Square Enix has confirmed the UK release date of Deus Ex: Human Revolution as 26th August, as whistle-blowing shops predicted it would yesterday.
You can pre-order either a Standard Edition of the game to receive a free Explosive Mission Pack. This features a new mission and cameo from an old Deus Ex character, plus Automatic Uncloaking Device, M-28 Utility Remote-Detonated Exposive Device (UR-DED, cringe) and the Linebacker G-87 grenade launcher.
Or you can pre-order a "highly collectable and strictly limited" Augmented Edition of Deus Ex: Human Revolution (RRP Ł59.99). What's so special about that? In-game credits, 10,000 of them, plus a Huntsman Silverback Double-Barrel Shotgun, SERSR Longsword Whisperhead silenced sniper rifle, the Explosive Mission Pack and the other weapons Standard pre-orders get.
There's more: a bonus DVD with 44-minute Making Of documentary, soundtrack, motion-comic, video, storyboard and 40-page art book (you'll get through that quickly - it's all pictures).
