Thief: Deadly Shadows Available May 26th!!
I just received an email from Eidos!

View the game website at:

Some text from the email:

Life is not easy in Garrett's town. Here crime and corruption are commonplace, wealthy nobles prey on the poor and each other, and magic and machinery coexist uneasily. Fanatical priests from the Order of the Hammer seek to exact their version of justice in the name of their stern and merciless god, the Master Builder. Primitive Pagans, worshipers of the ancient Trickster god, seek to return the City to primeval chaos with their strange and supernatural mastery over nature. Each the other's sworn enemy.

Once again, Garrett finds himself without allies, standing alone between the City and the forces that would crush it. Will his skills be enough to save the dying City?


Action Gameplay - Breaking and Entering, Stealing, Sabotage, Evasion, Espionage, Combat, Assassination, and Setting up ambushes.

Cutting-edge Stealth - Hide in the shadows, sneak past the guards, or ambush them from the darkness!

Engage the tension-filled world in either Classic Immersive 1st Person or Cinematic 3rd Person modes; both are fully supported and can be shifted between on the fly during play.

Huge Arsenal of Thievesí Tools - lock picks, a blackjack, arrows with numerous purposes, wall climbing gloves, oil flasks, flash bombs, and a dagger.

"More Freedom Than Any Other Stealth Game"
- GamePro

"More Tension Than Most Shooters Have Ever Been Able to Bring to the Table"

When Thief: Deadly Shadows hits the shelves on May 26, 2004, stealth action gaming will be redefined.

We can only pray that they learned from their mistakes and made a good game and didn't bork the PC version to be a consolized pos. But from what I have seen it seems to have been consistantly good pretty much(no unified arrow system or somthing stupid like that)

The only thing I'm worried about is if the game is full of loading zones like DX. Nothing kills the mood better than trying to sneak around guards and sentries and civilans like LOADING PLEASE WAIT

Good, its coming out soon. I'm looking forward to Spector's fast-approaching forced suicide at the hands of angry gamers worldwide due to the realization that Ion Storm has killed not one but TWO of the best series PC gaming (and, indeed, all of gaming) has ever seen.

Of course, I could be wrong, Thief 3 could rock. Parts of me really want it to, but god damn, after DX2, I don't have any faith in Ion or Spector... This one is on my "wait and see" list.
