Let me first introduce myself: I'm 26 year old, german and got a bachelors degree in marketing with emphasis on customer psychology. Oh, and I love video games - especially the Thief-Series. I want to give you some insight on my thoughts concerning the development of the new Thief.

I saw the gameplay on youtube as well as the comments of the developers. But I also saw the comments of previous Thief fans on this. Let me tell you that those guys are very concerned about the new action elements, even if they are optional. In thisDestructiod Article (http://www.destructoid.com/thief-s-focus-ability-will-change-how-stealth-works-247848.phtml) people in the comments are concerned over the removal of magic. You will rarely find someone to appreciate the changes. The next one is this youtube video with Thief gameplay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHGJ33Co_cw). The reactions in the comments are the same: People don't want the proposed changes like implemented 3rd person mode or the ability to spot enemys through walls. You can google it yourself and you will find similar reactions everywhere.

What you are doing WILL lead to low sales. I won't go into depth with sources but I'm rather surprised your marketing department would think of this as a good idea. Your positioning is baffling. You basically scare away your recent fanbase (see the links as examples) to gain a misty (propably the wrong word:)) and undefined new target group. This is not a smart move because a generalized target audience will be harder to get than a already existing user base.

Let me give you some examples of titles that tried similar things: Dead Space 3, Dragon Age 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Splinter Cell: Blacklist and to some extend Hitman Absolution. Publishers tried to force action elements into the gameplay which where deemed unneccessary by their core-fanbase. You can go to metacritic on these games and watch the user score - it's average (SC:BL) to subpar (Hitman Absolution) to underperforming (DS3, DA2). Many Games sold a solid amount (SC:Conviction) but where'nt satisfying due to high production costs.
Hitman Absolution on the other hand sold pretty good I assume but basically scared away the fanbase for future iterations of the series. Maybe this isn't entirely true so let it put me this way: You watered down the Hitman brand. Your marketing guys sure know what a good brand is: unique and recocnizable. But with every game I listed above the developers/publishers tried to force action into the game and therefore changing its coremechanics. This softens its uniqueness and pushes it more into the white-noise area where things are getting undistinguishable. Ubisoft saw that problem after SC:Conviction and tried to get back to the brands strength: Stealth. In SC: Blacklist they focused more on the stealth part but didn't dare to completely abandon the action concept (Ghost, Panther and I dont know the third variant).
Dead Space 3 did a VERY good job on scaring away its fanbase. Therefore EA ceased any further iterations of that series. It was again the action part that screwed it.

Like Dead Space the fanbase of Thief will never be as big as COD and BF fanbase. But if you concentrate on your brands' main strenghts you can stay profitable (of course the most important thing for any company). But if you try to desperately long for exactly this ominous peoples attention you will weaken the brand, scare off your already existing fanbase and have a very high economic risk. Do you really think your average COD fanboy wants to sneak? Do you think your fanbase does want to look through walls?

Here are two rules for strong brand from this (http://www.brandchannel.com/brand_speak.asp?bs_id=211) website:

Meaningful: a strong brand is relevant and compelling to its target customers. Some brands create desire; others meet existing demand—either way, the customers you care about have to, in turn, care about what the brand delivers.

Differentiating: a strong brand gives the business a distinct advantage over competitors. Moreover, the difference must make a difference—your target customers should perceive the difference and think it is important.

hi every one.

I am Korean. I live in Seoul which South Korea's capital.
Sorry for using forum . I do not know where to write .
I can't speak English well. I think a lot of grammar and vocabulary is wrong .
I believe that you understand though .
Because you do not know Korean ^ ^

In 2014, many people look forward to coming game titles about ps4, xbox one.
Game " Thief " is expected to be released in Korea .
Korean subtitles will not release.
"THIEF" South Korea game user has a very interesting game .

We do not need Korean subtitles about sports game, just action game,,,etc..
I know. Korea is a small market in world.
However, game as "Thief" Korean subtitles is needed. why? story.....
Game "Thief" is a game created by the hard work and sincerity.
But a lot of Korean game users do not understand the exact story and producer intention of the game.
we want to play !
?
If released Korean subtitle,
We the game can be fun .
Therefore, the producer will be more people to give pleasure .
Also can sell more titles in Korea.

"gta5" was sold more than 10 million in Korea .
It is a Korean subtitles "gta5".

The answer is what does it for ?
Somebody please give me answer .

I did various searches on Google for how to redeem it but nothing comes up.

Anyone know exactly where to go or does the site literally not exist?

