I'm really looking forward to it and I hope the new consoles gives Eidos Montreal room to stretch their legs when it comes to the maps and environments. DE:HR was one of my favourite games in recent memory and I'm hoping the new one can capture the cinematic feel of HR while retaining the open environments and levels of the original.

The pessimistic side of me says that since this is going to use DX12 and TressFX 3.0 if and when it comes to the Mac one would either have to put up with massively reduced performance or missing features. There's no telling if Apple will adopt Vulkan or even if they do what time frame they will and whether that would line up with this game's release schedule.

Knowing some of those planned features I wouldn't blame anyone for just saying screw it and just play it in Bootcamp or a separate PC Gaming rig. I'm leaning toward the latter here since I don't dual boot.

My same sort of question with how the Witchers work. Maybe they will just 'pick one' and thats kind of the one they will move on, and people just have to accept that it was the story choice they should have done, or something.

Can't wait! Really happy to see that the team looks the same. Love the music in the trailer--Same composer, Michael Mccann. HR was great except for the mediocre final act.

I agree with Sneaky Snake that one of the main reasons HR wasn't as good was the lack of scope to the levels. Hoping with the new consoles that will no longer be the case.

Very cool-- glad to see this announcement! But I don't think there's much chance the new one will run on my Mac unless I dust off Bootcamp (which would need a new copy of Windows.)

I also wish the trailer had shown some stealth and/or hacking- it was all combat (with blood, not KO's). I expect future trailers will play up other aspects of the game-- not that there's any particular reason to believe they'll abandon the formula.

Yeah, played the original game hacking and stealthing around.   The last 3 times I played it, I used the mini wrist crossbow to trank my way through the game, especially during the first chapters because I see the big picture from playing repeatedly.  So I've kind of learned my lesson here and this is how I'm approaching HR in my first play through.  Also it's fun to just kill everybody and their dog, but I'll save that for some Judge Dredd style of justice.  

The HR stealth and hacking has been given a lot of detail compared to the original, though I haven't played since the era it came out.  It would be nice to see if this next iteration is smoothed out from time and experience gained by HR and improves the stealth and hacking mechanics even more.  

This is the kind of game I'm afraid to play because I can become totally absorbed in it.  When I have manual saves and loads I try many different approaches to the same room.  Also I can do the most stupid things in the world for giggles and not have to pay for it with a checkpoint save, I never liked checkpoint saves.  Anyway it's addictive in it's ability to steal all the time out of one's life.

I wouldn't be too worried about becoming totally absorbed in the game since it's not a super long game. I did a fairly thorough play through on hard difficulty when I played it and it took me about 25 hours. I didn't try multiple approaches and mess around, but I did take my time exploring and stuff. I would guess the most a playthrough could amount too would be 40 hours unless your reallllly dragging it out.

I guess I must creep around pretty slowly, I play every side mission I can, and sometimes I identify 2 or 3 ways into a tight spot before I choose which way to go. I hack every machine I see and read every email. Pretty much the only thing I don't do is chase achievements for their own sake.

Bottom line, it takes me a l-o-n-g time to play. A long, happy time.

The Director's Cut took me 50 hours to play through a single time very methodically.

Yeah, I'm at 40 now so I estimate I'll finish with around the same time as you.

Really? How? I clocked in 22hrs on the main game and 4.5hrs on the DLC. Do you mean over multiple play throughs?

As I said: one single playthrough, mainly stealthy, and methodically looking in most nooks and crannies.

Yeah I can easily hit the 40 hr mark when I'm maximizing the completion ratio. Especially when they go and throw 'collectibles' in the damn game. This game luckily didn't have a lot of that kind of nonsense (a bit... like looking in ever bed bunk for a recording of some sort)... but not as bad. And playing fully stealth can add lots of time, as one mistake means re-load!

When I go through a game as the badass... I can get through pretty darn quick, as I just throw rules to the wind and just kill relentlessly and get to the objective. I actually rarely reload a save too in that type of play-through.

DXHR was fun. I liked it, and look forward to this next chapter. (Invisible War was guuuuuuuuuh)

I always look at Howlongtobeat just to see what the typical times are and then I multiply by two to get my probable time. Yes, I am that slow.
