After yersterday’s videos Sony Computer Entrtainment UK released a new clip of the PS4 version of the upcoming stealth action game Thief, that will hit the North American shelves on February 25th.
Sweet like Jelly Sony!
Indeed. This game looks pretty good (as a fan of the original Looking Glass Thief games, I am cautiously optimistic. Looks like PS4 is the de-facto multiplatform machine if that's what you're into. Remember how halfway through last gen the war-cry from some people was: "who cares about exclusives? The only games I'm interested in are multiplats, and my console has the best versions of multiplats"? I hope that idiotic mindset dies and I hope that the PS4 fanbase does not puppet those same excuses.
Still debating if I'm getting this game... I want something new for the PS4, but this isn't really my kind of game. I suck at stealth and end up getting frustrated. But it looks really pretty. Decisions, decisions.
Never really been a fan of this series.
This game cannot come soon enough about a month to go
It's pretty well finished. Three weeks out they need to be done so the publishers and platform holders can have a week to certify the versions Gold. Then two weeks for reproduction and shipping. So where ever they are now it's done. Resolutions and framerates have been locked for a while, AI is set. They are just polishing and bug crushing at this point. This is going to be so enjoyable to have an actual Thief title rather than gaming on Skyrim pretend mode. Not that I do not like Skyrim, I do but this is an honest to goodness Thief title.
Haven't you played Dishonored? That felt like a nice blend of Bioshock 1 with Thief II, though the levels were not as sprawling nor as intricately designed as those in Thief II.
Yes I did play Dishonored and I agree it is a very good title. I enjoyed it many hours into the night. But being a kyudo practitioner there are some things Dishonored, as good as it was, did not provide me.
Hoping this game doesnt disappoint, been looking forward to it for awhile. Love the stealthy type play how you want games.
This is just pure brilliance! Huge amount of options so that everyone can play the game their own way. Not just your usual easy, medium, hard difficulties..
Hopefully this will start a trend towards more customizations and other devs will take notes on how to provide options instead of just alienating certain gamers by offering only casual play modes.
@HighResHero My thoughts exactly! Btw, I can't believe someone seems to disagree with more options :D guess you just can't please some people..
Maybe they want health regeneration and insta-checkpoints to be mandatory for everyone.
Wow! That is a serious amount of options that can be customized! I am so pumped for this game; my stealth itch has gone unscratched for far too long.
Jeeze I hope this game's good.
Nice Graphics, 60fps/1080p should be the standard with next-gen consoles
To all the people who were complaining about being able to kill and Focus ruining the experience, here you go: You can severely cripple Focus; regeneration in general; and you can have kills, knockouts, and alerts result in instant failure. On another note, I can already tell that I'll be beating my brains out trying to beat the game on Master with all the mods turned on, mini-map disabled, meters disabled, light gem disabled, loot glint disabled, and Garret's voice disabled >:D
Looking forward to the challenge.
These custom settings should cater to the new and old Thief fans and the perfectionists out there that want to do every mission with stealth only. Glad that the developers are doing something not many do. Reminds me of the old days of game changing cheat codes, but these are the opposite that bring a wider challenge. More developers should do this to give more variety to their games.
Looking forward to see people complete that insane challenge with everything ON!
I love it. It's like skulls in Halo or Mutators in Gears. Honestly, allowing the player to stack unlock-able options on top of each other to vary up the campaign play-through is something you'd think you'd see more of.