Thanks in advance for any help.
Log in to square enix and register the product code for the app just like you would when registering the game i just did it on mine. and then it redirects you to the google play download screen

Just redeemed my Thief preorder soundtrack download code... to find that only HALF the soundtrack exists in the ZIP file.

The soundtrack is supposed to contain 20 songs (as seen on SumthingElse's and Amazon.com's track listings) but only contains the first 10.

Since the preorder offer didn't say "get your free half-soundtrack for Thief" (and, in fact, was listed as a "$9.99 value", which is the same price as the full soundtrack on Amazon.com and elsewhere), I can only conclude that someone didn't upload the correct file to Square Enix's servers.

Please rectify this ASAP so that we can receive what we were promised. Thank you.

The controls in Thief won't work,the look stick on my control does not work (won't turn the camera around) though zoom works fine clicking it,and the pad works fine in other games for looking with it. Plus trying to change the keyboard keys won't work either...they either won't click and change though I can move around in them,though I can't go back have to min the game and then go back in to get out of the control set up page,or I can only set them to number 0 anytime I click on one.

Playing on PS3, yes, i had the same choppy sound too,with the music and Garrett's voice-over in the first section of the game. Then the sound completely went dead while following Erin over rooftops. A reboot fixed the issue, hopefully its ok now.

Having an issue with the prerendered fmv cutscenes in Thief on the PS4, they are really choppy as if the framerate has dropped in them. Such as the cutscene where erin falls through the skylight during that weird ritual, or the cutscene where Garret is hidden in the cart going into Stone Market, that cutscene was so laggy that the lip syncing of the character's voices wasn't matching up. Obvious theres some problem with the FMV cutscene playback framerate that's causing it to lag, please fix this!

So if I can find its save file location maybe I can replay every mission and play as I want. Thanks

I have found a progression bug in the game that stops me completely from progressing. on the PS4 on Thief difficulty in chapter 4 at the massive safe with 6 dials I am only able to use the left 3 dials and cannot use the right 3. I know the code and know exactly what must b done to grant access to the dials however, even with visual access to all 6 dials only the left 3 are accessible. I have restarted the checkpoint, restarted the chapter, uninstalled and reinstalled, and gotten a brand new copy of the game and the bug persists. restarting the entire game from the beginning is my only option at this point. please give us an update to fix the bug should anyone else report the problem. without being able to progress a game will lose all its value instantly for many people.

I bought my copy of Thief from Steam and so far the game wont even load. I have checked the steam forums and a lot of people are haveing the same issue and so far no one knows a way to fix it. I also noticed that of the three cd keys that I have none of them look like a standard cd key. The are French Comic Book, English Comic book, and Soundtrack. Its almost like I wasnt given the main cd key for the game. Is that new kind of cd key or do I have the right idea? If thats not what the problem then I am stumped because I have done all the things I have seen posted in the steam forums to try to get the game to work and its still wont load. Thanks in advance if any one knows what the deal is.

I was hoping someone here could answer my question regarding my Thief key.

I preordered the game here on the square enix site in the middle of January and in the mail i got afterwards they said they're gonna send me an second mail telling me where to download my game + cd key and everything but I still haven't received anything yet.

Since I'm living in Germany I know the official release of the game here is set to February 28th so...basically I still have a whole day to wait for the second mail but I'm still a bit worried about this.

Is someone else still waiting for more information from square enix or is it just sad me? ;)

Because sometimes BUT not always and your subconscious is looking to find fault with a particular game?
I have never played a Thief game and not 4 a lack of trying, the onlys I know of are, Thief the Dark Project (1998) , Thief ll the metal age (2000
), Thief Deadialy Shadows and The recient Thief (2014) . To answer your question, NO i have personaly not. I think allot if gamers wanted this game 2b Dishonored and when it wasn't all of sudden gamers started finding "issues". That's my 2 cents

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

You just go on to the Square Enix website (here) and register your game with that code. If you did, you should have gotten an email saying to log into google play with your square enix credentials. I only know because it took me hours to figure out how to do it myself. try going here while logged in: http://na.square-enix.com/us/thief-companion-app
Now, that being said the companion app it gives you is from Google Play, for Andriod. There is a free app for ios, but it doesn't give you the map. It says I need to pay for the full version of the app, but there doesn't seem to be a full version. I'm enjoying the game, but the companion apps should have been ready to roll the day the game came out for both iOS and Android. There is a free app for iOS, but it's useless as far as help in the game goes

I hope for you sake and others they patch/fix the issue?

Here is somthing intresting, may be nothing but any game that spends 5 yrs in development ? Makes you wonder what's really going on with this game. BUT when any developer picks up a title from another publisher, case in point Alien Colonial Marines. You may be right I will have to some digging? I have an idea where to look.

