  • Thi4f - reboot - legit this time.

    Saw this the other day and thought of you guys...

    Apparently thief 4 has been in the works for a little while now and there are some basic shots and info out on the web legit from the developer

    They are treating this as a reboot.

    Other than this juicy bit of info what have you guys been up to - its been years, and while i've poked these forums a few times life has generally kept me away.

    Are there any thieveryut servers still around?

      Hey i just read an article in gameinformer about it. Looks awesome. Really glad squarenix is working on it since i've been really impressed with a lot of the games they put out recently.

      Man i miss thievery. Might just have to try and download it and fire it up for old times sake one of these days. Wish i had more free time on my hands...

        Good to see you again DP, you haven't been on aim in so long I figured your naval career had taken you over completely

        I think when you do get more free time you may find yourself busy with an unpaid job from indus

          To all the fellow TuT players coming out of the wood work, ola! Thief 4, hmmm, I don't have high hopes for it, we'll just have to wait and see.

            There is more on this tidbit than it looks! Or at least that's my take on it.

            So... they first went goth and along the way someone said (lol! nails?). I guess that was the game that was canned early on. Can't say it was a bad call at all when you go on painting black nails! Unfortunatley you get stuff being carried over and the mechanical bow seems to be one of them, because im pretty sure they had to pay for that real life model somehow.

            So.... they are targetting us. Why else would they have to come clean after the original story and use the wording "I can assure you we're huge fans of the original games and we've done our homework to create a game that maintains the essence of the original.”. But they are also targeting consoles... I hope they are prepared to also come clean beforehand and say "look guys, we had to redo some stuff to accommodate the control scheme for gamepads and some level design had to be sacrificed for the sake of limited memory".

            I will cut some slack to these guys because they saw their error (and nowdays it's quite rare to see someone, let alone a group, admit that they were wrong). But for The Builders sake boys and girls, I hope your homework was not restricted to just watching movies out of context or just playing the training mission!

              My bro said this to me the other day.

              Square Enix made Deus Ex: Human Evolution and its a worthy sequel to first Deus Ex... you're not JC Denton but its still a good game in the Deus Ex universe.

              If they're picking up Thief... it might not be truly Garret, but hopefully it'll be a worthy Thief game set in the Thief universe.

                Hey if its better than Thief 3, I'm game. That is true Fix, lets hope it will exactly that!

                  I suppose sooner or later the Garret type briefings will go (TDS killed the videos but kept the voice). But please, no romance type stuff. Revenge is fine to a certain degree, but the essence of Thief is stealing with discretion with a KO here or there.

                  Then again, a reboot could bring back the Burricks and get rid of the undead

                    Sooooo, let's see........
                    • Viktoria (now a normal human person) will now play Garretts' wife. Always on the scold against his lack of money for the rent.
                    • Garrett will be have a companion, a friendly burrick called Belch.
                    • Belch can be used as a distraction to guards (Awww wook at the wittle burrick wurrick - says Benny).
                    • Belch can also have his stomach gasses expelled on command (even from a distance by shouting as long as Belch is visible to the player), these can be used (with fire arrows) to create for a mine like explosion - Belch's skin is tough, so takes no damage with this.
                    • The hammers and other such factions (including the trickster) have been removed, only the city watch, the baron and the barons superior guard remain (and of course the nobles and plebs of The City).
                    • As the story progresses Garrett falls further into the underworld of the city, meeting all sorts of unsavoury characters including the notorious "47".
                    • The open world policy of the game allows you to make choices as the game progresses (ala Dishonored). One such decision will show just how much of an anti-hero your Garrett will become in the final end sequence - do you set up a contract with 47 against Viktoria (do you even have the funds!).
                    • To make the game more controllable, this time round you will have swing directions. When in melee combat swipe your mouse in the direction the overly large UI arrow shows, to send a killing blow to your already easy to defeat enemy.
                    • As the game progresses, depending on how evil your Garrett character becomes, some guards may run in fear the moment they spot you hurtling out of the shadows at them, sword in hand, screaming your chosen (in the main menu options) warcry.
                    • As with Thief: Deadly Shadows, you will be able to visit fences to sell your loot, these can then be used to purchase food (to keep your health up) and goth makeup (for that pure thief look we know so well).
                    • There will be more domestic creatures, cats, dogs, etc. The streets will also have pidgeons, crows, ravens and the like. While on rooftops, Garrett must be careful for one flock of birds could give his location away, or make him fall off a roof !

                      i quite like the idea of a skyrim style thief game tbh, just 1 HUGE city, and you can visit pubs/taverns etc to pick up information about local rich people to rob. a main quest line that goes all over the city and secondary mission's.. like a underground thieves guild Garrett could rob if he felt like etc... coop thief would be fun on that if you die the guards drag you away to a prison, other thieves can free you

                        Actually, TDS did have cut scenes, but they were mismatched, and did not have a flow like the original cut scenes did. I had to look on youboob to verify my failing memory. Chief, you need to get with the Dev's and tell them how it should be handled, you take over. *And Taffers across the land rejoiced.*

                          In this day and age, they'll probably name it Thiefcraft. The game now will be;
                          • collect 10 loot to craft some metal
                          • combine with (obtained or shop bought) bottled burrick gas
                          • a small amount of glass

                          = 1 gas mine

                          • 1 wood = 4 arrows
                          • combine with small amount of glass
                          • combine with water (holy or otherwise)

                          = 4 water arrows

                          AHHH I'm getting nightmares already.

                          I said this when it came out but imagine Mirrors Edge - done in the Thief universe. Running over rooftops, swinging rope jumps etc. Picking up lewt along the way, acrobatic Garret! Would be a quality game.

                            BA, the cutscenes I mentioned were pre-mission ones with Garret doing his trademark monologue about what lies ahead. TDS only had a wall of text and the monologue.

                            A Burrick attacking Benny could actually be something that would work out, there were many humorous moments in the previous games and seeing Benny hopelessly trying to convince his comrades that there is a Burrick in the house targeting him is also part of what a Thief should be.

                            To sum it up, all we want is a game that offers a good taffing experience.

                              Worried?, surely your not the only one... we'll have to wait and see - but were going to know early on if it's everything one could fear or not.
