Deus Ex: Revision is a large-scale re-imagining of the world of Deus Ex, bringing a tightly integrated aesthetic-oriented approach to the original gameplay.
A look at an early concept draft for our NYC Streets Ambient music.

Today I would like to share with you one of our early concept draft tracks: the Hell's Kitchen ambient music. While the finished, in-game form will sound similar, this particular tune is firmly from the Work-In-Progress archive.
We've designed our arrangement around a comprehensive soundtrack comparable in scale to the original, with additional subtle (and not-so-subtle) variations in key places; as the story becomes richer and darker, so too does the music. In broad terms we're aiming to ensure that while we are faithful to the core sound of Deus Ex, we're also bringing the music in a more atmospheric and coherent direction.
We aren't replacing the original material. While Revision will install the new soundtrack alongside the old and default to using it, reverting to the original music is as easy as deleting a particular folder. We know our work might not be to your taste, and that's fine.
For those of you who missed it the first time, here's another track that we've made public: A near-final version of our Wan Chai Market music!
That about does it for this post. Take care, and we'll see you next time.