Same for me. If I start the game, nothing happens and I get a quick "synching" notification after a few seconds. If I try to start the exe directly, I get an 0xc000007b error, which means there is something wrong with DLLs. I ran it through Dependancy Walker and it said it conflicted with /couldn't find several x86 DLLS. I guess this is some sort of incompatibility between the game and Windows 8.1 x64.

I had the same Problem with the recent update of Rome 2, however I could circumvent that by directly starting the exe instead of the launcher. Is there a way to do the same in Thief?

Yeah, I also decided to restart. I think it's a good idea to not quit the game until we are outside of our hideout like in the city than manual save the game. I had quit the game after chapter 2 and I quit the game when I was in my hideout, then came back to it and that's when it glitched. I'm playing on Xbox One and of course we can't back our saves up, since you're playing on 360 you should back your save up frequently.

Let me first introduce myself: I'm 26 year old, german and got a bachelors degree in marketing with emphasis on customer psychology. Oh, and I love video games - especially the Thief-Series. I want to give you some insight on my thoughts concerning the development of the new Thief.

I saw the gameplay on youtube as well as the comments of the developers. But I also saw the comments of previous Thief fans on this. Let me tell you that those guys are very concerned about the new action elements, even if they are optional. In thisDestructiod Article (http://www.destructoid.com/thief-s-focus-ability-will-change-how-stealth-works-247848.phtml) people in the comments are concerned over the removal of magic. You will rarely find someone to appreciate the changes. The next one is this youtube video with Thief gameplay (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHGJ33Co_cw). The reactions in the comments are the same: People don't want the proposed changes like implemented 3rd person mode or the ability to spot enemys through walls. You can google it yourself and you will find similar reactions everywhere.

What you are doing WILL lead to low sales. I won't go into depth with sources but I'm rather surprised your marketing department would think of this as a good idea. Your positioning is baffling. You basically scare away your recent fanbase (see the links as examples) to gain a misty (propably the wrong word:)) and undefined new target group. This is not a smart move because a generalized target audience will be harder to get than a already existing user base.

Let me give you some examples of titles that tried similar things: Dead Space 3, Dragon Age 2, Splinter Cell: Conviction, Splinter Cell: Blacklist and to some extend Hitman Absolution. Publishers tried to force action elements into the gameplay which where deemed unneccessary by their core-fanbase. You can go to metacritic on these games and watch the user score - it's average (SC:BL) to subpar (Hitman Absolution) to underperforming (DS3, DA2). Many Games sold a solid amount (SC:Conviction) but where'nt satisfying due to high production costs.
Hitman Absolution on the other hand sold pretty good I assume but basically scared away the fanbase for future iterations of the series. Maybe this isn't entirely true so let it put me this way: You watered down the Hitman brand. Your marketing guys sure know what a good brand is: unique and recocnizable. But with every game I listed above the developers/publishers tried to force action into the game and therefore changing its coremechanics. This softens its uniqueness and pushes it more into the white-noise area where things are getting undistinguishable. Ubisoft saw that problem after SC:Conviction and tried to get back to the brands strength: Stealth. In SC: Blacklist they focused more on the stealth part but didn't dare to completely abandon the action concept (Ghost, Panther and I dont know the third variant).
Dead Space 3 did a VERY good job on scaring away its fanbase. Therefore EA ceased any further iterations of that series. It was again the action part that screwed it.

Like Dead Space the fanbase of Thief will never be as big as COD and BF fanbase. But if you concentrate on your brands' main strenghts you can stay profitable (of course the most important thing for any company). But if you try to desperately long for exactly this ominous peoples attention you will weaken the brand, scare off your already existing fanbase and have a very high economic risk. Do you really think your average COD fanboy wants to sneak? Do you think your fanbase does want to look through walls?

Here are two rules for strong brand from this (http://www.brandchannel.com/brand_speak.asp?bs_id=211) website:

Meaningful: a strong brand is relevant and compelling to its target customers. Some brands create desire; others meet existing demand—either way, the customers you care about have to, in turn, care about what the brand delivers.

Differentiating: a strong brand gives the business a distinct advantage over competitors. Moreover, the difference must make a difference—your target customers should perceive the difference and think it is important.

So? Are you saying is more 4 the hardcore gaming,definitely not a game for the fanboys. But what about the "heavy gamers" you know the ones that try and try 2 play say 15 games at a time? I tried play 2 games at the same time? And boy did I get lost lol! Totally unrelated game BUT you did mention the COD fanboys, so would that go for Titanfall which is basically COD w/ mechs.

