The last we heard on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was that the game was delayed until August 23rd of this year and it was a sad day. Today we get a whole bunch of updates from Eidos-Montreal for the game as well as a nice new look at the Collector's Edition that Square Enix is going to bundle up and ship out to us all for the pretty standard price. Are you as glad as I am that we have new Deus Ex news that isn't bad for once? Although it does err on the side of a little bit of confusing in name more than anything.
First we have the new trailer for the game here. It is a "101 Trailer" that seems to be all the rage for the publishers to hand out to make certain we at least know the basics of the game before we pick it up. Unlike other trailers of the same ilk the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided 101 trailer doesn't really give us a look at how we will use the mechanics of the game but a bit more on the additions to Adam we will get to master. Apparently he had a whole slew of extra "hidden" augments placed in during his last upgrade that he never knew about and are now thrown into the mix.
Most of the ones that are spoken of in the following trailer are things we have heard of before in more detail. Things like the husk armor and the nano-blades. We just get to see them in different uses here for Deus Ex and it looks like a lot more "grime" has been added into the game's world. It looks like those delays are going to pay off well so we can start to forgive Eidos for all of that. As long as the game plays just right when it finally ships on out.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided — 101 Trailer
As mentioned before we also have a look at the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided collector's editions of the game. At least in terms of the PS4 and Xbox One versions as the PC version will be completely digital and house the game and the digital content bonuses mentioned before. The boxed editions here have all of the usual items we know to be in collector's editions. It has a statue, an art book, and soundtrack. Nothing that screams "Must Have" for your casual fan but the hardcore Deus Ex fans ill ant to be sure to get the statue if anything.
Day One Edition — $59.99
Collector’s Edition — $ 139.99
What do you think about the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Collector's Edition here? What do you think about all of the "extra" augments spoken of in the above trailer? Do you see the extra care placed in due to the delay or is it all wishful thinking on my end? Let us know and discuss away in the comments below. For all things Deus Ex be sure to stay right here so you can catch all of the updates and upgrades that will come as we head into the release window.
