Welcome to the June edition of my Deus Ex newsletter. The Deus Ex news this month sees no news at all for the Deus Ex: Revision, which still has no new release date, S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mod returns from the dead, Hatchet Mod goes full steam ahead and the Gamespy servers closure is delayed.

 Gamespy closure now taking place some time in June!

The closure of the Gamespy  masterserver which will bring about the end to many classic (and not so classic) multiplayer games, including our beloved Deus Ex, has been delayed from 31st May to some time in June (possibly the end of the month). The community however refuse to call it a day and have come up with a number of “fixes” which allow the player to continue playing in online servers, expect to see these in next month’s newsletter.

No Deus Ex: Revision updates this month!

Revision_Splash_Full_131b

The long awaited release for Deus Ex: Revision continues this month with no updates whatsoever. The last firm release we had was from two months back slating a date of  May 12, 2014. This release date was since canned last month for a potential summer or fall release. For the first time in a long time, there are zero updates on the mod this month, and so speculation continues on the state of affairs at Caustic Creative. Expect some news next month after this lengthy silence!

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mod lives on

This month sees the return of Lurker’s S.T.A.L.K.E.R. mod after about a year of inactivity. We have just the one screenshot to show off this month, which shows the front of the Stalker Shop. This early shot teases the Stalker Shop which is said to work like bars in the original Stalker games. There is said to be a barman or shopkeeper inside, and the player will be able to talk to the shopkeeper, trade weapons, items and goods. Let’s hope we don’t have to wait another year for the next update!