I agree w/ the devlopers Don't want2 to scare of the fanboys cause I am guessing 80-90% of their revenue? I am sure you would know the actual percentage ?

So what does that say about the trully "Hardcore" ;) it's either we adapt which i hate, but it is better than not gaming at all. So according to what your saying that goes for any tired franchine?

And the 3rd varrient was "Assult" for Blacklist w/was taken from Conviction from fanboy feedback:]

(I believe this is in Chapter Two: Dust to Dust) Anyway, after entering the ventilation you climb to the exit where there is a guard at the corner of the stairs. He gets frightened by the Manakin in the counter,

He in lies the issue.

I cannot jump down from the ventilation unit, I have tried jumping on the guy, I have tried the Left Trigger, Dodging ...even firing arrows. The game refuses to let me leave the ventilation duct.

It was quite similar to the beginning of the area when you can jump on the rope, I can jump on it, but it would never let me get off at the bottom. I purchased the game online line, so I have a digital copy.

What is the solution to this issue?


Cheers,

Bugs that I found very annoying so far:
1) Voices sometimes aren't in sync with the subtitles.
2)Sometimes subtitles are displayed without noise and sometimes they overlap.
3)You go into a room with guards, you quick save when you go in then get spotted while the guards are having their scripted dialogue and then you quick load only to find out that the guards skipped their dialogue and are now patrolling and sometimes they are VERY CLOSE from the spot where you saved.
4)Sometimes when you go from one area to the next the guards in the new area don't move/talk/ do their scripted dialogue and patrol and you have to reload a previous save point.

I find this bugs very annoying as I want to stream/record.

Yes, many issues. I have the PS3 version and so far, the game has gotten very glitchy. I cannot easily switch arrows, I can't tell you how many arrows I've wasted trying to switch from broad to rope, or other arrow. I have to try to switch about 6 times before the arrow I want is actually available. Also, in Chapter 2 when you are trying to follow the body train, the graphics go crazy (screen breaks into triangles, rectangles and bright white lines, all different colors) when I try to use my arrows, focus or anything else. I have to exit the game completely and re-start. Not a good sign. Also the controls don't behave as they are supposed to. Switching arrows or hand thrown items takes many attempts to get the desired one, trying to crouch again takes many attempts before it will actually crouch. Is this a known bug? Is there a trick to selecting arrows or other items? Love the game so far, but getting very frustrated. Thanks for any help!
P.S., Is there someplace I can download the game manual that will show me the controls?

Glitches
1. After I kill someone his audio is not killed.
2.Guards walking on the other side of the wall sound like they are right on top of you(no muffled sound)
3.I can go on forever, but I'll sum it up with this... audio sucks

I had a similar problem, my save file said that the last save was back in March of 2013. Since I restarted the game, I haven't had an issue. I'm on chapter 6 and so far so good. Like I said in my previous post, I think it's best to wait til you're outside your hideout to save and quit the game, it's been working for me. I'd also like to point out that I don't have the latest patch install cause it's 6 GB, so I'm playing offline, not sure if that's what causes it. Did you have the new patch installed when it happened to you?

In other words, Gamestop screwed you. They never told us it was Android only. Live and learn.

Here is the announcement from GameInformer and thus Gamestop:

Pre-ordering the game before it comes out on February 25 gets you the paid version of the app, the official soundtrack (by Luc St. Pierre), and the Bank Heist mission (worth $4.99). The pre-order is exclusively at GameStop [Full Disclosure: Game Informer is owned by GameStop].

No mention of Android vs. iOS.

HI, just got game, followed Erin across roof tops, in through a window to a small room with door on your left that you need to lockpick. Lockpick activity seems bugged/glitched, Can't rotate lockpick, to then use R2. First of the three red circles just flashed with a red line around it and his right hand is twitching slightly in motion with it. Googled it to find several people with same issue who have claimed a refund? Please tell me the game I loved so much first time around and have been so excited over getting again is not that glitchy! Unlocked the one behind the picture in the room with the bird cages/bird lover no problem.

Hi guys,

New to the forum, and I can't believe it's come to me having to ask on here, but.. I've started playing Thief on PS4 but something is making my head ache. I bought the LE version with the metal case from Amazon UK and apart from a few glitchy moments and some dubious sound clash, the game isn't bad at all, My issue is that now I've created a Square Enix account, it's asking for a product Registration Code which can 'apparently' be found on one of the slips or game manual within the box. Now, I have 3 slips in the box, no manual, but 1 is for the limited warranty and safety precaution babble and the other 2 are only about DLC, there's no other code anywhere that would fit the two data field set ups offered by Square Enix on their registration page.

Have they hid it somewhere daft?

