WTF indeed. But why have you picked Thief thread to link this?

It was a sequel- hence the ridiculous Thi4f name it originally had- but hasn't been for a while. It's a reboot, officially now.

For the observant there are obvious signs of it previously being a sequel though, the brothel is modelled on a building from ThiefDS (Keeper Compound), your girl protege was almost certainly envisaged as the girl from the end of TDS as well. But officially, it's a reboot like the newest Tomb Raider.

One of the earlier focussed gameplay videos looked really terrible, but I REALLY would like to play this early. Well, maybe I'll wait for some of previews/early reviews.

It seems the developers heard the screams of longtime fans regarding that early trailer. They put in lots of options so you can turn off the "accessibility" stuff if you want. Will it be enough to save the game? Dunno.

I thought I would be playing X:Rebirth and/or Divinity: Original Sin when this came out but Divinity got delayed and Rebirth needs to be born again before it's worth playing. Maybe I'll finally pay full price for a game again?

I'm sorry, what? Trying to decipher what you mean makes my head hurt.

Watch the video from 2:00. There is an action taken and going on. It is not decided because the ingame situation demands it but to showcase an option that exists in the game.

Usually, this happens when a gameplay is bloated with options to make the game look cool, these options having no relevant existence otherwise. They are just cosmetic effects.

In any game, you can list all the possible options left to a player, break them down and then assess the quality of the gameplay. Poor gameplay is bloated with irrelevant, meaningless, useless options that only came into existence to add content for the sake of adding content.

Grey seems to be the new "master colour".

I remermber Thief 1 to be rather brownish in colouring.

I think you know me good enough to be able to imagine all by yourself what I'd write about this video.

“ Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction.“ (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

Seems some stores already started selling the game.
Supposedly retail console versions can already be bought.

And I need to wait 8 more days for my Steam release…
