So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Old men are the future.

Debug Features

Disabled debug menus are present in the game. By using a modified patch file, you can re-enable the options on the main menu.

Map Select

Intros are lame.

This option will appear on the Main Menu while not in a game. Naturally, it lets you start from any part of the game.

While in the menu, there are two selection reels. Up and down change reels. The top reel is the primary area, the bottom one is specific to the area highlighted in the primary one.

Unused Areas

These areas are leftover from testing or press demos. In some cases, they're completely missing NPCs.

To do:
Actually document these things
  • Gamescom Demo (Detroit City Police, Police Station)
  • Tutorial Playtest (Sarif HQ Intro)
  • Zoo (All subareas crash the game.)
  • E3 Demo (The Hive E3, Lower Hengsha City Street E3, Seaport E3)
  • Cut Scene (all subareas are cutscene areas. the actual cutscenes don't seem to trigger)

Burger Menu

No pressure or anything...

The burger menu will appear in the main menu as "Debug Menu" when in a game. It acts as a general debug menu, as well as containing cheats like spawning items. It also displays a quote from the game's development in the corner.

Weapon Drawn Dialogue

If Jensen is holding a weapon when he attempts to speak with most characters, he will be told to put it away. However, certain areas force weapons to be holstered, so some functional dialogue goes unheard.

UNI_PRIT_GUN_001 | "Let's do this without the weapon."

Pritchard can normally only be spoken to in person at Sarif HQ, which restricts weapons. The game's tutorial, however, needs to allow weapons, and Pritchard can be found on that map. If the Tutorial Playtest is accessed through the debug menu, the doors to David Sarif's office will be open, which leads to Athena and the elevator in that room. The elevator doesn't function, but with the Burger Menu's invincibility (and without the Icarus Landing System) the player can walk off the ledge, pull back towards the office, and land on lower floors. These other floors are where Megan gets off the elevator in the introduction, followed by where Pritchard gets on. Since the introduction hasn't begun, Pritchard is patiently waiting in a standard NPC state for the elevator to arrive.

UNI_WING_GUN_001 | "This is a clinic! Put that away."

This is Dr. Wing Hui of Hengsha's LIMB clinic who offers a sidequest during the second visit. Since he only appears inside the clinic, this cannot be heard.

Regional Difference

In the sewers of Lower Hengsha, there is a breakable wall only accessible with the Punch Through Wall augment. Inside the room are several Nuke Virus Softwares, a Valve to turn off poisonous gas, and two dildos on a mattress next to a bottle of lube and box of tissues. The two dildos were removed in the Japanese version as the Japanese ratings board prohibits the depiction of sex objects in retail games.

In the Director's Cut version of the game, they are completely absent from the game for all regions.
