Deus Ex Co-Op Mod Released
8:58 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A beta of a new mod has been released for Deus Ex called the Co-Op Project. Its aim is to allow players to play through the game cooperatively, sharing both the enemies and the power-ups. Co-op is a rare feature for a retail title because of the complexity involved in making sure two or more players can get through a title in a fashion similar to a lone gamer. With a complex title like Deus Ex, you can imagine how much more of a balancing act that is compared to a standard shooter.

While the development team isn't complete, this first beta shows that they are certainly making progress. IMG recently got in touch with the lead on the project, who assured us they were already working with Mac fans to get the mod up and running with the Mac version of Deus Ex as well. When asked about any PC-specific code, he responded:

So far, all the code is in UScript, which Epic claim is portable across all platforms the Unreal engine supports. I'm optimistic that coop Deus Ex will run on the Mac sooner or later :)
We'll keep you posted as more information on the modification is released.
