Thief: Deadly Shadows Summary
There'll be a turning down of crazy in Eidos Montreal's new Thief, but that doesn't mean they won't stay mystical. It's important that players can connect to the "realistic believable aspect" of Garrett's world.
The studio have kept in the mystical, but not the magical, and no they will "not have zombies in this one." We were teased about a certain Thief tradition being followed when it comes to levels.
Art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete of Deus Ex: Human Revolution has said that Thief 4 production is going full swing while their team winds down.
The Deus Ex team take a "lesser space" than Thief 4 as of now. The teams are "entirely separate" with "no role at all" shared. It'll "rock your shorts."
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.
Square Enix has a session titled 'Stealing Sound: Generative Music in THIEF' for this year's GDC, with the blurb hinting it will include Thief 4 (Thi4f).
It will promote that studios should "embrace alternative music models" to address "linearity" issues in games, and to 'push away from film'.
The upcoming Thief 4 from Eidos, who is keeping details seriously under wraps, may have just been confirmed for the PlayStation 3 at least.
The official PlayStation twitter mouthpiece declared: "Oh man", followed by Thief 4's website domain. That's it - except we know its multiplatform?
