Deus Fortress interview
3:56 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Mods Outpost recently posted an interview with Chris Fnord (EternalSpark) of Deus Ex Fortress. DXF, an upcoming mod for Deus Ex, will be based on the very popular Team Fortress mod for Unreal Tournament. DXF has a higher goal then TF, to go beyond and make something much greater. Here is a snippet of the interview:


    spyro: Tell us a bit about Deus Ex Fortress.



    EternalSpark: Deus Fortress is the newest in the long line of unofficial TF mods out there, which seem to pop up a lot lately :). Deus Fortress (or DXF, or Deus Ex Fortress, whatever ;) ), unlike some unofficial TF mods, will improve and add to what is Team Fortress, using all the goodies in Deus Ex. For example, every time you play, a class can be played differently, due to the player's choice in choosing augmentations (super-human modifications to the body, allowing for cloak, targeting aid, increased speed, etc.) and weapon loadout (choose the allocation between 2 types of ammo). DXF has an interesting story whose game modes are focus around -- no mere flags to capture this time! The motto of DXF is "beyond TF and Beyond DX" -- some people might consider this an impossible goal, but I consider it the natural marriage of Deus Ex and Team Fortress.



The DXF mod will depend heavily upon the multiplayer patch that was recently posted by Ion Storm. Now that it is available for PC users, things are starting to heat up in the mod community, new mods like DXF are appearing left and right. Macintosh users are still waiting for an update from Westlake Interactive for more information about a Macintosh version.
