Speaking to IncGamers, Eidos Montreal's general manager, Stephane D'Astous has said that highly anticipated Thief 4 is coming along very well indeed.
I think I've pee'd my pants. God, this is going to be good, it has to be.
Really? I mean it's good, but - really?
Every Thief game has been good so far, so I can't wait until this one releases. Day one.
THEY ARE MAKING A NEW THIEF FOR REAL???!!!! /caps *swoon*
But, have you tried playing 1-3 recently? man they did NOT age well. I am looking forward to a modern version and will definitely be picking this up when it comes out.
Finally some news! Garret is my favourite anti-hero! I wonder what direction they'll be taking this game in.. I hope keep the sandbox gameplay, lockpicking and the dagger from the 3rd, and make everything else like the old games.
Good stuff. Really eager to see more on this.
What have they released so far, besides this?
This is going to be awesome and I can't wait to see what it looks like.
It needs a level as good as The Cradle.
I had completely forgotten about The Cradle, one of hte best levelsof all time. Yeah, we should start a petition to bring that back!
The guy who designed that is the creative director on BioShock 2, which is a good reason to look forward to that. There's so much scope within Thief for brilliant levels, though, that I find it hard to believe there won't be at least one absolute stand-out. EDIT: Petition to bring back a *level*? *What*?
I've heard about that level... what's the big deal about it?
"The Cradle" level in Thief 3 was the scariest level I've ever played in my life. Not even FEAR, Dead Space, Resident Evil games, Bioshock, etc. freaked me out as much as that level. In fact, I got so scared I stopped playing for a day or so, to get my nerves back on. It made me almost quit the game. Before I played the level, I read somewhere on the net that it was very creepy. I didn't believe it then. Boy, I was in for a surprise.
I haven't played Thief 3 in a couple of years, all this talk of The Cradle makes me want to play it again. I've got it somewhere, I might dig it up and install it.
When I first saw it, it looked like "Thiefiv" :)
Really love stealthy games. Prototype, SplinterCell, Hitman. If you are into those games, Thief is your thing.
isnt prototype the one with an achievement for killing like 50 people in 5 seconds. real stealthy.
fail! for not mentioning MGS :)
You failed to mention MGS and you said that Prototype is a stealthy game. Your post fails.
Chronicles of Riddick.
I hope they don't have any levels with those mechanical steam-powered things. They really ruined the experience for me. Those things didn't exist and I know it's just a game, but it didn't fit with the atmosphere. I guess the moss arrows didn't fit either, but they were alright.... I'd rather the game be a little more realistic.
The Thief series are some of my favourite games, and although Thief 3 was slightly consolized (although not as much as Deus Ex 2) I still really enjoyed it. I'll be looking forward to this.
But I want Deus Ex !!
I think the Thief series is my favorite series of all time. I can't wait for #4! It would be cool if they gave you the the previous games if you pre-ordered or at least the first 2. I still have 3 around here somewhere.
