Third Thief gets third-person view

Eidos announces new camera option for the previously first-person stealth series, confirms rumored title. New screens inside.


Eidos confirmed today what GameSpot reported last week: the third installment in the Thief series will indeed be called Thief: Deadly Shadows.

One facet of the game, still in development at Ion Storm, was news today. The game will support what publisher Eidos is calling a "third-person cinematic action view." This new perspective will be in addition to the series' traditional first-person view, which was first created by long-defunct developer Looking Glass Studios.

Eidos also released a number of new screens to whet gamers' appetites (see above). Thief: Deadly Shadows is not yet rated, but is due this Spring on both Xbox and the PC.