Did my game even come with one?

Why has this been the most stressful hour I have ever been through when trying to utilise support for any game?

I ask Google and it throws NSA secrets and Missile Launch codes at me and how to get an elephant into a Sardine can when all I want to know is how to find this Registration Code for my copy of Thief or at least how (if possible?) I go about acquiring one? Surely there has to be a way?

Anyway, that's my issue, I would love to hear from you guys if you can shed even one single beam of light on this for me, and rest assured, any help offered would be received will be much obliged by myself.

Thanks!

Shaun.

First off Thief was looking to be a good game. But once you have play through 4 chapters enjoying the game you don't really feel like starting from chapter 1. That is the issue, I've read on other forums of peoples progress going back to chapter 1. That is what happen to me on chapter 5. I find this bull**** because I don't feel like starting over from the beginning. All other load files have been erased the only load files are for chapter one. What I would like is Square Enix and Eidos to make a product that is not broken. I would ask for a refund of my money but we all know that will never happen. I will not be playing your broken product any longer I will trade your broke piece of **** in for Titanfall when it comes out. You would think that a multi million dollar company could get their **** together but I guess not. Thank very much for wasting my time and my money. **** you Square Enix and **** you Eidos. Have a wonderful day.

It really sucks that I need to create another account that I will never need or use just to play the new Thief game.

And I have to agree to allow Square Enix to put cookies on my computer to complete an account I never wanted.

AND write down/remember another account user name and password and security question for an account that I had no interest in creating in the first place JUST IN CASE some day I may need technical support or need to provide some information to play my game.

Remember the days when you bought a game... and then you played it? And that was it. No need for e-mail addresses or updating console software or creating random gameware accounts.

I was playing Thief4 a couple of days ago. I don't know what chapter I was on. I think possibly 3 or more. I was going on the first mission for the guy Basso introduces you to after getting the ring. Anyway, I started it and I alarmed some watchmen, ran back through one of the zone switching portals, and now my game is back at Chapter 1. I have all of the equipment I had still, but I'm back at the beginning. Any ideas on how to resolve this?

I was getting the network error too but then one time accidentally told it to login before I put in a password and it actually tried to log me in. Tried a bogus password with no special characters and lo and behold it tried again. Tried to login with my normal password, which contains special characters and I got the "Network Error" crap. Went to Square-Enix and changed my password to one without special characters and what do you know? It logged me right in. Wonderful coding guys. I seriously believe this will be my last Square-Enix game. Worse than EA and Activision combined.

I believe there is a glitch with the Smuggler's Map: Eel's End side quest, because the 2 swithes at the waterfall are missing and there's no lever anywhere to expose them. Has this issue been reported and if so will it be fixed in a future update? It's not a show stopper but it would be nice if it worked.

Yes, unfortunately those days are long gone. It's going to get more and frustratiing . Basically the reason they make anything mandatory is so a company can either track you or spam you w/all sorts of deals. I find it an insult , because you're forcing me to a comitment to a game that I may or may not finish?

When it came to Last of Us, last year it was about putting stuff on my ps3 well except the digital manual. I hate anything mandatory but in the end we really don't have a choice? Except to not play said game. And for the record I had to set up 3 Square Enix accounts alone for the FF14 , I ended up playing 1 time.

Hi,

I'm new to the forum. I just picked up Thief friday and when I opened it I was surprised to see that there was no Square Enix product registration code inside of the box. I picked up the PS4 version if that some how helps at all. After opening the game and seeing this I took to YouTube to check out a couple unboxings of the game on PS4. Every game which was unboxed had an advert for the art book and the registration code with the exception of two. One video just had the advert for the art book and the other was like mine there was nothing in the case at all except for the game. Is anyone else's copy like this or are there just an unlucky few? Looks like Square might have messed up in the packing of this game at the factory. Any help with this would be appreciated.

Thanks

There needs to be a patch for the PS3 to fix the severe audio problems.

- People 100 feet away sounding like they are right on top of you
- Someone 2 feet in front of you (Basso for example) sounding like they're talking to you from a mile off
- Extreme audio glitching in the form of constantly dropping out and sounding like you just blew your TV speakers. This even occurs at the menu of the game before you even begin to load a save and play!
- Subtitles that flash across the screen and are gone within 2 seconds
- Lip/mouth movement completely out of sync with the dialogue. A guy will talk for 6-7 seconds, his lips will move for the last 2 seconds, and continue moving after he's done chatting.

All of this occurs both while playing the game and during cutscenes.

When I have my firewall disabled I still get this error.

How do I debug this situation? What Server/IP is Thief trying to access? Is there a port I need to open and forward on my router?

