Does a purchase from here give the "Explosive mission pack"? On the official deus ex website (http://www.deusex.com/preorder) it says so, but on all the other websites it says you only get the "Explosive mission pack" when you order from GameStop
the augmented edition will include the -the game -making of -sound track -artbook -explosive mission pack

Please note that the pack does not contains Tactical enhancement pack.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????? uh now im confused, it shows that it does include the tactical enhancement pack with the explosive mission pack. lol
The product descriptions all basically say the same, except: Augmented Edition - 10k Extra Credits Collector's Edition - "Collectible Adam Jenson figurine" & "Exclusive box-design (numbered)" Limited Edition - "An entirely new extra mission" (and bugger all else that the other's don't have) where the others have "Exclusive mission" (WTF is the difference?)
So it seems the Limited Edition is pointless, the collector's one is god knows how much more just for the figurine and box art (loffle) and the Augemented ya get everything else, but 10k extra credits?
I can't see any other differences, and frankly atm my brain is baffled by all the different versions that mostly look the same, as well as the different bonuses in other shops too (game says the Comic is exclusive pre-order bonus!!11). /sigh, can someone please confirm what we're getting in each, and what the ACTUAL differences are? Because this is silly and it really pisses me off when places don't correctly tell you what you're buying.
I just came to look when its out and everything and noticed there are 3 versions of this and I'm a bit confused too, seems very silly and I noticed something about a new extra mission and weapon, hate how they have all these extra content these days, noticed quite alot of games offering extra downloadable content just days after the games been released, looks like with this they aren't even waiting and have it ready all ready, if its part of the game and something they've been making with it they should release it with the game, fair enough if its something a few months after that they've been working on, especially multiplayer with extra levels, but not to be making it along side the game then save it back and cut it out the game to release moments after to get extra money.
Anyway rant over :p
The collectors edition seems your paying all the money for the figure, which are the best out of the augmented and limited edition? seems like the limited comes with what the augmented has plus extras?
Does anyone know what all these credits to buy extra weapons and things are? Does it mean they are going to charge us real money to buy and download weapons to use in game? If thats the case it doesn't seem like the new deus ex is going down a very good path at all...
From what I've been able to gather, the Augmented edition is the best to go for as it includes a hell of a lot of things the others don't even state. GAME have only recently updated theirs with the comic added, as last time I looked it was not on it. I'd reccomend the Augmented edition, that's what I'm going for as you get a lot of in-game items and compared to the others including the price it is the best offer by far!
The 'credits' are in-game currency. It is used to buy items, upgrades, weapons, etc. No doubt in the future they will release weapon packs or something along those lines, so yeah, they'll charge you real money ;) Most game dev companies are doing this now, seems to be the norm for this generation of gaming.
Just got my box today. Happy to say the info was correct! (And I saved £19 with the pre-order guarantee) :)
Have only installed and not played it yet, but on the back of the box we have:
"Tong's Rescue Mission" 44 min Making of Bonus DVD, with Motion Comic, Trailers, Storyboard and Soundtrack. 40 Page Art book (Just pure art, some concept) 10k Extra Credits Huntsman Double-Barrelled Shotgun Longsword Silenced Sniper Rifle Linebacker Grenade Launcher Automatic unlocking Device Remote Detonated Explosive.
Upon registering the DLC code in Steam after installation, this translates to: "Pre-Order Pack 1: Explosive Mission Pack" "Pre-Order Pack 2: Tactical Enhancement Pack"
Therefore thats everything isn't it? As in ALL the bonus DLC of which only parts were offered at other stores and editions? Happy it all looks correct anyways. Going to get playing it soon. Came in a lovely box too, and at a fantastic price. I think the only thing you get in the other editions would be the silly tiny figurine and slightly different box, but lose out on everything else. Thanks Amazon! :)
