i dont know nothing about this game but i did saw some youtube gameplay footage of the first game in the series (Dark Project)

it got alot of great concepts but the AI looked kinda Dumb
as a stealth gaming fan
i hope that this is true and i got my eye on this game

the 3rd game ended the trilogy but the child in the ending insinuated that he'd become the new thief, similar to how the thief in the series became one. If there's a new thief ... it'd probably be based off that kid, but then again, a whole lot went into shambles in that 3rd game.

Conloles2877d ago

Yeah wishful thinking, ironstarmovement you can tell its not gonna be true.

The Tingler2877d ago

The first two games are superb, mainly in terms of story, world and your ability to explore (most stealth games are painfully linear) but you're right - they have aged a lot by now.

You should try the third game, Thief: Deadly Shadows. That still looks pretty good and still retains a lot of the things that make the series my favourite gaming franchise. It's worth playing just for the Shalebridge Cradle level, one of the creepiest in gaming.

You certainly can't call yourself a stealth fan without trying Thief properly! :) If 4 manages to carry on the series well and keeps Garrett as the main character I'll be very happy indeed.

beardpapa2877d ago

Lol I remember going up those stairs. I showed my cousin a YouTube vid of that and he was like, "that's scary?"

Sure it doesnt seem scary nowadays but six years ago it was pretty darn creepy

The Tingler2877d ago

Ahh, you absolutely have to PLAY the Cradle, you can't watch it. It's one of the best examples of games as a proper interactive medium - you're involved, you know what the place is like, how vulnerable Garrett is, and you call the shots about what happens. It's still scary now - if you actually play it!

On the other hand maybe your cousin only gets scared by Saw and other s*** like that. :)

I agree, I loved Theif when it came out, hopefully Theif 4 comes out as a PS3 exclusive so it can truely use the PS3's potential.

XactGamer2877d ago

IMO Thief is the best stealth series ever made with MG and Splinter Cell coming after. The next Thief will be PC, PS3 and 360 but any true Thief fan will get it on PC.

LtSkittles2877d ago

Oh, I really hope Sony delivers at E3, not just about this, but everything in general, and hope they have some big surprises.

Raoh2877d ago

its an eidos title... so not exclusive

Pandamobile2877d ago (Edited 2877d ago )

Unless something has changed, it is set to be a PC exclusive. (I think)

TheIneffableBob2877d ago

I doubt it's PC exclusive. Let's just hope it has PC-type gameplay.

XactGamer2877d ago

I don't think Thief will be exclusive to any platform but will be far far superior on PC.

sid4gamerfreak2877d ago

@Pandamobile: I hope theif 4 is pc exclusive. If its not, its still ok, the PC version will be superior

ProjectVulcan2877d ago

I doubt it will be Pc exclusive. Deus ex 3 is multi, i dont see why this wouldnt be either. I dont see the news in this, i always saw it as a multi plat title ever since deus ex was confirmed as one

Raoh2877d ago (Edited 2877d ago )

well i cant see sony tweeting a game close to e3 that wont appear on their console

and pretty much everything is going multiplatform, anything that is not locked in a first or second party deal is going multi

RememberThe3572877d ago

Like Roah said there is really not other reason for Sony to tweet this. Way would they push a game that isn't going to make them money?

Raf1k12877d ago (Edited 2877d ago )

I can't see them making it exclusive to console since the vast majority of its fanbase are PC gamers. I am actually expecting it to be a multi-platform game though.

BakedGoods2876d ago

Wasn't 'Deadly Shadows' an XBOX exclusive?

I fully expect thi4f to be on 360 and ps3 as well as PC.

SDF Repellent2877d ago

wow..Thief is a good series, but I can care less if it is either PS3 or X360 exclusive.

ElementX2877d ago

The correct phrase is "couldn't care less"

Raf1k12877d ago

You're right that's how it is but a lot of people say it that way on here and you'd be the first to bother correcting them.

GameOn2877d ago

Ive seen people try to correct people for that mistake and it turn into a huge argument, Only on N4G.

"could care less" is WRONG.

ElementX2877d ago

Slow news day, what can I say?
