Deus Ex: Human Revolution gets PAL-exclusive collector's edition [Update]

[Update: 1:40pm] A Square Enix rep tells Shacknews that Deus Ex: Human Revolution will only get a standard and Augmented edition release in North America. In order to get all of the in-game content offered in the Collector's Edition, North American users would have to pre-order the game twice, as multiple retailers are offering different pieces of content. [Original Story] It looks like Europe is going to get some exclusive Deus Ex: Human Revolution love, with Square Enix revealing an "extremely limited" collector's edition for the region. Announced today on the official Square Enix Europe blog, the numbered "Collector's Edition" will join the standard and Augmented editions of the game--both of which will be available worldwide. The newly revealed edition comes bundled with a number of exclusives, including an Adam Jensen figurine, handful of exclusive in-game weapons and items, and (most importantly), a mission featuring "one of the original Deus Ex characters." Unfortunately, this particular edition is not planned to release Stateside. Shacknews has contacted Square Enix to find out if Eidos Montreal's first development effort will get similar treatment in the form of a North American special edition, but has yet to hear back at the time of publishing.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution gets fancy in the PAL region.

The Deus Ex: Human Revolution "Collector's Edition" includes the following bonuses:
  • Highly collectable Adam Jensen action figurine designed by Play Arts Kai
  • Explosive Mission Pack: An entirely new mission with a special cameo appearance from one of the original DEUS EX characters
  • Exclusive in-game weapons: Automatic Unlocking Device, M-28 Utility Remote-Detonated Explosive Device (UR-DED), Linebacker G-87 multiple shot grenade launcher, Huntsman Silverback Double-Barrel Shotgun, SERSR Longsword Whisperhead silenced sniper rifle
  • 10,000 extra credits to buy or upgrade weapons
  • DVD featuring a 44-minute “making of” special, 30-minute game soundtrack, motion-comic (adapted from DC Comics’ official series), E3 trailer and animated storyboard
  • 40-page art book
A price for the set was not revealed. Deus Ex: Human Revolution alunches on August 23 in North America, August 25 in Australia and New Zealand, and August 26 in select European countries. The game is being developed by Eidos Montreal for the PS3 and Xbox 360, while the PC version is in development at Nixxes. The only hope North American gamers have now is to be vocal about their desire for more Deus Ex retail options, as Eidos Montreal has proven to be focused on its community's wants and desires.
