Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Release Date Announced, Tier-Based Pre-Order Campaign Detailed
As part of a big news update today, Square Enix and Eidos Montreal announced that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is releasing on February 23, 2016 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
There will be a large pre-order campaign accompanying Mankind Divided, with more rewards unlocked as more copies are reserved by gamers. Titled Augment Your Pre-Order, you’ll be able to choose which item from each unlocked tier is included in the Day One Edition, and if tier 5 is hit, the game launches four days early.
Here’s the different tiers:
Tier 1 – One Item Per Pre-Order (Unlocked for Everyone on August 31)

- Intruder Pack – Provides a custom-skinned version of Adam Jensen’s trench coat and pistol with a silencer, laser sight, recoil and accuracy upgrades. Other bonuses include two EMP grenades, five packs of 10MM pistol ammo, 1000 credits and a Praxis point for early augmentations.
