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 thought the Original CD version would be better. Why Steam?

Aren't they both the same, with Steam only having a modified exe to make it work with the client? And even that can be resolved by using the 1.112fm patch to get a normal exe.

Anyway, I'm willing to test it on my GOG install to see if it is actually worse than the Steam version.

I asked which of the 3 version "I" have access to will work "the best". They both answered Steam so that is the version I'm going to use. I hardly doubt though that any version will not work great if only have access to 1 of them. Regardless if it is the Steam vesion, the GoG version or the sweet-sweet-magical-awesome-beautiful-immaculate orginal CD version(+patches), this is probably going to play great!

I actually tested Revision demo 1.2 with the GOG version and it worked well, so no I don't think you should re buy the game. It should work well enough.

I'm not going to explain, but all I'm saying is that if you are deciding on where to buy the game right now, I'd recommend Steam.

Steam is generally the cheapest option out of those sure, but I was thinking that the Steam and GOG versions are practically the same with only the difference of a modified exe, so there shouldn't be large differences.
