Add yet another title to the February 2016 release schedule as Deus Ex: Mankind Divided now has an official release date for February 23rd of 2016 on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. That is also a world wide release date at that as Square Enix has written it in soft stone. I say soft stone here as it looks like Deus Ex: Mankind Divided may still get a release date change only this time it won't be based on Eidos Montreal needing time but more in line of how many of us out there actually pre-order Deus Ex: Mankind Divided earlier than said date.
Confused? Well let's explain here.
No matter what Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be hitting homes on February 23rd of 2016. The reason this may change is due to the fact that Square Enix is running a pre-order program that will unlock extra things for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided based on the number of pre-orders. This campaign of course being Augment Your Pre-Order and it has gone live already. The date change comes in if Eidos Montreal's new Deus Ex title meets and beats the pre-order goals where we all may be getting Deus Ex: Mankind Divided four days earlier than that. Although there is no listing of how many pre-orders that will be.
That of course is the highest tier of pre-orders for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Each other tier has its own little extra bonuses with one coming just for those who pre-order right now. If you want to see all of the pre-order bonuses you can get for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided here's a nice little breakdown as well as a nice little trailer to try and explain this campaign a bit more. It sounds convoluted on the Square Enix end but it is just little extras for securing your copy of Mankind Divided a little earlier than everyone else. Here's said breakdown.
Tier 1 - One Item per Pre-order (Unlocked for Everyone on Aug. 31)
Tier 2 – One Item per Pre-order
Tier 3 – Available for Everyone
Tier 4 – One Item per Pre-order
Tier 5 – Available for Everyone
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided — Augment Your Pre-Order
To go another step further, even if it doesn't explain if it aids the above tiers, it looks like there will also be a Deus Ex: Mankind Divided collector's edition that comes with all the usual stuff collector's editions come with. The only difference is that it secures all of that extra content up to tier four that Eidos Montreal has created no matter how well Deus Ex: Mankind Divided does in the pre-order market. This of course shows that all of it will also be available at some point after the official release date of February 23rd for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Isn't DLC fun? Only when it really expands the gaming experience…
You've seen how you can Augment Your Pre-Order here for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided but are you going to actually participate? Will you even bother and just purchase the collector's edition of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to make sure you get everything? How long until Eidos Montreal makes all of this available with no conditions? Discuss and speculate down in the comments. Now that we know when Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be hitting the market it looks like we can see the release schedule for details from Square Enix as we lead into that date.
