  • Thief III: 3rd Person View

    Taken from a Gamespot article:

    '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.'

    The 3rd person view sounds optional, that's good.

    They also confirmed the title 'Thief: Deadly Shadows'

    http://www.gamespot.com/pc/action/th...s_6086854.html for the article, it has some nice new screenshots...

    I don't know why you'd want to play it in 3rd person, but whatever. Those new screenshots look great!

      What do you call the view in MGS? That was like hybrid top down/3rd person. Best. View. Ever. IMHO. showed more map, made gave more sight, realistic or not. Just wish Snake could jump!

          was that the question i asked? I just wondered the view, i know bjing wouldn't be too easy in third person that we have now. probly not even in the MGS style view. i just wanted to know what that view is called.

            I'm honestly starting to get bad feelings about T3... especially the part about it coming out on X-Box, because putting almost any game on a console screws it up...

            At least it'll look good from what I can tell...


            Oh yeah, and 3rd person, IMO, will dumb down the game because, as we all know, it's hard as hell to KO or frob in 3rd person and will only promote a more confrontational type game (DM)...

              Those third person shots just have an awesome feel to them...

              I mean, look at them. In two of those pics Garrett is at the side of the screen. What's that all about?

                  Thief 4: Assassin.

                  Forget thieving, by the time T4 comes out, if it comes out, it'll prolly be mostly about killing or KOing than thieving itself...

                    Hmm the models still dont look good. But gameplay is much more important. What engine is it btw?

                      I have a bad habit of switching to 3rd person in TUT while thieving.It takes a bit to get used to,but you can BJ and frob stuff(at least doors ) pretty easy.Besides,in third person,you can get a better view of the area,and check out how awesome you look.

                      It's Cinematic Action View(TM)!You can probably do more with it than just swivel around you.

                          Duh... its the Unreal 2 engine.
                          The issue of the 3rd person view has been out right from the start. It WAS at the time the priamry option but they changed their minds.

                          BTW, and for anyone who cares. NVIDIA killed the Dark Engine on their last driver. Maybe we should go back to reverse programing liek they did with Doom.
