Square Enix and Edios Montreal have announced the release date for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the sequel to the 2011 smash hit RPG.
Along with the launch date, details on pre-order incentives and the contents of the collector's edition have also been revealed.
Fans will once again jump into the familiar shoes of Adam Jensen on February 23, 2016. To incentivize pre-ordering, Square-Enix has launched a special “Augment Your Pre-Order” program which allows gamer to select the bonuses they will receive with the game. As more people pre-oder Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, higher reward tiers will unlock, with new items to pick and choose from. The 5th tier is especially interesting as it promises to release the game 4 days early before the official launch date if its requirements are met. The full reward list can be viewed below:
TIER 1 – ONE ITEM PER PRE-ORDER (UNLOCKED FOR EVERYONE ON AUG. 31)
