Why spend $60 on the plain vanilla version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution when you can get a box full of extra stuff for $70? Square Enix details the Augmented Edition and preorder bonuses for the upcoming action RPG sequel.
Available early next year for $69.99 ($59.99 PC), the Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition bundles the game inside some rather attractive premium packaging, along with a 40-page art book, a motion graphic novel, a making-of DVD, and the game's soundtrack. Pretty standard stuff, but that art book sure looks gorgeous, doesn't it?
More bonuses come to those that preorder the game at participating retailers. Putting money down at a retailer that isn't GameStop will score players the Tactical Enhancement Pack, which comes with a Huntsman Silverback Double-Barrel Shotgun, the Longsword Whisperhead Extreme Range Sniper Rifle, and extra credits to spend in game.
GameStop preorders will secure the Explosive Mission Pack, packed with a Linebacker G-87 multiple shot grenade launcher, the M-28 Utility Remote-Detonated Explosive Device, an automatic unlocking device, and an entirely new mission to play through, featuring a cameo by a character from the original Deus Ex.
So how and where will you folks be buying Deus Ex: Human Revolution?
