Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has entered the official preload phase earlier today, according to an update on their Steam community page. As of 9AM Pacific this morning, gamers can get started on the 19.9GB download. The game will unpack to 45GB when all is said and done, so slower connections should get started through the weekend.
Gamers still on the sidelines are also in luck because Green Man Gaming is offering a 25% off pre-order incentive to lure in undecided gamers. The game has thus far been well-received, with most critic reviews being generally positive. As of writing, here are the Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Steam key deals at GMG:
To see the full discount you must login at GMG. The discounted prices will reflect before you take the games to checkout. Interestingly, this only applies to the Deluxe Edition, where you'll see a 10% off if you don't log in, and 25% off if you log in (go figure). For the Standard Edition of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, you'll see 25% off no matter if you log in or not.
Picking up the game at GMG before Tuesday's release will also net you the pre-order bonuses offered by Square Enix (given GMG is an authorized retailer after all). In total, these are the current bonuses for the "Day 1" Edition of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided:
- Extra in-game mission (with additional content)
- Three weapon/item packs
- Digital OST sampler (select tracks instead of the full soundtrack)
- Digital comic book, novella and artbook
More details for each of the gears, packs, and bonuses can also be found here at the official site.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will release on August 23, 2016. The game will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC (Steam). For other platform deals, you can also check here.
