Deus Ex: Revision mod launches today for free, updates classic experience

The game has been authorized by both Square Enix and Edios Montreal, but it is only a mod that requires the original game to download.

Today, Steam users will be able to get a taste of the new Deus Ex: Revision,  a remake of the original 2000 shooter. Best of all, it’s being released for free on Steam!

Caustic Creative, the developer and publisher of the project, updated the textures and models of the original along with redesigning the game’s levels and adding a brand new soundtrack for fans to enjoy. It is rumored that all the extra effort is the reasoning behind Square Enix and Edios Montreal authorizing Deus Ex: Revision (the companies even had a press release to promote the game).

The project started in 2008 and it’s amazing the project has continued, especially with the approval of Square Enix. 

In order to download the game, you will need to own the original Deus Ex (Revision is technically a mod to the original). However, Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition is a part of Steam’s Stealth Sale for 80% off (an amazing $1.39). 

Deus Ex is set in the year 2052, a year where terrorism and disease are rampant. JC Denton, a nanotech-enhanced agent, discovers these are not natural and are being used in a plot to take over the world. The game follows his adventures as he uses combat, hacking, or stealth to progress.

Edios Montreal is planning to release their own Deus Ex game on February 23 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game, entitled Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, is a direct sequel to Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
