Playtests are ongoing, current partnerships, a new video and more!

Hello all,

Welcome to our April update.

Over the past few weeks, we’ve started up our semi-final playtests. Initial feedback has been excellent, and we will be moving forward with those playtests as we’re ready to do so.

We’ve also been forging partnerships with other community mod creators. To recap: We will be distributing New Vision, HDTP, Shifter, BioMod, improved UI scaling support, the Direct 3D 9 Renderer and a customized version of Kentie’s game launcher with Revision. New Vision and HDTP will be mandatory parts of the installation, although we will have the HDTP character models disabled by default as they are stylized to such an extent that enabling them is a matter of personal taste.

We’ve also had another development in recent weeks, one that has led us to reconsider our release timetable. We’re not quite ready to talk about any specifics, but we will not be releasing on May 12th as previously planned. We realize that the delay is unpleasant for everyone who has been anticipating Revision 1.0, but we’ve had an offer that is too good to pass up, and it means that we can avoid crunching in these next couple weeks. Revision is not canceled by any means, and we still plan to finish production and launch in the near future. More on this as we’re ready to talk about it.

To cap things off this month, we have a new video, in which I talk about my experiences working on the project. Enjoy!

I can't wait to play this - easily my most anticipated game this year (have replayed DXHR, DXIW, SS2, and Vampire Bloodlines waiting to get my DX fix). The new video is excellent - I've watched it 3 times now!!!

Well, it wouldn't be a mod if it didn't had any delays, I guess...

maybe an offer from Eidos, related to planned Deus Ex Universe?
maybe they saw the potential of ReVision and they want it as a bonus content for their game, not to be distributed for free?
(just my conspiracy theory, though)

That sounds so horrible that it might actually happen.

Looking awesome, as always. Take the time you need guys. I am also very interested in this 'offer that is too good to pass up'...hmm what could it be. And as always, a massive thank you for this awesome enhancement of pretty much the best video game ever made.

An offer that you couldn't pass up? Is Revision going to cost money?

No. Too many moving parts and too much bundled content to even consider making it a commercial release at this point. :)

Oh what a shock, one I certainly didn't see coming. No, really. It sounds to me like we won't be seeing this any time soon at all, like Crossfire 2.0, which is a shame but hardly unexpected.

Oh well, I'll check back next May. Good luck guys.

Six months later and still nothing. I guess I wasn't far off from being right after all, going by your latest news update. Another 2+ months right? Sometime in the next "10 weeks"? Come on people, downvote me for speaking my mind, more downvotes! more!

Oh well, it all sounds like it would be great and the new music track is delicious but I'm simply not expecting it out before April/May and even further on. I am curious about one thing though; what happened with all the cloak and dagger stuff from this April update? Something that was "too good to pass up" and "more on this when we're ready to discuss it"? What was all that exactly? Or are you still not ready to discuss it? :D
