Deus Ex: Human Revolution Gets Augmented With Fancy Extras (And A Release Date)

North American gamers will get their hands on Deus Ex: Human Revolution on August 23—earlier than our Australian counterparts. We'll also get a reasonably priced "Augmented Edition" for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC when the third Deus Ex game arrives.

What's in that $69.99 USD "Augmented Edition"? The following digital goods: a new mission, "10,000 extra credits to buy or upgrade weapons, plus a Huntsman Silverback Double-Barrel Shotgun, the SERSR Longsword Whisperhead silenced sniper rifle, the Linebacker G-87 multiple shot grenade launcher, and an Automatic Unlocking Device and the M-28 Utility Remote-Detonated Explosive Device (UR-DED)."

Human Revolution's "Augmented Edition" also contains "an exclusive bonus DVD featuring a 44-minute "making of" special, game soundtrack, motion-comic (adapted from DC's official series), the E3 trailer and animated storyboard, and a 40-page art book." Not too bad for an extra ten bucks.
