and The Missing Link DLC.
“This is the next step in Mac gaming,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive.
Set in 2027, Deus Ex: Human Revolution immerses players in a world where amoral corporations market biomechanical modifications that blur the boundary between man and machine. The player controls Adam Jensen, the security chief of biotech company Sarif Industries, who has been forced to undergo extensive cybernetic augmentation after a terrorist attack on the company.
To find those responsible, the player must explore the full potential of Adam’s augmented body and develop it to suit their playing style. Every situation can be approached either by focusing on one of the four pillars of gameplay – combat, stealth, hacking and social – or by deploying an artful combination of all four.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s engrossing plot puts players in strikingly inventive visions of Detroit, Shanghai and Montreal, where they must scrutinize everything to uncover the secrets behind a global conspiracy that threatens everyone, from the purely human underclass to the augmented elite.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution has enjoyed huge critical and commercial success on its original release platforms. The Windows version has an average Metacritic rating of 90 out of 100 and has sold over 3 million units to date.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Ultimate Edition for the Mac will retail in North America for US $49.99, £34.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and €39.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe. When released, it will be available online for direct download from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide including the Mac App Store. A mini-site dedicated to the game is available now.
