Thief 4 Called Simply Thief, More Details Confirmed

Going in line with yesterday's leaked images from the Thief 4, a buttload of info also surfaced today. Thief 4, which they are naming simply Thief, is reportedly going to land on PC, PS4 and other platforms in 2014 (which is what we've learned yesterday).

Here's the first bunch of details on the upcoming game:


  • Garrett isn't a fighter
  • Fighting against four or more guards in combat won't go well
  • Guards and other NPCs are aware of the level design, so they know where a person might try to hide
  • Guards understand the topography of the level and which areas could be useful for hiding
  • Different NPCs will look for Garrett in different ways

Gameplay mechanics

  • Navigation beacon shows players where to go
  • Dev. team wants players to explore environments as they see fit
  • Multiple entrances and exists in each room
  • Multiple options available for stealth approach
  • "Focus" mechanic: has many uses, including being able to aid Garrett's vision as he navigates through open levels
  • Focus lights up the screen and highlights pipes you can climb + candles you can put out to make the room darker

Everything is retarded friendly. Difficulty now is for the unfortunate with down syndrome.

And achievements are for hyperactive, bipolar happy-go-lucky fucktards.

It's not a new Torment game. Just crafted in the same 'tradition'. Whatever the hell that means.

Oh, and, of course, it's erroneously ripping off the name, despite have fuck-all to do with TNO or PS:T's plot, or even its game-world.

Actually sort of pisses me off, now that I think about it.

I know it's a long shot, but I hope go back to the stylish cutscenes of Thief 1+2. They were like living paintings at times.

I'm actually quite sick of stealth games. While I like the tactical bit, I'm really tired of sneaking and avoiding detection and let's be honest there have been some really good stealth games lately. I might try Thief but not sure.

On the other hand I'm looking forward to Bioshock Infinite and maybe even more to Prey 2:)
A nice polished RTS with many races to play would be nice.
I satisfied my adventure appetite with DMC. What a gameXD

If Destiny was on PC:

I'd buy it.
I'd try it.
I'd tell it to toss off and then go to bed with me gently.
