Deus Ex: Human Revolution to get 'Augmented' with special edition

For those of you hoping for an extra dose of rad with your copy of next year’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, publisher Square-Enix may have just made your cybernetic day.

That purdy-looking set shown above is a limited edition gaming meal with all of the fixin’s, or at least most of them - the set includes a 40-page art book, soundtrack, making-of documentary DVD, motion graphic novel, and foldout slip case. It may not include a big resin helmet or anything, but it'll retail for $69.99, just a sawbuck more than the standard version.

Also of note are the pre-order bonuses. For those not shopping at GameStop, participating retailers will award early purchases with the Tactical Enhancement Pack, which is loaded with a Huntsman Silverback Double-Barrel Shotgun, the Longsword Whisperhead Extreme Range Sniper Rifle, and extra credits to spend in-game.

Those who pre-order from GameStop will receive the Explosive Mission Pack, packed with a Linebacker G-87 multiple shot grenade launcher, the M-28 Utility Remote-Detonated Explosive Device, an automatic unlocking device, and an entirely new mission to play through, featuring a cameo by a character from the original Deus Ex.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution still has no firm release date, but it's expected to be out early next year, and pre-orders are now available.

    Wait, so now games have to be pre ordered for missions? That's bullshit.

    Great. I can't pre-order this game so no silenced sniper rifle in the game for me. Crazy how that works. An dthat extra mission too. Goddammit Eidos

    It's Mass Effect 2 all over. You just gotta pre-order it at Gamestop and some online store. Gamestop more often than not will hand you a card or some $#!% which you take home. Then return the game later (unopened of course)and get your cash back. That's how I got all of the DLC for ME2.

    I think it's important to point out that developers don't make these decisions, Square make the deals with GameStop and then the developers just have to like it or lump in, on the plus side I very much doubt these missions will be a big deal, in reality they're likely to be at most a mildly amusing side track, and more likely a pointless addition to what is hopefully a brilliant game that players could certainly do with out.

    This better fucking be on PC too. I am tired of shit like CoD Blops with no Specal ed's on PC

    *Sigh* I want this game a whole lot.

    I was not liking the pre-order bonus for GameStop until it mentioned the new mission with a cameo. I am even more excited for this now. I pre-ordered it the same day it was available. I will now upgrade to the collector's edition. It's Deus Ex; I don't care. ... Although with my luck the game will probably turn out poorly. I still have high hopes though.

A whole mission with a DE1 cameo ONLY FOR GAMESTOP CUSTOMERS?! I live in Europe, there is no GameStop where I live. So what, I am doomed to never realize the awesomeness of a bonus level and a recurring character? FUCK THIS SHIT AND FUCK THOSE GREEDY BASTARDS. I'm NOT fucking buying this game.

    Is that Milla Jovovich in the novel?
  • oufour - November 30, 2010 9:50 p.m.

    yeah weapons and avatar items are one thing but entire missions? that's pretty greedy. though for ten extra bucks this is definitely worth it.
  • JohnnyMaverik - November 30, 2010 9:38 p.m.

    I'm not sure how comfortable I am with bonus missions for store specific pre-orders, or in fact any pre-orders.
