Deus Ex: Human Revolution Augmented Edition, Steamworks & PC Support

The revolution may not be televised, but the human revolution will be digitized, as Eidos-Montreal announces plans to digitally distribute Deus Ex: Human Revolution through Steam, adding that the action/RPG prequel will support Steamworks features like auto-updating, Steam Achievements and the Steam Cloud upon its release this August. They also announce that in addition to the standard game, Steam will offer an "augmented edition," which will include a digital art book, a "making of" special, trailers, an animated storyboard of the CGI trailer, a motion graphic novel, the soundtrack, and a free download of the Deus Ex Game of the Year Edition. They say prepurchases are now being accepted, though a glance at the Deus Ex: Human Revolution on Steam Page shows this is premature, but when prepurchases are enabled, they will be at a discount for a limited time: The standard game will be $44.99 USD, and the Augmented Edition will be $53.99 USD. Eidos-Montreal also offers a few documents on PC-specific features: This article describes support for AMD Eyefinity, AMD HD3D technology, and DirectX 11, this tech Q&A discusses those elements in more depth, and this internal Q&A explores the challenges of making the Windows version of Human Revolution live up to the PC roots of the Deus Ex series, in spite of being a multiplatform game. Finally, these screenshots offer a couple of shots from the PC edition and one of the game in Eyefinity mode spread across three monitors.

Steam just says "2011" for the release date. Has anything more specific been given?
Steam seams to take a long time to update their pages with the exact release date even if the information is out there.

Steam did not say Witcher 2 would be out on the 17th till only a week or so ago tho the release date has been known since like Jan.

Ill prolly get this one on Steam being that the physical version has like nothing special in it, unlike Witcher 2.

And because im on a Witcher 2 kick... looks like DX3 will at least properly support 16:10 on launch.
