Chris Watters gets a demo of some new Thief footage from our E3 2013 Stage Show.
Did you enjoy this video?
I really hope they fix that shroud idea, it obscures a large portion of your vision and is total shit. They need to work on something that is not so visible and less intrusive. We don't need a huge fucking red sign in the middle of the screen that says "ATTENTION! You are now invisible" for us to notice it. We are not idiots, Eidos!
THIS. IS. THIEF!!!
Would be super happy if they put at least one Hammerite ghost and one drunk, singing guard in there somewhere, not as a big element or anything, but just as a cameo. Actually, that would make the ghosts even scarier!
i was never interested in the thief franchise but after buying it in steam thanks to the sale and finishing it cant wait for the release of this one :D
I think i prefer thief more than tom clancy blacklist there are many things to do and to use
@7imgamer Sam Fisher wishes he was Garrett... or Batman.
I can't wait to taff around in this game!
Is this Game 3rd Person or only 1st Person
@gpyogaraj The first two were purely 1st person, and the third included a 3rd person option, but it was largely useless. Way I look at it, Thier has always been 1st person.
Mechanics looks great. The background score and killing is satisfying but the graphics are not of New gen. And I feel they should have made that third person. May by doing so it would look like AC like jumping, crouching killing etc
Even though I know that Thief was around before Dishonored, I can't help but keep waiting for him to use Blink to flash through the lit areas! I hope they provide a good story but keep it to where it's about a thief, not a person made to be the savior to the world in some way or fashion. Looks great so far!
Graphics needs some more polishing,can't exactly call them next gen,otherwise better than Dishonored.
I like this game :)
aww... wish this was on 3rd person view...
This game is so Orgasmic.
I realty like last game but I think they should do a Thief HD Collection for ps3 and other formats so i think Thief will sell. Also do Deus EX HD Collection as well.
Mixed feelings from what I've seen.
1. Thief has always been, and should continue to be 'that' game known for hardcore stealth. An action play style should be near impossible to pull off, not a viable strategic option . If I wanted to play yet another hybrid stealth shooter Splinter Cell, Hitman, Dishonored, and Deus Ex are all available;
2. Not a fan of the focus, Max Payne style bullet time mechanic. Takes away from the feeling of vulnerability from past Thief games; and
3. No Stephen Russell voicing Garret is a real shame. One of the best voice acting performances in gaming history in my opinion.
mmm i still don´t see the next gen thing on this game... it could run on ps3 just perfectly...
Reminds me of dishonored...cool game!
This game looks pretty good.. Great game mechanics.. I don't doubt these guys to make a good re-imagining of a franchise after hearing good things about Hitman and playing the brilliant Tomb Raider
This game looks so AWESOME!!!
what a game i loved
Cpl of things...
1) The interviewer is a nub
2) This is PC buy
3) Please put Burricks back in Ok. I happen to like clouds of yellow gas.
4) Get rid of the Quick Time Events for f***k sake, this is a Thief game whereby slow and steady wins the race. Quick time events simply rip control from the player !! I want total immersion.so leave the neck snapping QTE b*llsh*t to other genres ok.
5) I will be buying this game.
GIVE IT TO ME NOW!
"High end PCs in 2014" Rofl. A two year old PC could run this nicely.
I don't consider Thief and Dishonored anywhere near alike. Dishonored for me was an arcadey mismatch, where stealth was an option, not a requirement. I chose to play stealthy because it was how I wanted to play, but I really didnt have to. I never felt, oh wow - got caught - time to panic. That's the total opposite of Thief. Higher difficulties - you get found, if you dont escape, 9/10 - you're dead.. I know there's a lot of thief 4 apologists around here, and I wouldnt be surprised if they enjoyed dishonered too. I'd love if they could get one of these apologists to play dishonored at its hardest, and then go transition to Thief Gold at it's hardest and see if they stack up. Thief Gold can prep you for dishonored, Dishonored can't prep you for Thief.
Thief 1 + 2 = Classic.[Thief 3 = meh..]
Thief 4 = modern bs.There I said it.
If Dishonored had these graphics, it would still be boring.
