Proposed pre-order incentives for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided to be included in launch edition version
Along with the initial news of the release date for its upcoming game Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, the game’s publisher Square Enix announced a rather unique incentive-based set of pre-order bonuses. This “Augment Your Pre-Order” pack allowed those reserving the game to pick and choose what content they would like to receive as their pre-order bonuses. With more reservations came new rewards, including a release 4 days earlier than announced.
While Square Enix liked the idea, it seemed that no one else did. The company underwent a severe wave of backlash from fans in regards to their new program.
Alas, the incentive-based pre-order program is no more. Rather, all previously mentioned pre-order bonuses will now be included in the Day-One version of the game; it matters not if the game was pre-ordered. The release date for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is now also officially locked-in; February the 23rd.
So, what are your thoughts on the now-scrapped pre-order program? Do you think Square Enix made the right call? Be sure to sound off in the comments section below.
