Square Enix has announced that gamers will be able to augment themselves for the betterment of mankind early next year. Pre-order details for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
have also been revealed in a major campaign leading up to the release, which they're calling “Augment Your Pre-Order”.
The "Augment Your Pre-Order" campaign allows players to choose from a selection of physical or digital options that will be included with your purchase from a certain tier of bonuses. The more orders that are placed in advance, the more options players will have to choose from when purchasing early. Unfortunately they did not announce exactly what the purchase goal would be in order for everyone to advance to the next tier of bonus options, but the final tier, TIER 5, will allow players who pre-ordered the game to select one bonus from each tier and the title will be released four days earlier than the current release date. For further information, check out the various tier options below that players can anticipate or watch the video for an overview:TIER 1 – ONE ITEM PER PRE-ORDER (UNLOCKED FOR EVERYONE ON AUG. 31)
