Deus Ex: Mankind Divided’s Pre-order DLC Can Only be Used Once

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided has been receiving good reviews from gaming websites for across the board. The PC port has had some troubles, but other than that, the game is being received very well critically. However, gamers are annoyed about one aspect of Mankind Divided, being that certain pre-order bonuses for the game can only be used once.

In the Covert Agent Pack, given to anyone who pre-ordered the game or bought the Day One Edition, players got new weapons, skins, and upgrades to use. However, all the consumable bonuses in the pack, this being crafting parts, Praxis Kits, and the like, can only be used in one playthrough. All the bonus weapons and skins though can still be used in multiple playthroughs.

The first red flag of this happened when the Covert Agent Pack was renamed on Steam to the Augmented Covert Agent Consumables Pack. These one-use consumables tie into the major criticism of Mankind Divided, its microtransactions. These transactions include premium booster packs for online gameplay and single player consumables, which is getting Mankind Divided the most flak. Some players are coming to the conclusion that Square Enix are using consumables to create a microtransaction market for Deus Ex.
