dehr1Eidos Montreal has a two disc Deus Ex: Human Revolution limited edition in the works. The bonus DVD has a making of movie, trailers, animated storyboard for the CGI trailer, and the game’s soundtrack. The Augmented Edition also includes a 40-page artbook and motion graphic novel for $69.99, $10 more than a standalone game.


Reserve either version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution at Gamestop and you’ll get the Explosive Mission pack as a bonus. This includes a Linebacker G-87 multiple shot grenade launcher, M-28 UR-DED (Utility Remote-Detonated Explosive Device), Automatic Unlocking Device, and a new mission with a cameo character from the original Deus Ex.



Reserve the game at another retailer and you’ll start the game with a Huntsman Silverback double-barrel shotgun, Longsword Whisperhead Extreme Range sniper rifle, and extra credits.

  • I didnt even know the game had a release date. Guess I will have to throw down the money and preorder from AMZN

  • [The Hunter] Doomrider

    Standard stuff, which is not a bad thing. Waiting for a European announcement, and then I’ll pre-order!Oh wait! It’s a digipak! Oh, I’m a sucker for those.

    Edit: It’s been announced for Europe too.

  • HPN

    I would love to get the Augmented Edition, but Explosive Mission pack is most likely DLC and my console is not hooked up to the net. I do plan on getting the basic version for PS3 though.

    • Arent you doing it wrong? Whats the point of owning a powerful console in this day and age, when one is not hooked up to the net all the time?!

      • HPN

        I rent a room and use the internet at the library. Plus I did not need the internet to enjoy video games with the NES and SNES.

        • Ohkay, it is just shocking to think that console games werent and can be enjoyed without being connected to the internet. It just wouldnt be the same without sharing data online with friends or even being able to communicate with them in the midst of a game or to share stuff online at the same time. I know one thing, that is one of the things I dislike for its lack on handhelds, and one thing I would hate to not have access to for a home console.

            Where have you been during the previous gen?

          • Aoshi00

            When once you have fresh you can’t go back to canned :)

          • The previous gen? I guess I was too busy hanging out with friends, exploring extracurriculars, and just simply using internet and technology as only tools for education and being a bit oblivious to videogaming.

            Speaking of which, I saw like the most amazing thing today, I saw like a piece of gameplay from Ocarina of Time, and let me just say, the game looks hella cool!!!!

      • Ereek

        I own both a 360 and a PS3 but neither are hooked up to the Internet 100% of the time.

        I don’t feel like I’m losing out on anything at all. If I want to go online, I’ll hook it up. He’s definitely not doing it wrong, just differently from you.

        • Aoshi00

          But there’s so much to d/l all the time (just like the computer is connected to the internet whenever it’s on), videos, demos, DLCs, downloadable games, XBLA/PSN games, themes, streaming from netflix, there’s always something I am downloading, unless your systems are nowhere near your router, plus uploading your scores from some games, and multiplayer too of course.. I watch all those videos from Inside Xbox too (Jpn & US), they’re so fun and informative. I like Bridget O’Neal doing the Kinect videos now (hawt!). I think I saw her at the Kinect Launch party but at that time I didn’t know who she was..

        • Guest

          Patches, updates…

          • Aoshi00

            yea, most new games need you to do some sort of update and patches.. and if you haven’t played them in a while, chances are they get updates too, can’t imagine your system isn’t online, unless it’s the Wii..

          • Ereek

            Hmm, not really. For example, on consoles I prefer to play a completely vanilla Fallout 3 over any updated version, because the patches make the PS3 version even glitchier.

            When you’re not online it simply just doesn’t give you the option to update. It doesn’t stop you from playing the game unless you’re doing online multiplayer or the like. In which case you’d be connected anyway.

          • Aoshi00

            yea, it’s just that they all have wi-fi, so I just have them sign on automatically.. unless it’s the PSP or DS, those I shut off the wi-fi when I don’t use them because they waste battery, unless I d/l the addt’l puzzles for Prof Layton or something.. Also I just like to see what games my friends are playing at the moment :)

          • Aoshi00

            I got Plus too, so I just check out what freebies they have, I just grab everything that’s free lol..

          • Ereek

            Yes, and? Like I said. If there’s something I want to download, I’ll connect to the Internet. It’s really that simple. Patches and updates don;t come out frequently enough for me to be connected 100% of the time.

            But hey, you do what you do and I do what I do. If you prefer to be connected all the time, fine by me! But I don’t need to be.

  • hush404

    I likes me some goodies.

  • papuruka

    40-page only for the artbook? Really? : For roughly the same price I can get so much more out of Witcher 2’s Collectors Edition.

    But that Deus Ex character cameo mission is so tempting…

    • Hraesvelgr

      I’m sure the artbook will be one of those hardcover “mini” artbooks that are all the rage with collector’s editions these days.

      • papuruka

        Have you seen the artbook that comes with the Witcher 2 Collectors Edition? It’s MASSIVE.

        And you get Geralt’s HEAD! A FREAKING HEAD!

  • Aoshi00

    The box looks really good, $10 more isn’t so bad, compared to $20-30 more (like Epic Mickey which I would just get the regular ver.). Wonder if my friend would get this on PS3 or PC, he likes Dues Ex so much he’s still playing the first one, he thinks it’s the best game in the world.

    For some reason I keep getting a Keanu Reeve vibe from this dude.. “Whoa! Shiny Prosthetics….”

    • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

      Or maybe… “Shiny Prosthetics?… Eeeexcellent, dude!”

      • Aoshi00

        Keanu’s detachedness is best for sci-fi, making things feel that much more surreal :)

        • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

          Yea, his demeanor made the whole thing feel like an acid induced trip… or fever induced dream. XD Can’t say he has a lot of range, but what he has is certainly fitting for those roles.

  • PrinceHeir

    can’t wait for this sucks it’s not fully third person but im still looking forward to it ^^

  • Fonic

    Looks nice. I have no idea which version to get though. My gut says PC will be the overall best but that’s not always the case this gen.
    Either way, makes me want to replay the original game yet again.

    • PC Elitist much?

      • Fonic

        Not at all. I do most of my gaming on consoles and my PC is pretty mediocre in terms of being a gaming rig. But I still have bad memories of the last Deus Ex console ports. But like I said, this gen things are often a bit different, hence my uncertainty over which version to get.
        I haven’t done the whole system wars fanboy thing since I was a little kid arguing with my friends over the SNES and Genesis.
