Deus Ex Wiki

Europe is a continent with many locations featured in the Deus Ex series.

Like other regions of the world, Europe in the Deus Ex setting shares many similarities with real-world Europe. However, there are major divergences between the two during the 20th century and beyond. For example, in the Deus Ex setting, the Russian Federation became the Russian Federated States in 2016.


The Illuminati was founded in Europe and has its headquarters based in Paris, France. Many Illuminati members are from Europe and continue to operate there. The foundation of the European Union in the decades following World War II was a landmark achievement, ending seemingly ceaseless internecine violence among European countries, but this new political organism paved the way for the machinations of the Illuminati to seize control of Europe.

In 2035, the continent was secretly taken over by Majestic 12, making them the de facto rulers of Europe. Following the Collapse, the Order Church had set up shop in Europe and has gathered countless Europeans to follow them.


The following countries, cities and locations appeared in various Deus Ex games and books.
