Originally conceived as a program to “give you more choice about what you received in terms of pre-order incentives,” rather than have the developer pick them and split the items across regions, Eidos Montreal realized Augment Your Pre-Order caused even more frustration:
We quickly noticed this approach created even more frustration than before, resulting in a resounding amount of negative feedback.
Going through the comments and feedback, Eidos has decided to give all the tiered content to everyone who pre-orders Mankind Divided:
After much thought and reflection, we decided to close down the program and make all of the incentive content available to anyone who pre-orders Deus Ex: Mankind Divided or purchases a Day 1 edition of the game. Additionally, the release date will no longer be changed in accordance with pre-order numbers, and everyone will gain access to the game on February 23, 2016.
