Its Deus Ex's 10th birthday! Thats like 60 in human years, so here is a simple list of mods you guys should look at for Deus Ex.

Posted by on

Happy birthday too you, happy birthday too you, happy birthday Deus Ex the best game of our generation that is a perfect mix of RPG and FPS, happy birthday too you. 10 cheers for our birthday boy!

HIP HIP!!

Birthday Surprise

Ok you get it now, Deus Ex is now 10 years old and its still one of the best PC games ever made. I bet right now someone out there who is reading this is re-installing it. That is what normally happens when you think of good old Deus Ex, the memories come back, wearing sunglass at night time, sneaking around, stealing stuff. Oh boy.

Dialog In-game

But age is something that can sometimes cripple games, and in the case of Deus Ex it is still going strong save a few nagging errors due to modern day hardware. So to help with the inevitable re-installation of your and my favorite game here is a list of recommend mods in no real particular order.

Custom Launcher

Coding.hanfling.de
This is a much needed fix for the game, if you are like me and have more then one CPU slugging it out in your PC this will fix the game so your not running it 4 times faster then it should be. Simple yet it works.

Modern Day Graphical Updates

In DX9 and DX10 flavors
You may have your great PC yet Deus Ex will still look like giant cubes flying towards you, oh my how you have aged Deus Ex. Not to fear there are some great fixes out there that are not really made for Deus Ex but for Unreal Tournament that will work fine for both.

Multiplayer Bots

Moddb.com
Who needs friends right? Since I have never personally played Deus Ex for the multiplayer I am sure there are a few of you in the same boat as me, bots seem like a good way to play considering finding a live match nowadays might be hard to do.

Mods

Hell if you have played Deus Ex to death like some of us might have already, it could be time to look at Total Conversions and Mods. Here are a few I think are well worth your time.

The Nameless Mod Moddb.com
Do you like fun? You should play this TC at leased once in your life it was good enough to grab the Best Singleplayer Mod of 2009 as chosen by the ModDB staff and 8th place in the MOTY award as chosen by our community. If you need to read more check out my preview.

Hardcore DX Moddb.com
The name implies it all, a user created hardcore modification for the vanilla Deus Ex that should make the game that much harder.

Redsun 2020 Moddb.com
A new singleplayer experience that follows the trend set by the original with multiple ways of completing objectives.

These where just a few of the many mods out there but it should get you started on Deus Ex again. You can also have a look at this thread made over at the Offtopic Production forum which will give you guys a few more user made experiences to help celebrate this day.

Happy gaming!

Nah, from what i've seen, they've learned from the faults of IW.
The trailer looks very promissing.
Nevertheless, happy birthday DX.
(Hoping for HDTP release before HumanRevolution ;) )

I'm not sure about that. They talked about how to "put on blinders" to not be distracted by the long time fans. Furthermore they talk about "rebooting" the franchise and they take an incredible strong stance on action (see cover system and mostly only aggressive implants). This all sounds 90% like failure instead of sticking true to Deus-Ex type of game mechanics as for example TNM did.

Hm, i don't (want to) see it this negatively.
We will have to wait till they come over with some more details.
A change in the way the augmentations work seems pretty logical to me,
cause Adam is augmented in the oldschool way, not like Nano-JC.
The invisibility augmentation that was visible ( ;) ) in the trailer is a sneaky perk, and i am pretty sure that some others will follow.
The best thing about DX was the atmosphere and story.
If they get this ported into HR and the "Reboot" and changes fit into the context of the DX universe, it will be a sure blockbuster.

At the same time, this is quite depressing: no game during the last ten years managed to be as great as DX... :(

Clearly an old and unfunny one. JC wears sunglasses at all times to hide his augmented vision, and so he told Navarro when she properly remarked: "Don't tell me you are going to wear those sunglasses during a night operation". JC's reply was "My vision is augmented". If only id get a cookie for hearing this joke... I would be ******* obese by now.

Im afraid that the new deus ex will suck, its the typical sort of thing to happen to old games..look at xcom..its being made from a turn based tactical game to a FPS..what a load of crap..and although fallout 3 was a pretty decent game..its nothing compared to fallout 2..new games these days are only about graphics nothing else..its sad :<

With the exception of Mass Effect 1&2

Soonish. The last bits that need to be done are all being sorted by one guy who is busy with 'Real-Life' anyway. I think the last i heard, there is only a few more Weapons to be implimented. Most of the animation is done and textures are done. Revision should be close to a new update too.
And the New Vision Final should be close to a finish. I haven't heard anything from the Shifter Mod.

That's not an opinion, it's a statement, and it's not true. Anyways, it's obvious you're doing it intentionally. And you seem not to know what ragequit means, anyway.

I just purchased Deus Ex on steam for like 2,50€ and Im very excited about playing the game and its mods, especially TNM. Im a big fan of Vampire:The Masquerade - Bloodlines and I expect it to be at least just as fascinating as that.
