Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Ultimate Edition hits Apple’s Mac App Store

Feral Interactive today confirmed that first-person role-playing game Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Ultimate Edition is available in Apple’s Mac App Store. 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 is 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, in a statement.

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.

Minimum system requirements call for a 2.0GHz Intel Mac with at least 4GB RAM, 20GB free Hard Drive space, 256MB or better graphics card, and Mac OS X 10.7.3 or later. The following graphics cards are not supported: ATI X1xxx series, ATI HD2xxx series, NVIDIA 9400, NVIDIA 7xxx series, NVIDIA 320M, Intel HD3000 and Intel GMA series.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Ultimate Edition for the Mac is available online for direct download now via Apple’s Mac App Store here.

    1. Perhaps Cook visited Steam was to make an agreement to hold off on the Mac product for a certain amount of time. Though it was stated, no visit to Steam ever happened. And the sun doesn’t shine too. Mac does need to gear more into gaming if it wishes to be a house hold member like the XBox and PS3.

        1. actually…………..
          if you are a Steam gamer, you’d KNOW there are sales. Steam has HUGE sales all the time. example: I have Dawn of War 2 and all DLC… I paid half the retail price for the DLC cause it was on sale. Bought the physical DVD’s off amazon for $5 each.. (Gold edition and Retribution)

          2 minutes searching resulted in this.. **Read Disclaimer below**
          http://www.amazon.com/Deus-Ex-Revolution-Standard-Download/dp/B005HRZ29K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335501291&sr=8-1

          $10, plus the 3 expansions at $20 total… STILL cheaper than the MAS at $30. Go for the Augmented Version for $15 for a grand total of $35! (honestly unless you are a huge Fan of the dev’s/series nobody ever even looks at that stuff, and the video’s are all posted on youtube etc anyway)
          Wait for a sale… and you’ll get the entire thing for even less. When does any big title game like this EVER go on a 50-75% off sale on the MAS? never…
          iOS games and such sure.

          Yes I posted an amazon link… scroll down, holy crap…. “A Steam account is required for game activation.”
          You buy from amazon, select to view the CD key, fire up Steam and input the code… done. you just saved another $20.

          Again, if you are a Gamer… this is not news.

          ** Disclaimer**
          As I said earlier though.. Steam has the PC only version right now. That generally changes after there is a Mac and PC version of the game. So purchasing the game on amazon and activating on Steam *should* result in the Mac version also… maybe not this week though…

          1. Mdn deleted my post….. Again. But I have the screenshot still, and the text saved. Maybe I’ll post it again…. MDN doesn’t like people showing the mas being overpriced.

            Amazon has it for $10, $15 for augmented version. Code REQUIRES activation on steam. (as with many games in the amazon download store)

            Buying all 3 dlc and game from amazon… Saves you $15 from mas version.

            As I stated earlier, steam currently has the pc version only… But once a bug title like this comes to Mac, that does change and you get both versions tied to your account.

            Steam is notorious for 50-75% off sales all the time. Deus ex was on sale not too long ago also. Mas will never be that much off.

            Big name titles, bad idea to buy off mas. You’ll pay way too much.

          2. here the Amazon link that MDN doesn’t like to see..
            Now that I log in on the iMac I see my post is there.. but “Your comment is awaiting moderation.” so nobody can see it.

            http://www.amazon.com/Deus-Ex-Revolution-Standard-Download/dp/B005HRZ29K/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335501291&sr=8-1

            $10 for the game, $15 augmented. “A Steam account is required for game activation.” right in the description.

            Gamers know the deals steam has.. i’ll bet the mac version hits steam soon, and the DLC will be on sale. paying $50 is not worth it at this point.

            1. saldin, that was before I got home and did any searching. And the amazon price… IS steams price. Deus ex is a steam works title… Doesn’t matter where you get it, it needs steam. The mas version may not due to a different publisher doing it now.

    2. Actually, no. Ports typically don’t show up on steam for some time. And this release is not the same as the basic version of th game on steam for $30. Add up all the DLC and it’s not a bad price on the app store.

      Glad to see more serious games released for the Mac.

      1. and just FYI.. people DO run this thing called bootcamp..
        even if the game never comes to steam for mac.. you can still get it cheap, and run it from bootcamp. Just go to the Mac forums.. so many do just that.

        And just a quick search, the game was on sale last month for $19 and over Christmas for $16. (on steam) and As I showed the link above.. $10 on amazon right now.

  1. Matrix mets Bladerunner mets Halo.
    Look like a long long download yet a load of a load of fun.
    However, in all its’ glory – sorry to say – won’t buy and won’t fill my Mac with such wonderment. But thanks to bring it to Mac.

  2. The iMacTV needs to power house home entertaining gaming unit all in one with retina games to blow the mind – not 3D glasses and the likes – however augmented reality controllers and iPod touch (new) to experience a all new level of gaming.

  3. FYI:
    Another game that has not received any media attention that was just released today on the MAS, Bastion. ($15)
    GREAT game, different than the typical RPG game out there.
    come on… it has a reactive Narrator… (You have to play it to understand)

    Dev’s confirm that the Steamplay version will be next week. (Buy once, get both PC and Mac versions)
    http://supergiantgames.com/

    I got it last winter for I think $2?

    regardless it’s a great game, and another reason to make sure you pay attention to games and their prices via the MAS.

    it’s great for Mac apps… not so great for games.
    Games come and go with popularity, prices fluctuate rapidly with games, and replaced easily with a new version or another game entirely. Mac apps themselves don’t fluctuate nearly as much..

    Bastion is a great title, great it’s coming to Mac now as well.

    (Only reason I was posting this.. I fired up the MAS to update an app, saw Bastion in the featured banner and smiled)
