Square Enix has revamped the pre-order program for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. After receiving negative feedback from the community about the former tier-based model, which added items as pre-order milestones were met, the studio has decided to go with an all-in-one plan: “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.” One particularly contentious bonus was the ability to play the game early. This has also been changed, and now, everyone will be able to access the game on February 23.

Square Enix has revealed that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will be released on February 23 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A pre-order promotion was also detailed, titled Augment Your Pre-Order. Similar to the approach taken with Drakengard 3, items are added as tier goals are met through pre-order sales. In this case, the extras will be available in the Day One Edition. Early buyers will not only be able to select which items they want from unlocked tiers, but they will also be given the chance to bump up the release date by four days. The full list is available below, and a FAQ has been made available here. For those wanting a bit more, a Collector’s Edition will come with a 48-page art book, a 9” Adam Jensen figure, and a steelbook, in addition to all to the regular pre-order bonuses and a copy of the Day One Edition.
