  • Announcing: Nightblade

    A guild of cunning thieves sneaks their way into an opulent mansion, filled with the riches that only generations of power can acquire. The mansion's private guard patrol within, seeking out intruders and relentlessly hunting down those that their efforts reveal. Every shadow is a potential hiding spot, every noise might be a clue to the presence of thieves. Every second lost can mean the difference between victory and defeat.

    Nightblade is a total conversion for Unreal Tournament 3 featuring stealth-based gameplay. A team of thieves must use stealth and skill to obtain loot and escape, while a team of well-armed guards must protect the loot and hunt down the thieves. Both teams will have a variety of equipment at their disposal to aid in their task. Thieves will use water arrows to put out sources of light, extending the darkness within which they can hide. Guards in turn will use flares to relight torches and search the shadows for thieves.

    The initial plan for Nightblade is an updated version of ThieveryUT's Thieves vs Guards gametype, making use of resources from Thievery, Nightblade when it was targeted at UT2004, and over time new resources generated specifically for UT3. We will be experimenting with a number of gameplay changes and improvements as well.

    So it is time once again for me to hop on the emotional roller-coaster of Nightblade anticipation? In other words, we can regard this as an official announcement?

        Does this mean we will be hearing a release date soon? Or does this mean "It's not cancelled, it's still being worked on."

              look, the About link button is highlighted when your on the Jobs page. -- +1 for pointing out dumb things?

                I have a few questions as well:

                * Does NB still has the Jesper Kyd soundtrack?
                * Will NB support widescreen?
                * Is there actually a "night blade" storyline / campaign?

                  I'd say perhaps it would be best to leave a "campaign" mode open for user created campaigns like AS. Then focus on TvG for release.

                        I mean...
                        What ups and downs did NB go through. From 2 to 3 teams and back again to 2. Then from ut2k3-->ut2k4-->Ut3
                        Whenever it comes out it will be SWEEEEEEEEEEET!

                            UT3 you mean, right?
                            Based on a true story.
                            The prequel.
