Sony Computer Entertainment UK released two new videos of the upcoming stealth action game Thief, showcasing the PS4 version of the game.
Omg, the game is beautiful.
Yeah, I really like it. And I will never understand why people have thrown so much mud at it. Maybe I'm a bit biased because I'm a fan of the series, but I think it gets too little credit.
Huh...well, I was just gonna say...to me, that game lacks in visual fidelity. Not sure what it is, but I'd think it's the lighting engine which is outdated. The game will be great, I supposed, but it looks like a last gen game thrown at next gen and just added more - more polys and more res. But doesn't really look improved in detail or refined. So, it's not just me, then?
I'm not even a fan of the series and I love it. The art style...There's just something about it that I love. Can't put my finger on it but all I know is it is beautiful. Sad thing is people call it a Dishonored "Rip off"...They don't know the original thief came out in 1998 -.-
I'm not talking about art style but simply the lighting. This doesn't seem to be HDR by any means which is strange since it plays so much with darkness and shadows. What's the engine? UE3? It sure isn't Dark Engine. Well, if that's the case, I wouldn't be surprised. What surprises me is, that SE usually uses a more sophisticated tech.
look like they dumbed it down tho.
some people aren't happy that it uses unreal engine 3, a stupid reason. http://n4g.com/news/1225396...
Very nice looking game... Although when it comes to stealth games I would prefer it being 3rd person view.
@army I prefer 1st person for stealth more realistic that way. You shouldn't be able to see behind yourself when you are looking forward.
Many people just don't like 1st person stealth. I honestly am not a fan of it, but I am still willing to try it out.
UE3 is outdated for next gen. It just can't keep up with today's standards and it will not be updated to support HDR and other more advanced techniques; all the things which are in UE4. It also has framerate issues on the PS4 - 30fps is fine, but nothing beyond. Blacklight runs UE3 and you can see that it tears quite a bit.
One thing I despise about this game is the utter dismissal of many of the original Thief factions, lore and characters. I longed for a Thief four with the Hammerites and the Pagans battling it out, with Garret being pulled into it without his consent. The original world and atmosphere is gone, in favor of a much more historical depiction of the City... Also, where are the horror elements? Also, the gameplay was looking good before the escape part... The bit where he is caught pisses me off... No way would Garret be caught and run off like that, alerting half the City. You should have the option to be able to do it all without being detected, sneak in and out silently, just like in the original Thief games.
It looks solid. Not great. But that's how the entire Thief series has been. Graphics have always taken a back seat to gameplay with them, and they still generally manage to maintain a good sense of immersion. The original Thief was immersive as hell, despite having pretty meh graphics even for the time.
I can understand why some would prefer stealth games to be third person but first person has always played to it's advantage. Third person allows you to see around corners giving you an edge and taking away from the sneaking experience. Playing Thief games gives you a different sense of immersion since it's first person. Having to actually peek around corners and listen to your surroundings gives it a level of immersion you don't get from game like Splinter Cell. Any stealth fan would be a fool to not give it a try even if it only gets OK reviews.
yes it is but graphically is nothing like jaw dropping and i already played this game :) well sort of, you know what i mean....Dishonored rings a bell, anyway i will play the game because i like the idea.
This game has nothing to do with Dishonored stop comparing the two.
all latest Square Enix published games are awesome (dues ex, sleeping dogs, tomb raider, hitman absolution)
It is very enclosed so they are able to detail the fuck out of it
It isn't that detailed though.
I might take a look at this game, I loved Dishonored and thief may be similar. Although what I loved most about dishonored were the special super-natural abilities. Doesn't seem like thief will have anything cool like that, so it's more like dishonored minus anything futuristic or super-natural. I can cope with old-style games if there is some super-natural abilities or some kind of futuristic weaving into the story or gameplay (AC series is the perfect example). But if the game is 100% old-style and the character is simply limited to their modern day abilities and restrictions, that doesn't seem to interesting to me.
I can't wait to play this on my PS4 :)
Curiously absent XBO footage...
Well, that's not excessively surprising since this comes from Sony.
No offence but there isn't a lot of footage of the Xbox One version...If any at all. If you find a vid link me to it.
What Riderz said. We've only seen PS4 and PC footage thus far as far as I can recall.
Devs want to show the version in the best possible light. This is with most multiplats. So they show their work on PS4.
Reminds me of Dishonored. :)
eh, it's more the other way around, really :D
i know, dishonored was inspired by thief
I haven't played theif before so forgive me for my mistake. I'm interested in the game though especially with the way the stealth is handled in it.
