Today, Square Enix officially announced the released date for the next installment in the Deus Ex franchise, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The publisher revealed that the cyberpunk role-playing game will launch on February 23 of next year, and also revealed the game’s the Collector’s Edition as well as their new “Augment Your Pre-order” campaign. Square Enix is trying something completely new where depending on the amount of people that reserve the game, the more bonuses will be unlocked to everyone who pre-orders it.

The Five Tier system will allow players to choose from multiple bonuses and build their own bundle. From in-game items to an extra mission, here’s a breakdown for each tier of the “Augment Your Pre-Order”:

  • Tier 1 – One Item per Pre-order (Unlocked for Everyone on Aug. 31)

Choose between three Starter Packs that cater to stealth, aggressive, or nostalgic players.
Intruder Pack — Provides a custom-skinned version of Adam Jensen’s trench coat and pistol with a silencer, laser sight, recoil, and accuracy upgrades. Other bonuses include two EMP grenades, five packs of 10MM pistol ammo, 1000 credits, and a Praxis point for early augmentations.
Enforcer Pack — Includes a custom-skinned version of Adam Jensen’s combat armor and combat rifle with a holosight, reload and capacity upgrades. Players will also receive two HE grenades, five packs of 5.56MM combat rifle ammo, 1000 credits, and a Praxis Point for early augmentations.
Classic Pack — Grants access to Adam Jensen’s iconic combat armor, trench coat, and revolver from Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Players will also receive an extra pack of revolver ammo.

  • Tier 2 – One Item per Pre-order

Pick between one of two bonuses that further immerse players into the game world – a digital art book that shows the aesthetic of the game, or a digital OST sampler with six tracks from award-winning composer Michael McCann.

  • Tier 3 – Available for Everyone

Unlock the “Desperate Measures” pre-order mission, in which Adam returns to the epicenter of the Ruzicka Train Station explosion and must rely on his augmentations and covert operative skills to unveil the true culprit responsible for the bombing.

  • Tier 4 – One Item per Pre-order

Get an in-depth look at the Deus Ex universe with a digital comic book that dives deeper into the game’s global conspiracies, or with a novella that follows iconic characters from Deus Ex: Human Revolution with new and unknown details on their lives.

  • Tier 5 – Available for Everyone

For the first time in the franchise’s history, if players meet this tier, the game will release four days before the official release date.

As of right now there is no word yet on what amount of pre-orders Square Enix is looking to obtain in order to have all tiers unlocked, but what is clear is that you can bypass all of this by purchasing the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Collector’s Edition.

The collector’s edition includes all the DLC listed in the “Augment Your Pre-Order” tiers as well as a 48-page artbook, a 9″ Adam Jensen figurine, a limited edition steelbook and the Day One edition of the game — which will all come in an exclusive packaging and will run you $149.99.
