7 comments by Jerion on Apr 2nd, 2015

A lot has happened since December and we have exciting news. We have two new additions to our team, a new programmer and a new 3D artist.

Our new programmer Hanfling joined us late last year to fix bugs in native Deus Ex code. However, this has evolved into the creation of a full featured Deus Ex content creation framework called the Revision Framework. Its roadmap includes support for features found in all current game engines such as terrain, static meshes, deferred lighting and fancy materials to push Deus Ex: Revision visuals to a whole new level.

Cyrus -- the other new guy -- will pitch in to make use of these features, and create tons of static meshes, while adding content that Project HDTP didn’t cover. Right now he is working on:

Gunther and Anna

To make full use of the scheduled engine features we need to remake or at least update most of the content already created. However the whole team is excited to make use of the new features and make Deus Ex: Revision the best Deus Ex incarnation of all time.

Edit: As you many have realized, this was an April Fool's post; we won't delay Revision for any new features.However most of the post is correct, Hanfling is working with us to make the Revision Framework and the long term goals are to include the mentioned features, but that would be years into the future. Currently it's mostly a WIP framework for mods to easily and properly integrate into the game without having to replace DeusEx.u. It will also improve the editing workflow with a new set of tools. It will not be used in the 1.0 release and we'll only lift a few features from it, such as a fix for incorrect footstep sounds and UI scaling.

We also do have a new 3D artist named Cyrus that joined us a few weeks ago, and he is currently working on replacing some vanilla models, however certainly nothing as indicated by the picture above.
We are very close to release right now and beta testers will be contacted shortly. More info soon to come :)

I sense that Revision will come out no longer than within 2 weeks.

I remember I have been following this mod in college, which was back in 2005, I played the first few chapters and loved it, and I was hoping it would get done after I graduate, since then I lost interest in PC gaming, but I never lost track of this game. It's been 10 years, I am now married, have a kid, a career, a house and all that other crap associated with it.

During all this time, so many mixed feeling, I remember there were almost a year with no progress, I lost hope many times, but eventually I seem the progress bar move bit by bit.

I cannot believe this is finally being done. SO EXCITED.

Didn't the mod start in late 2007 or so?

Also I got both the very first version of Revision (the one where you had to replace all the Deus Ex files with the ones in Revision) and the v1.2 demo, and to put it simply, it's quite astonishing how the mod has moved from being a rough but promising remake to being an incredibly polished looking mod.

2007? I thought it is earlier than that, didn't the mod started only a few years after game release?

Doesn't matter, it's been a while?

When I started Deus Exing in 2004, I remember HDTP (or a similar project) having begun its development on the friggin' Ion Storm forums (or maybe it was DXEditing - in any case there were very few screenshots of some new item renders) and some other people were talking about revamping the levels themselves as a separate project.

In any case, the spirits of those two projects have existed at least for as long as I've been a major Deus Ex fan, and this year they've come together and soon will see a release (even with HDTP not being complete w.r.t. characters). The whole prospect is just damn exciting for me. :]

If I'm not mistaken, during installation you have an option either to play deus ex with the new tracks or old ones. I suggest the new tracks - trust me.

Drewie is actually a bit mistaken here. Revision includes a brand new complete soundtrack in addition to the original. You can switch between the two at any time from the in-game sound settings menu.
