The Missing Link DLC, the first available for Eidos Montreal’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, will include a boss battle unlike those found in the standard game. Speaking with Eurogamer, Eidos Montreal said the boss encounter will be less frustrating than those in the primary game.
Marc-Andre Dufort, producer of the DLC, said, "You can actually not kill the boss. You can do a non lethal takedown on him. And you can kill him from afar. You can even kill him without him seeing you. It's more of a bigger challenge than a standard boss fight like we have in many games."
Eidos Montreal outsourced its boss battles in Deus Ex to Grip Entertainment. For anyone that played Deus Ex, you likely found that boss battles deviated from the game’s otherwise play-as-you-like premise. But, the boss battle in The Missing Link, was done in-house at Eidos Montreal.
"Everything was done in Montreal at Eidos," Dufort said "It's a lot less frustrating. But it depends on the way you play. If you played more combat in the main game, you probably didn't have any trouble dealing with the boss fights. So we allow the adaptation of the way you play for that particular boss fight."
The DLC is out next month and features five more hours of gameplay. It finds our hero, Adam Jensen, in a boat without his precious augmentations or weapons.

"play as you like" hardly, its more like "play as you like...but your screwed if you don\'t pick up that heavy weapon"
who are they going to blame the last level on? you know the one with the (to avoid spoilers you know what enemies are there if you completed it) it was a case of grab the bigest gun you could and walk slowing firing ahead of you, its like that airport level in MW2 only with less ammo and with a stiff, clunky main character.
