Thief 4 - Preview @ PC Gamer

PC Gamer has a preview for Thief 4 fom it's PC Gamer UK Magazine.

We won’t be able to make everybody happy,” says Daniel Windfeld Schmidt. He’s the lead level designer on Eidos Montreal’s Thief relaunch, and he’s right. I recently played the first-person stealth game, and some people aren’t going to be happy.

This Thief game has third- person climbing sections. It makes minor use of quick time events. It has ‘Focus mode’, which gifts master thief Garrett with limited time-slowing combat abilities. It has context-sensitive controls that mean you can only jump when the game says you can jump.

Unhappy yet? I’m not. After playing the game for over an hour at this year’s E3, and putting all my concerns about the above to Schmidt, I’ve settled on being cautiously optimistic. Thief has changed, but not in the ways that matter.
