Celebrating Deus Ex's 15th anniversary

15 years ago, the very first Deus Ex game was released on PC. To this day, it is still considered a classic and one of the most influential titles ever created.



To celebrate this anniversary, we have prepared a special four-episode documentary telling the genesis of the series, from the original Deus Ex to the upcoming Mankind Divided. Check out the first episode below, with original game creators Warren Spector, Chris Norden and Sheldon Pacotti!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSOuYmO8ncc
We’re also giving you the opportunity to choose the contents of the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Collector's Edition. The choice is yours - items like an Adam Jensen replica statue, a mini artbook, a replica weapon and a pin set (among others), are up for selection until July 3. Vote here!



Finally, Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal have partnered with GameChanger Charity, a non-profit focused on improving the lives of children suffering from life-threatening diseases. It makes an impact by providing direct services in hospitals, delivering video game gifts & supporting families financially.

We’ll provide donors with a free PC digital copy of Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut for every contribution made to the charity in excess of $1 – and they will have the ability to decide how their funds will be used by GameChanger. To donate, please visit: http://dx15.org.

Deus Ex Mankind Divided announced!

About This Game

The year is 2052 and the world is a dangerous and chaotic place. Terrorists operate openly - killing thousands; drugs, disease and pollution kill even more. The world's economies are close to collapse and the gap between the insanely wealthy and the desperately poor grows ever wider. Worst of all, an ages old conspiracy bent on world domination has decided that the time is right to emerge from the shadows and take control.

Key Features:


  • Real role-playing from an immersive 3D, first-person perspective. The game includes action, character interaction and problem solving.
  • Realistic, recognizable locations. Many of the locations are built from actual blueprints of real places set in a near future scenario.
  • A game filled with people rather than monsters. This creates empathy with the game characters and enhances the realism of the game world.
  • Rich character development systems: Skills, augmentations, weapon and item selections and multiple solutions to problems ensure that no two players will end the game with similar characters.
  • Multiple solutions to problems and character development choices ensure a varied game experience. Talk, fight or use skills to get past obstacles as the game adapts itself to your style of play.
  • Strong storyline: Built on "real" conspiracy theories, current events and expected advancements in technology. If it's in the game, someone, somewhere believes

Went to the ladies restroom for fun,
A lady caught me and told she would report me,
I thought she was kidding,
But she was not, she reported.
Had to hear an earful from my boss Manderly,
infront of my brother,
was embarassed of myself :(
Would not go to the ladies restroom again...

If Steam was Deus Ex...

- I could write this review through the front door, guns blazing.
- I could write this review descending through the rafters of the roof.
- I could write this review while snaking around through air vents.
- I could write this review while picking off targets at a distance.
- I could write this review while slinking around, performing non-lethal takedowns.
- I could write this review while wiring the security systems to turn on my enemies.

I had to go this far back in time to get a game that really understands what choice, flexibility, and options are in a video game... what a shame.

Where it all began. Can't believe that this was released on Windows 2000, 15 years ago! Still to this day we are gifted with excellent mods for it, currently Caustic Creative are developing a wonderful overhaul mod named Deus Ex: Revision (be sure to check it out!).

This was one of my first childhood games, still to this day I can remember certain stealth patterns to the levels. Really good to revisit from time to time and like I mentioned, mods really revitalise an old classic. JC Denton the badass! The question is, which ending did you choose?

For those wondering, the storyline of the Deus Ex series is as follows;

2027 – Human Revolution
2029 – Mankind Divided
2052 – Deus Ex
2072 – Invisible War

So the events of the original come AFTER the events of Human Revolution.

One of the greatest games of all time. Definitely worth a new playthrough with mods in 20XX.

Intelligent & challenging // Recommended for those looking to experience a classic

+ Absolutely tons of customization options; with such variety, few people can really boast that they have played the same game twice
+ Narrative is both mature and showcases an impressive amount of depth
+ Augmentations, also, offer great freedom in character tailoring; some are arguably more useful than others, but overall the sense of freedom inherent in this mechanic does well to complement the same freedom found throughout the rest of the game
+ Modular damage; limbs and body parts experience damage separately, and this translates competently to gameplay (eg. taking too much damage in a leg will result in poor movement)
+ The player is offered spectacular freedom in how level objectives and advancement are to be handled
+ Level design is applaudable; everything flows well from one area to another, and layouts are generally sensible
+ Soundtrack is absolutely fantastic; sets the mood, doesn't necessarily distract, and stays with you when the game is off
+ Dialogue and writing is absolutely superb; this is easily one of the better aspects of the game, and it presents well even today

- Speed/compatibility issue; this may not affect everyone, but there is an issue with compatibility on modern machines which causes overall gamespeed to increase drastically (there is a workaround, but it's something of a hassle to fix)
- Visuals and animations really show their age; these don't hold up well today, but it's not bad enough to detract from the overall experience
- Voice-acting, though it can be quite good, is a mostly underwhelming effort; some voice actors go as far as to be terrible
