Collector's Edition added to 'Deus Ex' European versions

Europeans will be able to get their mitts on a special Collector's Edition of Deus Ex: Human Revolution come August 26.

The bulky boxed edition comes packed with an action figure, behind-the-scenes DVD, art book, extra mission, and in-game bonus items.

Australasians will be able to pick up the pack a day earlier due to the game's August 25 regional release.

The Collector's Edition is a step up from the game's previously announced (and internationally available) Augmented Edition, which drops the figurine and makes extra in-game content a retailer-specific pre-order incentive.

No price guidance was given by publisher Square Enix in the announcement, but the Augmented Edition is pushing €80/£60/$120 AUD and Play Arts Kai's figurines generally cost around $50 or €40 on their own.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is third in the cyberpunk Deus Ex series. The 360, PS3 and PC game allows players to complete missions using stealth, combat, technology, social skills, or a combiniation of all four.

It's to reach retail a couple of weeks after Madden NFL 12 and ahead of Resistance 3, Rage, and Gears of War 3.
