Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Xbox One Comes With Free Human Revolution for Preorders

Microsoft sweetens the deal.


Everyone who preorders a digital copy of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on Xbox One will receive a free copy of the last game in the series, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, playable through backwards compatibility. The Missing Link DLC is also included with the package, Microsoft announced today.

Human Revolution was only just recently added to the Xbox One's backwards compatibility lineup. It became the first multi-disc game in the program.

While Mankind Divided doesn't come out until August, codes for Human Revolution and The Missing Link will go out 7-10 days after you preorder the game. The codes will be delivered by way of an Xbox Live message.

Microsoft also notes that this offer is only good "for a limited time," though the company did not say when it will expire.

This isn't the first time Microsoft has enticed people to preorder a new game on Xbox One by offering an older one for free. Everyone who preordered Dark Souls III on Xbox One got a free copy of Dark Souls, while Fallout 4 came with Fallout 3 for free.

Mankind Divided was previously expected to launch in February 2016. However, the game was delayed by six months because developer Eidos Montreal refused to compromise on quality.

The game, which runs on Eidos' proprietary Dawn Engine, is in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It takes place in 2029, and continues the story of Adam Jensen from 2011's Human Revolution.