Weird. It seems as if Thief 4 is taking cues from Dishonored, which took cues from the original Thief games. I'm not sure what to think of this, I mean the powers and the climbing, hell even the hud and button prompts look similar to that of Dishonored. Dishonored may have been heavily been influenced by the Thief games but it was distinct enough to stand out from the rest. If someone was to make a Thief mod for Dishonored (hypothetically of course, considering the engine isn't capable of that) I imagine it looking quite similar to this. As of right now I am cautiously optimistic for this title.
The last game I remember that "anyone can just pick up and play" was The Sims. Not just because it was intuitive but because it was so far removed from most games out there that most people wanted to give it a go. The problem with games today aiming for both hardcore AND casual gamers is approach-ability. As arrogant as it sounds, hardcore gamers know how to play games better than casual gamers. They don't need tutorials;they don't need contextual instant takedown events; they don't need visual markers or any other cheap trick to make things easier for them. Generally, they know how things are going to pan out and have an idea of game play mentality. You want to aim for both demographics? Fine, make something that no one has played before. Don't water down a game to pander to both markets. Or you'll end up with a shallow game like dishonored.
I love the first person view. The hands and legs movement seem really real
If they screw this up, they should change jobs.
You had me when you said you could play completely aggressive if I choose to!
I actually enjoyed most everything on display here.
Like the developer said, I'll turn off all the optional hand-holding features in the hopes it'll feel more like the first three games. I'm glad the rope arrow has made a return--it was noticeably absent from Thief 3 but Dark Messiah had it and reminded me how much diversity it added to the game.
My only concern was that @ 9:10 the guards walked through each other. Did anyone else notice that?
That presentation was incredibly dull and underwhelming. Not only the graphics are last gen and ugly, but mechanically it seems like a very SHALLOW game. What a disappointment.
It' s one of the games I will definitely play. It bears great similarities to Dishonored(yeah I don' t care which copied the other), which I absolutely enjoyed. I understand that fans who have played the original games will one way or the other be disappointed in some aspects(combat, only 1st person etc) but unfortunately that' s almost always the case when a new game attempts to match the magnificence of its predecessor. The original is always hard to be topped.
never pleayed any of thief games, but this looks nice. for me its like a bit of dishonored? but high end pc-s? cmon, it does not look like a huge step compared to "todays" games in graphics... what do u think?
Game looks great but if it is just for next gen units I won't be playing it. I'm not going to buy a spy on you unit just to play a game. Sure people will buy them but the game industry is going to diminish because of their greed.
I'm so happy that all the best games are on pc as well. This year is going to be incredible
I hope they don't mess it up, the original games were awesome.
And there are too many visual cues on the screen. Also, the Eye has a mana bar? ...
Thief with takedown? This worries me to no end.
Can't say I like the dimming around the screen edges when completely hidden. What's the point of restricting the player's field of view?
Sometimes knowing that you have an easy way out ruins the experience. I am, of course, referring to all of these options modern stealth game devs like to boast about.
Yeah. Garret now is not the same...
Looks awesome, defo buying.
Glad to see that i'm not the only one with concerns about this game.I picked up some flak just for point out these potential issues.The people who replied negatively to my comments below, and the ones who liked their replies, probably arent thief fans.
I played Thief 1 and 2 on every difficulty setting and I loved the fact that new objectives were added, and the modes got more and more difficult, and you had less health forcing you to play it stealth, and not go gung ho, you had to think about the enviroments.
So when I see this game give you sonar, and other stupidness telling you its there, to help you understand the enviroment - I know this dude has no grounding in the thief way. And it's a dead give away by the way he starts talking about the casual player with children shouting at them, what game design should be changed by the potential of kids shouting? I don't care if it was a joke.
I'm the thief player who loved the game, loved the atmosphere, took all the damn cutscenes joined em up into one video and went to sleep listening to it. If I have concerns, it's not out of hate. It's out of respect for what came before.
dishonored 1.5 graphically and gameplaywise
After watching this demo I can safely say that this will be the first Thief game I will ever play. Extremely excited for this now!
Shit, spilled coffee all over my laptop. Damn you Thief!
