It’s becoming the norm these days for publishers to promote their games through social networking and Sqaure are the latest publisher to join in.
According to Square, there are ninety exclusive updates to be unlocked as they bribe their fanbase to help spread the word about the next Deus Ex. Updates that will appear on Facebook include new videos, behind-the-scenes footage, and other artwork.
“Deus Ex has one of the most passionate, vocal and dedicated communities in all of video games, so offering a program that rewards that loyalty — even before the game is released — is a great way for us to give something back,” said Kyle Stallock, Community Manager, Eidos-Montreal. “The Facebook community now has significant control over the release schedule for some of our favorite assets. We have a ton of surprises and unlockables planned, so fans should invite their friends to ‘Like’ the page and start collecting these rewards.”
The updates start from today, so if you can be bothered to use Facebook and the navigational nightmare that it’s become, you know what to do.
