Welcome to my Deus Ex newsletter, December edition, 2013. The last newsletter of 2013 is the seventh newsletter overall, which means this has been going on for over half a year now, I’d like to thank those of the Deus Ex community that have thrown links, images and heads ups along the way, as well as those that have promoted the newsletter, cheers! I’d also like to quickly wish you guys a happy Christmas/holiday season.  If you would like to have your work featured, or if you have anything to add, please get in contact with me. You can comment here, catch me on steam (chinesedemocracy677), or email me at chindem@live.com.

So here’s what has been going on in the Deus Ex world in the last thirty days…


Deus Ex: Revision release date runs into next year


Recently it has become apparent that the updates for Deus Ex: Revision were becoming somewhat sparse, and so it comes as no surprise when Caustic Creative, the team behind Deus Ex: Revision, announced that the new release date target will now run into the next year, 2014. However what is surprising is that we are talking barely into 2014 as the new target date is a very close-by “last half of January”. To coincide with the mod’s release, the team are planning to release the official OST (original soundtrack) album , Caustic Creative are even considering producing a limited run of physical disc copies too. Below are the latest screenshots of areas from the Ocean Lab environment.

Hatchet mod Weapon updates


Weapons are very much the flavour of the month for Hatchet this month. Lots of new meshes have been completed, below is a video with commentary which shows off the Assault Rifle along with the “shoot down sight” mechanic and the reloading animation which I think looks great 🙂

My Latest work

I‘ve been working on two maps recently, DXMP_Mini_Dust_v2 and DXMP_Pool_v3 (shots below). I expect to have the prefinal version of DXMP_Pool_v3 ready for release in early December, also expect the prefinal of an older map,  DXMP_Amon,  soon after.
