Hello all!

Production on Revision 1.0 is finished. Some of you are wondering why we aren’t shipping yet. We’re addressing that today.

A while back we started incorporating tech into Revision that was a step beyond what anyone had ever done with this game. We implemented engine-level bug fixes and tweaks for the game’s rendering system, such as allowing decals (e.g. bullet holes) to appear in mirrors, ensuring footstep sounds occurred correctly, and increasing the limits for BSP geometry to ensure that our environments could be more detailed and more stable. We started using portions of what has been named the Revision Framework (so named because we led to its creation, not because it is exclusive to the inner workings of our project), a piece of tech that makes it relatively easy to expand on the game’s content and systems. We are quietly working on RF, intending for it to be released to the DX modding community.

Concerning the game's content, we have tied in continuity threads to the official entries in the franchise in the form of emails, logos, and other references. We also discovered some potential copyright problems in both our in-game and promotional graphics; we’ve been very busy reworking things to make sure those don’t become troublesome later on.

All of this lead us to feel extremely cautious- we want to ensure that when we release, there are no potential land mines waiting for us. So we approached Square Enix with the intent of making sure that everything we had planned was going to be fine. They’ve been very helpful and supportive; the processes has gone on longer than anyone anticipated, and we're taking advantage of the time to implement little fixes and bits of polish that were otherwise slated for the 1.1 update. On the one hand, we would love to get Revision out the door ASAP. On the other, we’re committed to making sure that we can release it and maintain it in the best possible way, and with as few stumbles as possible.

Thank you for your continuing support and patience. We almost have everything in place. And the satellites are ours when we need them.

Hey, really excited about the mod and very eager to play it. I was wondering if it might be possible to give the braying mob a little something in the mean time? I love the few previews you have for the soundtrack so how about a full release of the new music to help get people even more excited about the release? I realise you're likely wanting to achieve the maximum impact the mod can on release and letting us hear the whole soundtrack in advance might diminish this, but I can dream.

Either way thanks for the tremendous hard work and all the best with the current issues and here's to a speedy and favourable resolution. I've never followed a mod before but I've also never been so excited to give my favourite ever game another play through. Cheers.

Deus Ex has had a console port for over a decade. I have the PS2 copy on disc. If there's a "coming soon", then they're probably just prepping it for digital download like a lot of old games. Especially at that price? There's no way there's been any significant overhaul.

As an aside, the PS2 copy, while janked to hell in many respects, has a pretty cool opening sequence since they reanimated it for the port.

Rebooting Deus Ex to butcher it, what a pity. :/

I've enjoyed Square's take on the DX formula - and I believe I recall Warren Spector saying he'd like to see the original DX rebooted with all the modern amenities (whether or not he was being slightly facetious I could not tell).

I am looking very much forward to Mankind Divided - but I hope that Square's vision does extend toward the timeline of the first game.

For ***** and giggles - I'd also love to see a DX game set pre-augmentation and centered more around the story of the Illuminati - possibly set in the late eighties/early nineties and focusing more on the detective/stealth elements in the series.

I'd also love to see a Revision style port of Invisible War to the original DX engine. It'll never happen but one can dream...

marvel at how a mod for a 15 year old game gets hundreds of comments and/or views per day.

more evidence that this was one of the best pc games ever made.

Do we need any more evidence? It's a fact by now.
