Fourth Thief game announced for PC and PS4

New entry in stealth series to come out on next generation of hardware in 2014

Square Enix is resurrecting the Thief property with a new instalment next year.

Developed by Eidos-Montréal, the studio behind 2011’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the game has been confirmed for PC and PlayStation 4, as well as other next generation consoles.

The new game, currently named Thief, is positioned as a reinvention of the franchise, which has lain dormant with the release of Thief: Deadly Shadows in 2004.

The new game marks the return of master thief Garett in a first person adventure that allows players to take full control and choose their own path through the game’s levels, as well as how they approach and overcome each challenge.

Eidos-Montréal general manager, Stephane D’Astous, said the goal for the studio is to deliver the fantasy of being a master thief.

"We’re handling a precious gemstone with Thief,” he said.

“Fans remember the original games very fondly and we want to preserve that essence, which we have excellent experience of doing at Eidos-Montréal, whilst also introducing Thief to a brand new, next-generation, audience.”

The game is slated for release in 2014 for PC and PlayStation 4, though Square Enix adds that it is also planned for other next generation consoles, which is likely Microsoft’s successor console once it is formally announced.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
