Eidos Montreal announced today that they have made a deal with Steam to offer their upcoming title, Deus Ex: Human Revolution through the digital service. The game will also support Steamworks features such as auto-updating, achievements and Steam Cloud. And if you choose to pre-order the game, you'll definitely save money - the regular edition will cost you $44.99 US and the Augmented Edition $53.99 US.

The Steam version of the Augmented Edition contains a digital 40-page artbook, a download code for the original Deus Ex, a making-of feature, Human Revolution's many trailers, a graphic novel, soundtrack, and more.

Earlier this week, the studio also shared the minimum and recommended system specs for the PC version:

Minimum:

  • 2.0 GHz dual core processor;
  • Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 with DirectX 9.0c;
  • 1 GB of RAM on Windows XP, or 2 GB on Windows Vista/Windows 7;
  • An Nvidia GeForce 8000 series graphics card, or ATI Radeon HD 2000 series, or better;
  • 8.5 GB of HD space.

Recommended:

  • AMD Phenom II X4 or Intel Core 2 Quad processor;
  • Windows 7;
  • 2 GB of RAM;
  • An ATI Radeon HD 5850 graphics card or equivalent;
  • 8.5 GB of HD space.

Since it was 'PC Week' this week, Eidos did a whole lot of talking about this version in particular, including: Nixxes, the company who worked on the port; AMD features; and the user interface. There's quite a lot of video at Eidos Montreal's YouTube channel here. (My favourite video is the one of someone playing the game on three monitors.)

Finally, you can check out some PC screenshots - the last five in our gallery, linked below. Deus Ex: Human Revolution, which will also see PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 releases, will be released in North America on August 23rd and in Europe on August 26th. The retail versions will go for $59.99 US (regular) and $69.99 US (Augmented Edition).
