I’m shocked that this mod went under everyone’s radar . And that’s because 2027 features amazing graphics – well, for an Unreal 1 Engine game – and is the effort of a small Russian team to actually offer a true prequel to one of the best PC games ever. Oh, and contrary to pretty much all promising mods, this actually got released some days ago, so go get it while you still can.
According to the development team, the story is flexible, nonlinear, and allows much wider exploration than before. The final outcone depends entirely on you and your actions and the solutions to any challenge depend only on your imagination. There are also lots of new weapons and equipment and you will be able to purchase weapons in shops, unlike in the original game. Moreover, you will be able to improve your weaponry in different ways.
Additionally, new skills, perks and augmentations have been added. Weather effects, ranging from a light drizzle to thunderstorms and snowfall, are support and almost all the locations are based on real photos and maps.
Those interested can download it from here. If you are a fan of Deus Ex, you really need to get it.
