Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Augment your Pre-Order

 

Pre order exclusive content has been the bane of many video games for a long time, a method employed by greedy marketing teams and shady individuals to try and take the money of consumers before any critical content can be levelled against their upcoming games.  

We know already how bad some games can be at launch, with Assassin's Creed Unity and Batman: Arkham Knight serving as reminders of why gamers should not trust a company or developer enough to Pre-purchase a title. This is should also mean that we should take any of the allure of Pre-order DLC lightly as these two games did have Pre-oderer DLC and were gaming experiences which were released in a sub-par condition.

Now Eidos-Montreal have taken Pre-Order DLC to an entirely new level of anti-consumerism, with the Pre-order DLC for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided not just being hacked off parts of the game which are being used as a lure for early purchases but also adds more "benefits" as more gamers Pre-order the title, with the highest reward being a release which is 4 days early. 

  Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Augment your Pre-Order

 

This Pre-order DLC scheme not only asks you to spend money on a title which is an unknown quantity but also leaves what kind of DLC you will get in the hands of others, meanings that in order to get all the DLC a consumer would have to recommend that others pre-purchase the game so that they can share in the DLC benefits, which is simply wrong for a developer to force consumers to do.

Worse still is the prospect of getting the game released early, giving pre-order customers the title before anyone else and clearly admiting that the title will be ready on that date and is in fact being held hostage by the developers.   

Below is all the information we have on this DLC program, as is detailed on Deus Ex: Mankind Divided's website.

I hope this doesn't get out of tier one. Pre orders are good for devs but terrible for consumers.Quote

I was going to buy this, not anymore, I do not pre-order, ever. It's not a good habit to do anything of the like, they usually take your money and give you a sub-par game or cut content... just look at it, already a mission has been cut to use as bait to pre-order the game. No and no.

Now, where did I put my my eye-patch, hat and wooden leg again... *Scuffles around*Quote

I preordered, but the collector's edition (can be found as PC Box game on the Square Enix Store).

I'm a sucker for collector's editions (looks at Fallout Anthology and Fallout 4 PIP Boy Edition preorders).Quote
