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 :)

Oh boy, I was not expecting beta testing. Maybe public beta release would be better, no?

No. The "public beta" is often synonymous with "demo", and that is absolutely not what this is (and it usually results in a lot of people not telling us anything useful). We're using this closed test to quickly gather concentrated feedback and polish things up a little bit more before full release. :)

A beta is needed, first to get technical feedback on the entire mod now that it's all put together, that's never been done before. The OceanLab and Area51 maps haven't even been bug tested before. We also need feedback from a design perspective, is it too easy too hard, that sort of thing.

Secondly, we could really use the time while it's under testing to do minor fixes and polishes and talk with Square Enix about legal stuff (we didn't want to do that before when we didn't know how much was left).

What kind of legal stuff are we talking about here? Just permission to release it?

They don't need permission from Square Enix to release it, because they made it with the released official SDK, and that lets you make your own levels as well as redo the original levels, so long as they're distributed non commercially and you give the publishers all the rights to do whatever they want with what you created. I think it's going to be some sort of tie in.

We already have permission, but you'll see when we release.