Without a connection I have no access to Leaderboards.

I had a similar problem, but on the xbox one. First in the clock tower, whenever I tried to leave, it just reloaded the tower. I downloaded the update and that seemed to work. Until it happened again after I finished the asylum chapter and it reloaded me right back at the start of it. Replayed it all the way thru, and it happened again. Tried plugging the ethernet cable in and voila, problem solved and the game progressed normally. Probably didnt need the update, being connected to the internet seems to solve all my chapter loading problems. Hope that helps u :)

A lot of people are seeing the same problem. Someone on either the eidosgames forum or the steam forum said they reported it but got no response yet. If you put your back to the waterfall and look up, there's a rope location you can use to climb up to a room. Some are saying that's the final destination. That doesn't explain the switches on the map though.

Yes it is another case of missing assets in the game. There are also 3 missing South Quarter documents, and 2 documents missing from Chapter 4.

If you compare the Eel's End Smuggler's Map to the other 2 Stonemarket Smuggler's map, the images on the Eel's End map are clearly depicting switches or buttons that simply aren't there.

dimmu1313
7th Mar 2014, 22:08
There are several instances where certain game assets are simply not present in the game:


Chapter 4 documents: the maximum possible number of documents is 8, but there are only 6 documents present in-game.
South Quarter documents: there are 16 possible documents per the journal, but there are only 14 documents present in-game.
Sumggler's Map Eel's End missing buttons: based on the images shown on the Stonemarket smuggler's maps, the Eel's End map clearly shows 2 buttons near, in, on, under, or around the waterfall. No such buttons exist in-game.



These issues have been verified many times by many players, and these issues are well-documented on multiple forums for this game, including here at Square Enix, Eidos Montréal, and Steam.

As an avid PS3 player, I truly hoped that the PS4 would step it up a notch, but I'll have to say that "Thief" is probably the worst PS4 game I've ever played--it doesn't even come close to "Dishonored" by Bethesda in PS3. Your game surely seems to steal a lot of ideas and gameplay from "Dishonored"--anyone who has played both can tell. "Thief" is truly a righteous piece of ****. I would be ashamed to have produced such a half-assed game after "Dishonored". The cut screens are janky and stop-and-start. There is no fluid gameplay. The way I figure it, Square Enix and the rest of the "Habs" should just stick to hockey and full nude strip clubs--and even there your girls suck compared to American girls. I'll never buy another game by Square, you guys suck. Thank you very much and and have a blessed day.

I have purchased the companion app for my iPad. I bought Thief for XBOX One thru the XBOX live Store. I did not receive a product key, nor have I for any game purchased on XBOX live. I have a reference numerical code from Microsoft but nothing more.
I called tech support @ Microsoft and @ Microsoft billing. The ticket was escalated higher and I spoke to several different techs as well as a couple of "Senoir Techs".
They all have the same answer. There are no product codes given out with online XBOX Live game purchases. Either I would like a refund or please tell me how to get it to work.
I linked my XBOX Live account with my Square Enix account but still nothing on the companion app.
I also purchase Tomb Raider and several Hitman games thru the XBOX Live store but have not tried to register those before.
Googling shows that there are a lot of gamers with the same issue and no solution.
Please help.

Square Enix finally responded to my support request on this problem. They blamed the Steam Client.

Steam support said that it is most likely a network problem, which makes sense, BUT SE will not provide me with the URL or IP address or Port of the Server that Thief is trying to access. Without that information, it is impossible to debug. It may be a problem with my ISP, but they cannot do any checking, because they don't know the IP Address/port to check.

Steam Client and Thief have been reinstalled twice and the problem persists. It appears to be a Network problem, either with my PC or ISP, but with no network info from SE nothing can be checked.

Does anyone have any more info that could assist with this?

Thanks

same here on PS4, just arrived at that point last night, search for a rope arrow 4 hours and then check the walkthrough on youtube and discovered that its a bug.

hey Dev team, any updates regarding a fix? its kind of ....

Same situation here on XBox One. Talk about a game ruiner. If they can't patch this, then I will likely never play the game again. How could they just assume that everyone would have rope arrows on this part? It seems as if they would have ropes there already. This really blows. Looks like my spring break is going to suck now because I was really looking forward to finishing this game.

Would you like Square Enix's direct contact info? Be happy 2 send it in a PM? You should tell them straight up your not happy !

I would love their info. I'm suffering a potentially game-breaking glitch in Thief and I'm getting more and more pissed by the minute.

