It?s well known that the Deus Ex team has been busily working away on some project or other for some time now. Well, as it turns out, the team has been producing an add-on pack for the original game that will enable two player co-operative play.
?The first release focuses on the basic mechanics of Deus Ex, like conversations, computers/hacking, datalinks, datacubes and NPCs,? said Mark "Geordie" Welch,leader of the Deus Ex team. ?A save game method is yet to be done, and changing maps does not work. Therefore, we converted the Rydberg Field map, as it is all set in one level, except for a few cinematics/conversations at the intro and outro. Check out the SP version for the full background story to Rydberg Field. We welcome feedback from this release as we move on to beta 2, which will hone game balance and add the save game features required for the full SP storyline to be played Co-op.?
The first beta release is now available for download at the Deus Ex homepage.
