The future-centric Deus Ex: Human Revolution is going to get another edition upon release, except this one will be limited to the audience in Europe. Square Enix has previously announced the Deus Ex Augmented Edition for American audiences, and when the two are compared, there is very little difference.
For reasons unknown, the European Collector's Edition will contain the same bonuses we here in America will be getting, with the exception that Europe will be getting an awesome Adam Jensen action figure as part of the package. Deus Ex: Human Revolution fans can begin their collective sigh of frustration now.
The Deus Ex: Human Revolution Collector's Edition will contain:
Highly Explosive Mission Pack: An entirely new mission with a special cameo appearance from one ofthe original Deus Ex.
Exclusive in-game weapons: Automatic Unlocking Device, M-28 Utility Remote-DetonatedExplosive Device (UR-DED), Linebacker G-87 multiple shot grenade launcher, HuntsmanSilverback Double Barrel Shotgun, Longsword Whisperhead silenced sniper rifle.
10,000 extra credits to buy or upgrade weapons
DVD featuring a 44-minute “making of” special, 30-minute game soundtrack, motion-comic (adapted from DC Comics' official series)
40-page art book

As you can see, there is nothing really different from the pre-order bonuses that will be present here in the States when the game releases. The only real exception is that European audiences will be able to just buy the Collector's Edition in the store without having to pre-order. That and the action figure, which is enough to make anyone jealous.
Square Enix has started to crank up awareness for their action-RPG. The latest Deus Ex trailer, showcasing the different approaches that can be undertaken on a mission, promises tons of re-playability for fans of the stealth or action genre.
