Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition And Pre-order Programs Revealed

In anticipation for the early 2011 release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Eidos has announced the Augmented Edition of the upcoming game, as well as two pre-order programs.  With a game that deals with choices, these pre-order packs (in addition to the Augmented Edition) should provide gamers with options on how to spend their money next year when this Cyber Adventure/Shooter hybrid is released.

The Augmented Edition, pictured here, comes packed with fan goodies, such as a 40-page artbook, exclusive DVD (which includes a making-of, special trailers, and animated storyboards), and a motion graphic novel.  The Augmented Edition will be available for $69.99, while the Standard Edition of the game will remain at $59.99.

You can still get more Deus Ex goodness if you pre-order from various retailers.

For example, pre-ordering from Gamestop will get you the Explosive Mission Pack, which includes a new mission (complete with a cameo from an original Deus Ex character), the Linebacker G-87 multiple shot grenade launcher, M-28 Utility Remote-Detonated Explosive Device (UR-DED for short), and an Automatic Unlocking Device.

Other participating retailers will provide the pre-order bonus of the Tactical Enhancement Pack.  It includes the Huntsman Silverback Double-Barrel Shotgun, Longsword Whisperhead Extreme Ranger Sniper Rifle, and extra credits to help you get your augmentations and upgrades on.

In Deus Ex: Human Revolution, you play as Adam Jensen, an ex-Swat specialist who gets mixed up in events that will not only affect him, but the evolution of mankind.  Like previous games in the series, not everything is always as it seems, and you have a choice of how to proceed through situations.  The beauty of the series has always been it’s near-future setting, making it a believable science fiction story, while still awe inspiring with its locals and scenarios.

Look for Deus Ex: Human Revolution early next year.  In the meantime, you have some options to ponder through.
