Welcome to the May edition of my Deus Ex newsletter. This month sees the one year anniversary of the birth of the newsletter! The Deus Ex news this month sees yet another delay and no new release date for Deus Ex: Revision, Project Tarsus gets back on track after many months with no signs of life and Hatchet mod has a very productive month.

Deus Ex: Revision Release Delayed Yet Again!

Revision_Splash_Full_131b

The long awaited release date for Deus Ex: Revision that was announced last month by Caustic Creative, which stated a release on May 12, 2014, has once again not been met. This time however we have no new release date and so the final release could well be sometime this summer or perhaps fall! Last month’s extended date was said to give the team the chance to release a mod that they are happy with rather then rush something out that will require immediate fixes. Clearly now they have realised that they didn’t give themselves enough time and are now learning not to give definitive release dates until they actually might be able to keep to them.

Semi-final playtests are said to have being going on for the last few weeks and so it’s clear the mod isn’t yet close to final, and I think it’s wise to withhold a release date until they are playtesting a final v1.0 build. Expect more news next month, for now here’s a video entitled “Engineering Revision”.

The latest news from Project Tarsus is that the author is finally able to put down Skyrim and GTA 5 and continue to develop his awesome Deus Ex mod (although admittedly we don’t yet know how far his obsession with Goat Simulator really goes!). We have a number of new screenshots this month as seen below.

My Latest Work

This month I have worked on a number of maps as one last hurrah for Deus Ex multiplayer ahead of Gamespy’s closure on 31st May. I am currently hosting a server that features these maps along with others I have made over the last two years, look for Chinny’s Apocalypse 0 Augs Server.  Three of the four maps below are remakes of classic DXMP maps, screenshots below.
