Information:

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time (also known as Sly 4), is the upcoming fourth title of the Sly Cooper series of platform stealth video games. Thieves in Time will be available on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. Though the original series was developed by Sucker Punch Productions for the PlayStation 2, this game will be developed by Sanzaru Games, who had previously ported the original games into high-definition versions for the PlayStation 3. The game was teased in these versions, but it was not formally announced until several months later at the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo during Sony's presentation on June 6, 2011.

The game, set in a world populated by anthropomorphic animals, follows from the end of Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves. Sly Cooper, a raccoon from a long line of master thieves, will need to reunite with his gang to locate and recover the Thievius Raccoonus, a book chronicling the Cooper family line that has been lost within time. The player controls Sly, Bentley, Murray, Carmelita Fox, and Sly's ancestors, using their skills to pull off heists and reveal who has tampered with the Cooper history.

Gameplay:

The developers said Sly 4 will keep its core gameplay, something what made the fans fall in love with but at the same time will also include lots of new  features that the fans will love even more.

Like previous games in the series, players primarily control Sly Cooper, who must sneak around and navigate various obstacles to help restore the history of the Thievius Raccoonus. Many of Sly's abilities return, such as navigating poles and ropes, jumping across narrow platforms and stealing items from guards. New to this game are costumes earned throughout the course of the game, which give Sly access to new abilities. Examples include a suit of armor that allows Sly to reflect projectiles with a shield, an archery outfit that lets him shoot arrows at targets to create rope lines and an Arabian pirate-like suit that allows him to slow down time and use a sword to break sturdy objects. These costumes can be taken to previously visited levels to reach secret areas.

New secret masks and treasures will be hidden throughout the game; the latter item, unlike its counterpart in previous installments, will be collectible only and will not be available to sell on the game's ThiefNet service (although the player will still receive an in-game monetary reward). The clue bottles from Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus and Sly 2: Band of Thieves will be making a return, allowing the player to unlock new abilities for all of the playable characters. A new feature will allow anyone who owns both the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 versions of the game to use the Vita system as "a set of x-ray goggles" to find any of these hidden collectibles anywhere in the world, through the use of augmented reality.

Its PACKED with collectables:

You will be able to collect tons of stuff!

Augmented Reality:

We are also showing off some unique cross-play features for Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time that will utilize both the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStaion Vita versions of the game. Weve already talked about the cross-save feature, which will use cloud saving to transfer your game from one device to the other. Here at Gamescom, were showcasing some pretty cool Augmented Reality features using the PS Vita system to help you collect some valuable items as you play through the PS3 version of the game.

While playing Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time on PS3, youll need to recruit an assistant in your quest for collectibles, armed with a PlayStation Vita and the PS Vita version of the game. Following true Sly tradition, Thieves in Time is absolutely packed with stuff for players to collect as they tear their way across space and time, from clue bottles to treasure challenges, Sly masks to costumes; but sometimes these items can be quite difficult to locate. You now have a secret weapon! Using the PS Vita system as a set of X-ray goggles, you can look into Slys universe to help track them down. Simply point the PS Vita at the TV screen and press the button to lock onto the image, and the X-ray overlay will pop up and highlight all of the hidden treasures in orange throughout the world. The PS Vita player simply taps on the front touch screen to display a pointer on the TV that will show you where to look for the hidden loot!

Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time

You can also use Augmented Reality to help you collect ancient hidden art treasures as you play through the game. There are dozens of beautiful tapestries, paintings, mosaics and other ancient art works scattered through the game. You can use the camera on your PS Vita to snap photographs of these as a way to collect them and earn more money. Just point your PS Vita at the TV to aim, press the button to take the photo and bingo Sly collects the loot!

Fee Roaming:

In respect to free-roaming, like its predecessors Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time boasts incredible free-roaming environments. Due to the large environments in this game, a compass has been added that follows the character right by their feet. Shown in the "It's Time to Be Sly" trailer, Bentley is shown to have two compasses, the reasoning not yet explained. Pressing the L3 button (back touch screen on the PlayStation Vita) will make it appear for a short while (as well as the markers from Sly 2 and 3). When activated, it will be surround the character's feet, pointing the player to the next mission, objective, or area of interest. It also works with the 3D environments, as it is able to point out whether the next objective is below or above you. Mat Kraemer, in an interview with the Second Funniest Podcast, has confirmed that the compass can be turned on and off, along with the radar.
Environments in Sly 4 are "twice as big" as the previous installments, mainly due to them having many layers. In the previous games, it was limited to the rooftop, or the ground. However, in this game, environments are supposedly more than that, having more tiers and levels to explore within the environment.

