Description

The Nameless Mod is an unofficial add-on for Deus Ex which is available on DVD or as freeware download. It adds a single-player campaign which is completely independent from the original story. It is set in "Forum City" which basically is a physical manifestation of a Deus Ex fan forum. The characters are self-aware avatars and various in-game rules are based on this concept, e.g. the moderators are invincible. The player takes the role of Treskon who is a former reputable forums member and was called back to investigate the disappearance of the moderator Deus Diablo. In the tradition of the main game he has to uncover many conspiracies before he can reach his goal...

This add-on incorporates a lot of the main features of Deus Ex, most notably an open level design and several approaches to all objectives. It also continues the tradition that the characters react to the player's previous choices, e.g. if he kills or numbs a boss character - or even if he overcomes the boss by stealth. The storyline splits after the introduction level when the player has to choose between two factions. Both variants feature a largely different story with other obstacles, objectives and sometimes different levels. Additionally there are various optional side quests, most notably one involving two competing cults.

There are also several gameplay differences to the basic gameplay: the swimming skill is replaced with fist fighting, there are several new weapons, e.g. a rice cannon which inflates the enemy, augmentation canisters can be used to upgrade augs, a more detailed difficulty selection, half-automatic security cameras which only sound the alarm if monitored and several other smaller changes.
