Eidos Talks Up The Deus Ex: Human Revolution PC Version

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is out in a little over a weeks time so Eidos-Montreal have taken the opportunity to talk up the game's PC version.

In a recent interview with GameSpy, Eidos-Montreal and Nixxes, the developers of the game's PC version, spoke on how the PC version will not be a port of the console version.

Nixxes president Jurjen Katsman stated;
“First off, Nixxes developed a DX11 renderer that is used on the PC, when available,” he said. “We did leverage this by adding several features you will see when you have DX11 hardware on your PC: real-time tessellation, improved Screen Space Ambient Occlusion, improved blurs and depth of field. We also added custom support for AMD’s Eyefinity (multiple monitors), and 3DHD. On another note, the user interface has been tailored for the keyboard, and mouse controls can be fully customized for your gaming habits.”

“We are obviously a little biased, but for us here at Nixxes, the PC version really is the version you should play. The extra depth you get from 3D or EyeFinity, and the extra crispness of the enhanced resolution, effects, and frame-rate, really give you superior visuals. And the speed and accuracy that you get from playing with mouse and keyboard compared with a gamepad, at least for me personally, makes it a pretty easy choice.”
Eidos-Montreal's director of technology offered up;
“Working with an external studio that had lots of experience on PC, with which Eidos had been working for several years, started to make a lot of sense,” he explained. “Nixxes knew the engine extremely well, they had delivered many PC games, and were huge fans of the Deus Ex franchise as well. The head office was really supportive of this decision, and retrospectively, I am convinced this is one of the best decisions we made to ensure the quality of the game.”
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is out on August 23 in the US and August 26 in the UK for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
