Deus Ex 3 Dated, Bundles Revealed (Updated)

By - Source: Square Enix PR | B 28 comments

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is slated to hit the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC on August 23, 2011.

Square Enix has announced the official release date of the long-awaited third installment to the DEUS EX series, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION. The game is slated to hit the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC on August 23, 2011.

"We are extremely excited and proud of DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION and cannot wait to finally let gamers experience this unique and captivating game," said Stephane D'Astous, general manager of Eidos-Montreal. "The team has worked incredibly hard these last few years to create an unforgettable universe which introduces franchise fans and new players alike to this powerful vision of the future, where the choices you make create your own personal gameplay experience."

In addition to the release date, Square Enix revealed the pre-order programs for GameStop and other retailers. In addition to the game, GameStop will provide the Explosive Mission Pack which includes an extra mission, a special grenade launcher, the M-28 Utility Remote-Detonated Explosive Device (UR-DED) and an automatic unlocking device.

Square Enix said that other retailers participating in the pre-order program will offer the Tactical Enhancement Pack. This will contain the Huntsman Silverback double-barrel shotgun, the Longsword Whisperhead silenced sniper rifle, a damage weapon upgrade, a reload speed weapon upgrade, and 10,000 extra credits. Honestly, the Tactical Enhancement Pack sounds like a better deal.

DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION will arrive this August in two flavors: the $59.99 Standard Edition and the $69.99 Augmented Edition. This latter version will include an extra 40-page Artbook, an exclusive bonus DVD (Making Of, Special Trailers, Animated storyboard of CGI trailer and Soundtrack), premium packaging and a motion graphic novel.

DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION tells the story of Adam Jensen, a man cybernetically augmented against his will who finds himself in the middle of a global conspiracy to which he holds the key. The game is set in a near-future world where humanity is at a turning point. By offering players the chance to play the game in multiple and vastly different ways, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION "challenges the foundations of gaming and provides an immersive experience where every choice has a lasting consequence."

UPDATE: Previously Square Enix only mentioned the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in the launch date announcement. However, the company assured us that "the PC version is on track as well and will ship at the same time." The article has been revised to reflect the new info.

    A better deal? They are selling you a few extra flipped bits! It's a low down dirty shame that they can't just sell one product any more, they have to let anyone stupid, er willing enough to spend extra money have an advantage.

    I don't care how long it takes the PC version to come out as long as they get rid of the consolitis. There's no point in a pc version if the game is nearly unplayable without a controller.

    No PC date?!? Are you kidding me??

    First Crysis 2, now this. I thought this would be a really good year for the PC, but apparently not.

    well.. its alot harder to code pc then console with all those different hardware. therefore i understand why they want to release console first and get the $$$ asap. however, they better give pc game a 'PC interface" not some crappy console port. i buy few console port from steam over last xmas.. none of em is unplayable for me due to console UI just dont work well with kb/mouse combo.

    I have an issue with companies who think their games are worth $59 or more.

    EVILNODwell.. its alot harder to code pc then console with all those different hardware. therefore i understand why they want to release console first and get the $$$ asap. however, they better give pc game a 'PC interface" not some crappy console port. i buy few console port from steam over last xmas.. none of em is unplayable for me due to console UI just dont work well with kb/mouse combo.

    Game engines are designed, built and tested on PC hardware. The developers just decide what code path to use, DX9, DX10 or DX11. It is harder for them to work with consoles since aside from the XBOX and its ancient architecture, the PS3 is very different. Consoles are just being targeted since they are perceived as being more secure against pirating and it is easier to get your money up front from snot nosed brats who don't know any better compared to generally tech savvy PC users.

    Sorry Square Enix, prepare to be educated on how an FPS should be made by Crytek. Crysis 1/2 > DX 2/3

    Effing Steam had the release date as "Feb 2011" for a long time, even after there were talks of "April 2011". Then when February came along, it went to just "2011".

    Bleach. I am so torn. I loved the games in the past, but a game written to be shackled to its Consoles design is far less than it could be. Wonder how many quick time events it'll have.

    I might just have to wait and see if its even worth dropping money on. I don't own a PC just so I can play a console game!
