Much like any aspiring Playboy Playmate, Deus Ex: Human Revolution
is about to get tactically augmented. In this case, there won't be as much silicon involved; rather an Augmented Edition of the game, now available for pre-order. Included with the Augmented edition will be a 40 page art book, a motion based graphic novel, and a bonus DVD on top of some special packaging (as seen below). Aside from the the fact that it it's $10 more than the standard version ($69 instead of $59 for the console version); it plays the same.
The tactical advantage comes from pre-ordering the game. If you do so through Gamestop, you get access to an extra mission plus some additional weapons. Go any place else to pre-order, and you get a couple weapons and some extra in-game credits.
DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION AUGMENTED EDITION AND PRE-ORDER PROGRAMS REVEALED
WHAT: Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in North America, today revealed the DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION Augmented Edition. In addition, two tactical packs will be offered as pre-order rewards to enhance the gameplay experience, including exclusive weapons, a bonus mission and in-game currency.
DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION is the return to one of the most critically-acclaimed video game franchises of all time. The game tells the story of Adam Jensen, a man cybernetically augmented against his own choice who finds himself in the middle of a global conspiracy to which he holds the key. By offering players the chance to advance through the game in multiple and vastly different ways, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION challenges the foundations of gaming and provides an immersive experience where every choice has a lasting consequence.
