Revision Demo 1.3.1. This release includes dozens of bugfixes and a updates to a few environments, covering locations from the start of the game through...
What is Revision?
Revision is a modification for the 2000 video game Deus Ex, developed by Ion Storm and published by Eidos Interactive (now Square Enix). With this project we redesign the game's environments and reimagine its soundtrack. Many community-made projects fill in detail around the edges by adjusting gameplay mechanics, improving textures and 3D models, or modernizing the game's renderer for greater stability and visual flair. Revision sits in the middle of that proverbial web, radically enhancing the core of the experience with new level design, aesthetic direction and world-building detail.
We are currently gearing up for an early 2014 release.
Q: Will Revision include other mod projects such as HDTP and New Vision?
A: We will be packaging New Vision texture assets with Revision, though we will not be including HDTP at this time. While we aren't altering the game engine, we design our environments to get as much out of it as we can.
Q: What if I want to enjoy the new levels with the original soundtrack?
A: You can! The soundtrack will be optional.
Q: When will the full version of the mod be released?
A: Our release date is currently sometime in early 2014.
Q: How big is the full version going to be?
A: Around 1.5GB to install, the download should be smaller though.
Q: Will the storyline be changed from the original game or will the mod feature new conversations?
A: The storyline will remain the same; we do not add new conversations.
Q: The visual quality of the screenshots looks different from the normal game. What mods are you using to achieve that?
A: We are using Deus Ex: New Vision and Project HDTP in our screenshots.
Q: What mods will Revision be compatible with?
A: Revision is compatible with HDTP, New Vision, Shifter (via installer option) and most other DeusEx.u mods. Revision is not compatible with mods that use non-vanilla maps, like TNM, Redsun 2020 or ZODIAC, as it will not overlap with the content of these projects.
Good day my fellow chaps,
I'm C.C., alias Eye.sys, and I'm Caustic Creative's honoured 2D graphics designer.
Recently, my colleagues have been releasing some of my work on datavault graphics, and I want to take the opportunity to thank you for all your valuable comments and feedback. It is immensely helping the whole team to work better towards the realization of something we really want you to enjoy.
Thank you, guys, thank you. Just keep speaking up and let your voice be heard! You can be sure we are listening.
Now to more technical stuff.
As anticipated by my fellow mate Jerion in the previous entry, Caustic Creative has been in the process of resurrecting Revision's website, to offer you a helpful and essential reference point for all the information you might need about the upcoming mod.
We hope you enjoy it! You may particularly appreciate the Development Progress page that we've built for you, where some pretty progress bars will help you to track how the team is doing with the work on the different chapters of the game. We will be updating this page regularly so that you can get a better idea of how close we are getting to release of Revision 1.0.
The website is also home to a gallery of screenshots, including several new ones. While we will also be posting news updates on that site, know that ModDB will remain the center of our social activity so we can keep in touch with all of you.
As always, we appreciate your patience, and we're working hard to finally bring to you a remarkable Revision 1.0, as soon as possible.
