Eidos Montreal Address Fan Feedback and Make Deus Ex: Human Revolution's Highlighting Optional

When Deus Ex purists saw that targets, objectives and other interactive objects were highlighted in yellow outlines, they were sure to make themselves heard, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution developer Eidos Montreal took notice.
As a result, the studio has addressed the game's Augmented Reality system, by making the yellow outlines entirely optional. In short, you can switch the highlighting on and off at your own convenience.
The Augmented Reality highlighting was included to increase immersion, in keeping with the cybernetic augmentations of the game's hero, Adam Jensen. But, based on fan feedback, you can now turn off the outlines if you want. The system works!
