Deus Ex: Human Revolution gets PC patch

Load times cut by over 50 per cent.

PC copies of Deus Ex: Human Revolution have a day one patch waiting for them on Steam.

The fix promises to dramatically reduce game loading times, for some by more than 50 per cent.

"The speed increase depends on machine spec and settings, but loading time improvements of over 50 per cent have been measured on some machines," the patch notes read.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution reloads upon mission failure or death, making the patch an important fix for a game whose multiple methods of completing levels encourage experimentation.

The patch is available now - VG247 notes it is installed on preloaded Steam copies before the game unlocked.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution day one PC patch notes:

  • A frequent issue for AMD/ATI hardware users that can cause the game to crash on startup.
  • Improvements to loading speed. The speed increase depends on machine spec and settings, but loading time improvements of over 50% have been measured on some machines.
  • Diagonal movement is no longer faster as intended.
  • Adjustments have been made to mouse sensitivity in response to user feedback.
  • Mouse sensitivity for X and Y axis can still be configured separately, but is now consistent when set to default settings.
  • The range of settings for mouse sensitivity has been adjusted to provide for more accurate adjusting.
  • The default mouse sensitivity has been altered to be somewhat less sensitive.
