If we head back a few days, Square Enix started releasing mysterious bread crumb trails in an attempt to tease and torment Deus Ex
fans. Curious clues and codes started popping up, begging to be followed, explored and investigated.
The problem is however, rather than a slow drip feed of information coming forth, eager fans descended on the 'game' and tore it to shreds. The more resourceful of the bunch, and arguably more impatient, took to the Deus Ex
website and started sniffing through the website coding.
The answer was eventually found lurking with the RSS (news) feed code, and the air of mystery dissipated quite quickly. However, don't despair, the promise of DLC for the game is reward enough, right?
The DLC is titled "Missing Link" and will feature Adam Jensen after an unexplained three day absence, trying to escape from a freighter. On top of this Jensen's augmentations are out of action after being disabled.Joystiq
managed to grab a copy of the information pulled via the RSS code. Be warned there are some minor spoilers

The Deus Ex: Human Revolution conspiracy grows deeper in The Missing Link. During lead character Adam Jensen's quest for the truth in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, he mysteriously vanishes for three days. Where was he? What did he find out? The Missing Link reveals it all.
"We are very excited for Deus Ex: Human Revolution fans to be able to complete Adam's journey in the game with The Missing Link DLC," said David Anfossi, producer of Deus Ex: Human Revolution at Eidos-Montreal. "Gamers will be able to experience a vulnerable side of Adam like never before, which gives the overall game a whole new dimension. The Missing Link propels players into compelling gameplay, beginning with Adam being stripped of his use of augmentations, new, visually stunning environments and the continuation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution's conspiracy rich story."
After being tortured by Belltower agents and having his augmentations disabled, Adam Jensen must rely solely on his basic capabilities to escape from a freighter, destined for an unknown location. While fighting for his survival on the ship, he uncovers another layer to the conspiracy that he never would have suspected. As Adam, gamers will befriend new, mysterious allies and fight ruthless enemies to discover what was happening in the shadows during the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution!
Assuming the details grabbed from the Deus Ex
website are accurate, and remain unchanged, we can expect to see the "Missing Link" DLC hit the Xbox LIVE Marketplace September 8th. There's no word on pricing yet.
