It's the new millennium. Civilization is near collapse. The world economy is in chaos. The middle class no longer exists. Deadly viruses have ravaged the earth's population. Terrorism runs rampant. Out of this maelstrom of violence and suffering an ancient conspiracy bent on world domination emerges from the shadows of legend. The conspirators' greatest strength? No one believes they exist. No one but you. Travel the globe as you develop your skills and build your network of allies. Employ stealth, strategy or action. But trust no one. Even your allies may be more than they seem. Deus Ex is set in a richly simulated world of unparalleled interactivity, engineered to react logically to your every action. But remember, in this world, the decisions and consequences are yours. Deus Ex combines the best elements of role-playing, action, adventure and 1st person shooters in a compelling blend of real world conspiracies, cliffhangers and plot twists.