So this pretty much confirms that the PS4 version will be running at a higher rez (1080p). The game does look incredible.
how is it in higher rez? the vid is 1080p, and the xbox version is not confirmed yet, nor is the ps4 version. It is just the vid on youtube which is 1080p, kind of different.
arinaborina: This close to launch and no one is talking. That should be an indicator... This may help: http://s28.postimg.org/9exh...
Lol Morgan Arin... Read your comment. The answer lies within...
Looks cool. Reminds Dishonored and obviously the other Thief games, although I'll try to get it cheaper. And it seems that 1080p it's becoming a standard for PS4. The next year perhaps all PS4 games will can run at 1080p.
Oh God, what have they done to Thief? This looks terrible :(
It's not terrible but I agree it's not a Thief game from the original on PC version. It's more consolified now. I guess that's to be expected. It reminds me more of Deus EX HR or Dishonored than Thief. I'm still quite looking forward to the game in it's own right though.
I wonder if you still can't jump when you want to? http://www.incgamers.com/20...
Awesome looking game indeed
It's hard to believe this game is actually coming out next month, I can't wait to play it.
I personally would prefer it if there was no method of killing the guards, you can only avoid them, just feels like an assassin that happens to steal things rather than being a proper Thief.
They confirmed in another video that you can customize the difficulty. Making being caught result in instant death, only one life, etc. With any luck, there will be a option or two to limit or completely remove all of Garret's lethal options.
How would that be realistic? Any thief has the ability to kill
Good ones shouldn't though, its not about the ability its about morals, thieves generally aren't ruthless murderers, I just feel it would differentiate itself more from dishonored (Which this game gives me very strong vibes of) if it had the inability to kill anyone, you should be forced to sneak around them like a real thief.
Sign me up for a first person stealth game any day!....looks great, pretty sure there was many ways of going about the mission and thats the best part about it
This game looks like it can become real tedious after two or three missions. I don't know about this one.
It does look weak. People are just starving for something.
This game looks okay. There are Ps3 games that look way better than this. Maybe they should lower the res and up the textures. Maybe it looks bad because its at night.
YouTube compression doesn't help either. With the game drought in full swing anything looks good
That's where I'm at. I'm hungry for a new game so this will at least give me something to do until inFamous.
I agree. I almost ordered a PS3 yesterday, but when I looked for games to order I could not find one. We have PS4 versions of PS3 games and that is it. I want at least one good PS4 exclusive to go with it. Infamous just may be the game.
I know what you mean. I am still enjoying KZ: SF online. Tomb Raider next for me, then Infamous
UE3 is still killing it. That engine was so far ahead of its time. The art style suits it perfectly.
just my opinion...but this game doesn't really blow my mind from what i see, and i think it will just be "ok". but who knows.
Seems PS4 footage is shown first for many games this gen. GOOD!
crap only 1 city 4 chapters. 4 hours gameplay. They had so much time doing this game.
This game is so boring :/
Fully customizable difficulty is what I've been asking for in games for a long time. Perfect
Looks ok but waiting on the X1 version of it to see it really stand out.When you look at every other multiplatform game like Ghost and BF4 they look dull with no detail at all on the PS4.Then on the Xbox One they are vibrant and detailed looks amazing
Never really liked the look of Thief, however after watching these gameplay videos I can't wait for it!
I have never played a Thief game before but this is going to be the first one. Day one buy on PS4.
I always wanted to play the older Thief games when they were new but I was a young kid with no money to get a gaming card and my parents sure as hell weren't going to let me change the card in their computer so I missed out so many PCs games of the late 90s and early 00s. This game looks to easy. I hate that about games nowadays. Enemies are so dumb that if you are standing 15 feet in front of them, they can't see you. This goes for games like Assassin's Creed, Deus Ex Human Revolution, and many others. As long as you aren't under the actual light source, they can't see you. Why do they make games easy for us and hold our hands?
Thief is albeit old is still fun nowadays. I just played the original last summer for the first time and had a blast stealthing the entire game.
hardly looks what I would call "next gen" looks like a pc game from 2007-2008
what's wrong with his hands? why are they always in that position?
I dont know if it is from the footage but the game seems to no be V-sync since im seeing instances of screen tearing.
They're showing allot of stuff to the media right now, thats a good sign to me
keep in mind youtube is killing alot of the detail in the graphics :)
