Deus Ex: Mankind Divided – Augment Your Pre-Order Program Revised After Huge Fan Backlash

Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal today announced that the Augment Your Pre-Order program for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, has been revised to better meet the expectations of the Deus Ex community. Now this is huge news and something that a lot of gamers will be happy to hear as, let’s face it, those tiers were kind of funny.

Initially conceived as a reward to players by allowing them to choose their own content (mirroring one of Deus Ex’s core gameplay pillars), the promotion was negatively viewed by the community and the media.

David Anfossi, Studio Head at Eidos-Montréal, said:

“We really understand and appreciate the passion for Deus Ex that the fans have shown here. Know that all of us, both at Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal, share that passion for this franchise.”

A vast majority of the negative feedback received arose from the tiers, and the requirement of specific pre-order numbers to unlock them. Therefore, taking into account the feedback from fans, the pre-order tiers have been removed, and all of the associated content with the program will now be made available for free to anyone who pre-orders or purchases a Day 1 edition of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Additionally, the release date will no longer be changed in accordance to pre-order numbers, and everyone will gain access to the game on February 23rd.