There seems to be an apparent glitch in the ancient ruins quest in Thief. At the end of the end of the mission, you are to escape the ruins. to do so, you must use ropes to leave one of the last areas. However, there are no ropes already affixed to the beams, nor are there any rope arrows laying about. Therefore, if you are out of rope arrows, you cannot get out of the room. Please address this issue. It is such a great game, but severe glitches such as these can make gamers take the disc out and never put it back in. :mad:

13th Mar 2014, 09:39
After some research, it would seem that there are supposed to be ropes already attached to the beams. Apparently this is happening on the PS4 versions as well, so it's not limited to XBox copies. Hope they fix it soon. I tried restarting the mission and it still didn't work. Therefore the game can't be completed without a hard fix.

BoogieMan976
13th Mar 2014, 09:41
*UPDATE*
I restarted the mission and ran through a second time. Still no ropes. Needs a hard fix or the game can't be completed. Perhaps just add a box of rope arrows on the crates?

Hi! I'm new here, so please bear with me. I am playing Thief on PS4. I have broken into the Grand Safe and have reached for the Primal Stone Fragment. Then I am told to press R3. When I do, nothing happens. I am stuck at this point, in utter limbo.

I have restarted this section of the game, logged out of my account, completely turned my system off...and nothing. I get the same result every time. I watched a YouTube vid today of a guy, doing this small move, slick as glass...but I absolutely cannot retrieve the shard using R3. Any ideas??? :scratch:

IIRC on PC you take the fragment and that starts a cut scene and then drops you in a different area so definitely sounds like a bug and not something you're doing wrong.

:eek: Sad to say, the problem was my fault. What I did not do, was after pressing R3, I didn't walk forward. This in turn triggered the cut scene. I thought something would happen in a dramatic fashion when I held R3, but no...I had to step into it. Thank you for trying to help! I sincerely appreciate it. I can't tell you just how much I wish it hadn't been my fault, but in a way I'm glad, because now I can co time my game! :wave:

You have to be careful and read the portal information before you proceed.

I know the one you're talking about it says "Start Chapter 1. Do you wish to proceed?"

You obviously did not read it and just pressed square or whatever it is on the xbox to get away. It's your own fault really. I would just do a speed run through the chapter.

I think that they are aware regarding this stupid bug, but since they have cut 24 jobs 1 week after they release the game now its kind of hard to speed the things up. Stupid project management.

Problem solved with no useful help from Steam or Square Enix Support despite my testing indicating it was a network issue.

I have Internet Explorer set to use a proxy sever. Once I disabled that proxy, the Square Enix connection was made. I rarely use IE. I was not expecting that Thief would be using IE network settings.

Agreed. I'm surprised that a corporation the size of Square-Enix has been effectively ignoring problems between both Thief and Tomb Raider Definitive Edition. I purchased both (DL) and had problems with both, and see that no one else is getting any help from their customer service, either. It seems to bode ill for Squenix that there's so little communication or problem solving happening. For crying out loud, pay a good PR person to take care of your managing forum and twitter responses, and someone to facilitate communicating and getting **** done with the developers. At least get back to the people who are having problems and let them know what's up. I'm not one to boycott publishers normally, but I'm afraid these are likely the last S-E games I'll be purchasing unless things change dramatically.

Interesting, I am an old thief player. I have FINALLY gotten my PS3 copy and logged on here to check the players' old and new opinions of the game. After all the marketing fanfare I find the forum is relegated under 'OTHER GAMES' that is a bit annoying given how long some of us have been waiting. Then I see mainly bug and issues posted. Has anyone managed to play the game all the way through out of the box with no issues? (I am also having a few, but I am willing to bet it is me and not the game unless I see otherwise here).

As an avid PS3 player, I truly hoped that the PS4 would step it up a notch, but I'll have to say that "Thief" is probably the worst PS4 game I've ever played--it doesn't even come close to "Dishonored" by Bethesda in PS3. Your game surely seems to steal a lot of ideas and gameplay from "Dishonored"--anyone who has played both can tell. "Thief" is truly a righteous piece of ****. I would be ashamed to have produced such a half-assed game after "Dishonored". The cut screens are janky and stop-and-start. There is no fluid gameplay..

.. snipped...


@ icarrese

Thief is very old. I played it on PC in the early 90's. I suspect that the real issue is trying to re-create what was considered a real gamer's game on a new system with modern and very different mechanics. Add to that the comments I saw during development interviews that modern gamers would not appreciate the slower pace of the old Thief games, and you wind up with a hybrid. You did spend a LOT of time watching and listening to observe patterns and time guards. I personally died a lot. That as just part of the game.

