Eidos post image of Thief 4, playtest shot shows third-person

Developer Eidos Montreal has posted a photograph of Thief 4 being playtested at the studio. It shows leading man Garrett, bow in hand, in third-person. Very little is known about Thief 4 as Eidos and Square Enix have kept quiet. At least fans know to expect third-person views in the game, at least during archery.

I hope it will be its own game and not just a re-skinned version of Assassin's Creed.

I'm pretty sure they are taking the franchise and the potential for this to be the biggest game in it more seriously than that.

Thief is very different than AC. That's why it's called "Thief" and not "Assassin". If anything, it resembles Hitman's approach to level design more than Assassin's Creed's approach.

Did you ever play the Thief games? Nothing like Assassin's Creed. FAR more stealth involved.

You could use your arrows to knock out light sources. It looks like that's what going on in this pic...he seems more aimed at the street lamp than the guard.

Words cannot describe your stupidity.

What am I seeing, someone with a crossbow?

Corrwin2765d ago

It's a bow. You don't have to hold a bow perpendicular to the floor, especially short bows.

From what I can make of it, the setting seems to take place sometime in the XIIIth century.

frostypants2765d ago (Edited 2765d ago )

Nah. Look at all the lights in the windows, and look at the street lamps (both the lighting and the posts they're on). Also look at the size of the buildings and the architecture. Seems more contemporary.

Still, if you recall the Thief games (especially later ones) were in an alternate reality to ours, where there was a certain level of tech along with old school stuff. So who knows...

Malebaria2765d ago

You're right. I actually meant the XVIIIth century.

Corrwin2765d ago

Please just base it on Thief 2, and not Thief 3.

Please Square Enix.

I dunno The cradle level in Thief 3 was better than any Thief 2 level

I hope for a mix of all 3 games

Corrwin2765d ago

The Cradle level, whilst brilliant, had nothing to do with thief gameplay.

If you want scary gameplay, Thief should not be your first choice.

CrzyFooL2765d ago

That level was one of the most brilliant in the history of games. It still haunts me.
