Deus Ex: Mankind Divided emerges in February with an augmented special edition

Square Enix has launched a unique pre-order campaign for its upcoming stealth-based first-person shooter Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, giving players the chance to unlock the game early by reaching online community milestones.

The “Augment Your Pre-Order” campaign offers a set of unlockable in-game content, allowing early buyers to customize their own “loadout” of pre-order bonuses.

As more pre-order sales are logged, additional content will be unlocked at the Augment Your Pre-Order online portal. The final unlockable bonus will grant pre-order buyers early access to the full version of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided four days ahead of its retail launch.

Other potential pre-order rewards for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided include character skins, music samplers, bonus in-game missions, and digital art books and comics, among other perks. If all pre-order goals are met, buyers will receive their choice of one bonus from each of five available content tiers.

Players can opt to skip the promotion and get all available bonuses in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided‘s retail-exclusive Collector’s Edition, priced at $140. In addition to its compilation of in-game bonuses, the Collector’s Edition also offers a Steelbook case, a nine-inch Adam Jensen figure, and a 48-page art book featuring Deus Ex: Mankind Divided concept art and renders.

A direct sequel to 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Mankind Divided sees the return of technologically augmented security specialist Adam Jensen, who has partnered with an international coalition to put an end to terrorist attacks that are increasing in frequency and ferocity in the year 2029. Like previous games in the Deus Ex series, Mankind Divided will allow players to forge their own upgrade paths and assemble a uniquely personalized set of character abilities, resulting in a campaign that emphasizes stealth, tactics, gunplay, or other core gameplay mechanics, balanced to suit the player’s tastes.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will launch on February 23, 2016.
