For everyone who has been waiting Patiently for the new installment in the Deus Ex series, you won’t have to wait long. Square-Enix have announced that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will launch on February 23rd, 2016 on PS4. But in an odd marketing push, they are offering a special incentive if more people pre-order.
These incentives range from a digital book about the world of Deus Ex, all the way to a four-day early release. These sort of things have been done in the past, although pushing to have the release date bumped up four days is rather unique.
Time will tell if this tactic works, and if it does if other publishers follow suit. I for one enjoy seeing companies offering things for loyal fans of the series, but the concept you only get it if a large range of people purchases the game early seems a bit odd.
Stay tuned to CGMagazine for all your details on the series and upcoming news about the release, and tune in closer to release date for your detailed review of the game.

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided release date announced, Collector’s Edition detailed
Today, we’re very excited to announce that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be launching on PlayStation 4 on 23rd February 2016.
The team has been working hard on the game, and even if its release is still a few months away, having a set date where we know you’ll get a chance to experience the game first hand is a huge motivation for all of us.
In the spirit of player choice, which is at the heart of Deus Ex, we’ve put together a special program called “Augment your pre-order”. It will let you choose the digital pre-order bonuses you want to get for your Day One edition of the game, selected from five different tiers which will unlock progressively. You can of course take part in this program by pre-ordering the game through PlayStation Store.
The available rewards within each tier include in-game items packs, digital books and music expanding on the world of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, and an extra in-game mission. The very last tier is one of a kind, as its reward will be an early release of the game, four days prior to its scheduled launch! For more details on Augment your Pre-order, check out augmentyourpreorder.com.
If you want everything, we’ve also got your covered. The Collector’s Edition for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will include all the in-game content and rewards from Augment your Pre-order, as well as physical items, selected based on the thousands of votes you submitted to us during our community vote for this edition.
The aforementioned physical items include a 48-page artbook created in partnership with Titan Books, a 9″ Adam Jensen figurine, a limited edition steelbook and, of course, the Day One edition of the game – which will all come in an exclusive packaging.
We can’t wait for you to experience Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. In the meantime, keep an eye out for more information and reveals in the coming months!