@ Square Enix I found the comments in one interview that modern gamers have a shorter attention span and need constant action a bit insulting to the younger gamers. The underlying implication I took away from that was that newer gamers have neither the patience nor the flexibility in logic to work out the puzzles in the older game. I think rather SE should spend some finding what about the game resonated with the fans and players of the original series and emphasize that, On the up side, at least it is not yet another Assassin's Creed clone.

I've been playing Thief for about two weeks now on the Xbox One. When I first fired it up I was asked to setup a Square Enix account, which I did and everything was shiny. However, after that first day every single time I go to play Thief I get a notice that the Square Enix service/server is unavailable. I've searched high and low and cannot find anything that describes this issue or what to do to fix it. I have full internet access on my One and everything else works without problem. Just connecting to SE. Anyone offer any suggestions?

I'm in the second chapter of the game and whenever I quit in the middle of chapter 2 and return to keep playing, it brings me back to the beginning of chapter 2 and I have to start over again. I notice that the date and time of my saved game on the title screen is an old save date and time. It's like the game is no longer saving when it's supposed to. If I manually save, it works until I leave the game then it's no longer there. I tried finishing the chapter first and when I select Continue, it starts me right back at the beginning of chapter 2. I'm sick of playing chapter 2 already!

Every time I tried to start Chapter 4 it would reload me back to my last checkpoint..
I tried replaying a previous chapter to see if it fixed the issue. But instead of starting the chapter, it reloads me to the beginning of Ector's second side mission (retrieving the voice box). Which I have already completed.
Now upon returning to the city I am placed directly next to the start point for chapter 4. Now when I select to start the chapter it again loads me into the beginning of Ector's second mission.

I've read a lot of other post's with people experiencing the same issue at different points, but nobody has received an answer yet whether this issue will be addressed.

If it helps with isolating the issue I may be able to upload a game clip of the actual issue and post a link to the clip.

But this issue needs to be resolved soon, its quite widespread and could paint a bad picture of Square if its not addressed ASAP

Not an April Fools joke, doubt any company would break their games just for a laugh.. Besides its been going on for days now.. More and more people are experiencing the issue. Myself included. Its happening on PC, Xbox One and PS4 for certain... but unsure about PS3 and 360 versions...

Okay, so I have Thief for Xbox One and it's acting as if I have lost all my progress through the story from yesterday. Not a huge setback in my case, but still pretty annoying. I figured, no big deal, I can catch up. Only it took me to a previous save file in the Clock Tower, and it won't let me leave. Every time I try to travel to the Stonemarket District, it just acts as if it's loading, and then sends me right back to my previous save file at the Clock Tower. Any known solutions? Help is appreciated.

2nd Apr 2014, 20:56
I have Thief for Xbox 360, and mine is having the same problem your's is having. My game auto saved when i entered the clock tower. I go upstairs, watch the cut scene, then when I click X to go meet Basso and go to the next part of the game it just reloads me back inside the clock tower. This happens even when I load my manual save which also happens to be inside the clock tower. Very annoying considering I'm trying to post a walkthrough of the game on YouTube, got three videos published already and now I'm having to waste time and go back and play something I've already played, delaying me from getting to record the next parts of the series. I wish I had a solution but I don't. Since I'm not that far into the game, I'm just going to delete all my saved data and start from the beginning, if that doesn't work, then I won't be playing the game.

Yes I'm at the exact same point. Actually, I had already met Basso and saved just before the start of Chapter 2, yet it threw me back to the Clocktower save and is giving me the same schpiel. Won't let me travel, just reloads the clocktower. Keep me posted if you find a fix please. c:

So I read the steam fix and I can say confidently that it works for PS4, unsure about true PC and xbone. Go change the date to the 4th of April, it's something in the game code (from 30MARCH-3APRIL) from what I read on the steam forums. IT WORKED!

Thief. PS3. 31/3/2014. Have so far been enjoying the game until I was half way through chapter 6 "a man apart" and died. Load last save and was put back to start of chapter. Now just repeatedly takes me back there and wipes manual saves as well. What's going on.. Not happy.:mad:

For those that have a problem with the game starting over and over again at certain points , try this , it worked for Me and let me progress past the point I got stuck.

1 disconnect your internet

2 go to settings and uncheck the automatic daylight savings time box.

3 do a hard reset of your console ( power all the way down )

4 power back up ( without the internet connected ) and go to settings

5 change the date to April the 8th

After that is done , go back into thief and try to save your game again , it should work , it did for me. Make sure you play and try your new save while you are disconnected from the internet. If you do not , it will not work and you will have to go through the same process again. Once you are past the point where you are stuck and have a new save file you can then reconnect the internet.

I hope this helps.. I am playing on the Xbox One , but this may work for others as well..
