$10 Equals Extra 'Deus Ex' Goodies
A special “Augmented Edition” of Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be available for $10 more when the game arrives in March of next year.
The added goodies in the Augmented Edition include a 40-page book filled with concept art, a making-of DVD, a “motion comic” graphic novel, and the game’s soundtrack disc. You get all this in special packaging, along with the full retail version of the game, of course.
Pre-order the game now, and you’ll get even more. Pre-orders at GameStop come with the “Explosive Mission Pack,” which includes a Linebacker G-87 multi-shot grenade launcher, an M-28 Utility Remote-Detonated Explosive Device, an autopick (fans of the first game will remember those), and a whole new mission to play through that Square Enix says includes a “cameo” appearance by a character from the original game.
Pre-orders at other retailers will get the “Tactical Enhancement Pack,” which includes a Huntsman Silverback Double-Barrel Shotgun, a Longsword Whisperhead Extreme Range Sniper Rifle, and credits that can be spent in-game.
What are your thoughts about Human Revolution? I was enthralled by the first game, so my curiosity is very piqued to see if a new publisher can pull off a similar — or better — prequel game that uses the dynamics of the original. But the golden-hued art direction leaves me scratching my head, and the fact that Deux Ex creator Warren Spector isn’t involved at all has me worried.
Still excited to get my hands on it, though. How about you?
