Deus Ex Coming to GameTap's Free Game Roster Next Week

By Aaron Linde, May 28, 2008 8:00pm PDT Subscription-based PC gaming service GameTap announced today that Ion Storm's shooter-RPG hybrid Deus Ex (PC, PS2) will be available to play free of charge on the platform beginning next week.

Often regarded as one of the most influential shooters ever developed, Deus Ex blended first-person shooter gameplay with a branching, complicated storyline, upgradable stats and skills and extensive character interaction. A sequel, Deus Ex: Invisible War, was released in late 2003.

The title will be playable via the service's free-to-download launcher program, which allows users to browse and download a variety of PC and emulated console games. Those players who don't shell out the $9.95 per month for the "Gold"-level subscription can expect a 15 second video advertisement to air before each play.

In addition to Deus Ex, GameTap also offers Ion Storm's Thief: Deadly Shadows and Doublefine's Psychonauts among some 120 other titles in its free game roster.

  • You know how Hollywood remakes old movies from time to time (all the time)? I wish someone would do that with Deus Ex. As much as we excoriate people for making the same old thing, sometimes that's what we want. DX2 was too different (and teh suck). I'd swoon for Deus Ex 1 with better graphics. All the options and gameplay elements and levels would have to be there, just looking newer.

    Current Gen graphics are really time intensive, and a reason It hink that newer games are a bit shorter. I wouldn't mind seeing GFX that were not absolutely bleeding edge if it made a full length remake a possibility.

    Expanding a level or two (city levels mainly) might be nice too, but now I'm really getting into wish fulfillment territory.