Budget pricing and a studio I've never heard of.

This is gonna end well.

ugh, bummer they are always pumping out new games for franchises i never cared about.

had this been a new jumping flash i would have cried with joy.

#4 Posted by Slashkice (13647 posts) -

Was interested for cross-buy and cheap price, but the demo turned me off.

It's just another Sly game instead of an evolution of the series.

Desmonic

Budget pricing is indeed strange, but the studio seems okay. They were the ones that did the Sly trilogy and they were the ones that went ahead and built a demo of how Sly could work on the PS3 and showed it to Sony. Had they not done that Sony wouldn't push for this game at all. So they do love the franchise, and hopefully, they treated it well! I have mine pre-ordered! :D But it only comes out in March in Europe -_- damn release date...

Wow everything comes out late in Europe i see.

I really love the new price for the game, will leave me something to save up for God of War next month.. god im going to be buying a game every month lol hate you sony

Out tomorrow? Wat?

It's 29th March.

#11 Posted by StaticOnTV (597 posts) -
THIS IS THE LAST CHANCE, for the PS2 triple platforming champions to make a comeback this gen? With one Jak game on PSP with mixed reception, and a dying Ratchet and Clank pumping out many games trying to stay relevant while having large quality drops, this unkonwn budget studio is the last chance to get Sly back on the map, or it may be the end of the Big 3 platformers, that dominated last gen (and Blinx the cat but he had no other sequels after the second game.) Place your bets, will Sly hold off so that the other 2 can make a comeback next gen? Will the big 3 Platforming PS2 champions be relevant ever again? The Vita version will use the legendary innovative features, this game has a strong chance with sales.

I really want to buy this game, and support the dev...but I just got Fire Emblem and have 12 other games on the go...not to mention just having finished Sly 3... Maybe in March, and I'll wait on God of War

Thats exactly what the fans wanted and what i wanted as a fan.. why change whats not broken? theyv added tons of other things to the game but the core gameplay is still as we remember from the PS2 days.

Y u no buy less!? XDD

I'm honestly making an effort. If I wasn't, I would already own/have preorders for MGR:R, Rayman, God of War, Sly 4, DMC, Pokemon X, and several others. My backloggery account is horrible.

The demo not only looked really good on my HDTV but also on the Vita.. i tried the demo twice one time on PS3 and one time on Vita.. got to say Vita really susprised me and showed how amazing games can look on that little system.

Vita is a powerful piece of hardware, just check out Killzone: Mercenary. Too bad Sony doesn't know wtf to do with it.

The specs are quite random if you really think I'm making it up. I built my pc 5 years ago and got my laptop couple of years. I can post pics if you'd like.

#35 Posted by Ghost120x (4187 posts) -
I have to beat the collection I just bought first. The demo was really good but the game mechanics seem dated when comparing it to the games we have today. They should have had the demo set at a later level so I can really see what the game has to offer. The demo felt too straightforward but that is because this is probably the first level in the game.

That's not the point dude. You constantly bash everything thread about Sony or PS3 exclusives without any logic or reasoning. It's hard not to call you a lemming. Then I look at your GODLO 4, and btw your my review link on your sig doesn't work.

I cant wait. The Demo was awesome. Fingers crossed that the game is at least 12 hours long. I am almost done with the Sly Collection also, so I will pick this up soon.

Yeah I deleted it in my blog. I'm not trying convince anyone that I don't usually side with MS. Honestly, if Sony had Halo I would be on their side. I'm more of a Halo fanboy than a MS fanboy but I guess in the process it's made me uninterested and unimpressed in many things Sony does. Oh and if I was lying in my sig, don't you think I would list better specs? My pc is now considered in the low-end range.

I would have been worried, but the demo felt like the Sly, I know and love, so I'm confidant I will love the game, though the fact that reviews are being embargoed until tomorrow is a bit worrisome. I'm happy for the price drop, with Sly and Fire Emblem it was a hectic week, can't wait until tomorrow, though I won't be playing it until after classes.

The rest of the game will be more open world, the first level of every sly game is very straightforward and linear.

Sad but so true, even if GS, there seems to be no hype for this game, that until this thread one day before the game releases.
