Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have announced that the ‘Augment Your Pre-order’ system for upcoming title Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has been cancelled following fan feedback and input.
All of the incentive content will now be available to anyone who pre-orders the game or purchases a Day 1 Edition, with the game now set for a global release on February 23, 2016.
The ‘Augment Your Pre-order’ system was met with a lot of negativity, as it worked in a five-tier structure that would increase incentives when pre-order targets were met. The final target would have seen the game release on the 19th rather than the 23rd.
“Your feedback and input is of the utmost importance to us,” the news post read.
“It’s your loyalty and passion for our franchises that gives us the opportunity to continue providing you with great gaming experiences.”
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is the sequel to 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, and will see Adam Jensen return as the protagonist. The game is set to launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 23, 2016.
