Aville of TTLG has clued us in to this great news. :)

Check it out... (http://www.thief3.com/main.html)

:D This gets me so excited. Beautiful art, haunting music, assassination. YEEEHAH.

12th Feb 2004, 08:07
*lol* YES! I've been sitting here listening to the music for like an hour now. The City wallpaper is now on my desktop, and the concept art is so gorgeous I want to make a montage of it. :)

*shivers* The plot is sounding better all the time... Garrett finally re-integrating himself with the Keepers only to get to close too the wrong secrets. The faction of balance itself, divided and menaced from within...

great website, nice look, very Thief-feeling to it...but what's up with the wallpapers guys, those of us with monitors over 15" in size don't particularly want 1024x768 or 800x600, how about some 1280x960, 1280x1024, and 1600x1200 please? I want to adorn my desktop with Thiefy goodness, but not by dropping it to a resolution I wouldn't use on a 19" monitor.

well, on the bright side, there appears to be enough additions to the game to actually make it hang with the first two (unlike dx:iw..p.o.s. that is). can't wait to see my first enforcer.

but i wanna know, why is the dagger sitting in for the sword? if poop hits the fan, will the dagger be good enough as a weapon?

and why the flaming **** is xbox magazine being quoted in the press section? "the original stealth game is back and better than ever!"....am i missing something? were the first two thief games released on xbox? should i be concerned that pc gamers are once again getting the shaft?

WOW, as far as my first impression goes, it really puts in the elements to retain an unique Thief atmosphere.
It might be even better and more intense.

Lovely website.
Im getting pretty excited for this game.

Yay! I had finally stopped checking T3.com a couple of weeks ago. Looks like I should have persevered just a little longer.

Beautiful! Great site. Kudos to Eidos and ION.

Did anyone notice the part entitled "action gameplay" under Features?

"Breaking and Entering, Stealing, Sabotage, Evasion, Espionage, Combat, Assassination, and Setting up ambushes."

Sounds like Thief may have more action options for those who can't deal with stealth. Heck, first time I read the section I thought it was talking about a different game.

What has me worried is:

See that PC CD-ROM? Looks like we'll be getting low resolution textures and low detail models. :(

Those new screenshots look good enough to me.
(Even if one of them belongs in the 'artwork section').

My my, some of those spooky pics are just too scary.

And the sketch of the large building which seems to be a map, contains the following words in the top left corner:

<b>"A river connects to a larger body of water"</b>


12th Feb 2004, 22:26
Yes, but there's still no water on the screenshots... :(

12th Feb 2004, 22:26
yeah, the site is awesome, but what is that character in the "game info" section doing anyway? pulling grass?? :D

and please don say that they will do a deus ex of theif 3... i mean "oh no, the bad evil keepers! eeek!!!!" im tired of all that crap, i mean, the keepers are good guys, cmon!

Keeper Assassins

"Glyph altered beings" that "communicate telepathically" ?

Ok, but how many screenshots for T1 & T2 had water in them?

It's nice to see the site active. This game is going to make a nice addition to my collection. :)

So far it's looking pretty thiefy. :D

12th Feb 2004, 22:46
hey, i just saw that on the gallery page you can make the crows fly away by hovering the mouse over them.
and on the community page you can tunr off the torches by hovering and turn them on again by clicking on them :)

and is there SOME way of always having your signature show??

12th Feb 2004, 23:12
Valnar, I agree. I have a 1600x1200 desktop. What about larger sizes? I am joyed to see the website is finally up. I have been waiting for it for more than 2 years. The "Website coming soon" was quite annoying. Ah, Thief, Garrett we have been through a lot. I can't wait until Deadly Shadows to come out, but I will as long as its to ensure a quality sequel. It seems as it will thus far.

Very nice! This site has got my enthusiasm level back up again. My only minor complaint with what I saw was that I thought the Hammerites looked too much like droids. They looked very cool--just not that much like Hammerites. And I'm delighted to see that the noisemaker arrow has made the cut into the new game. Yay!

yeah, the site is awesome, but what is that character in the "game info" section doing anyway? pulling grass??

Haha, I was wondering the same thing. It's either a pagan ritual, or the guy makes a living off selling nice looking clumps of vegetation. Now, wouldn't that be an interesting character :eek: :cool:

13th Feb 2004, 22:19
Hmmm....I also have a 19" monitor but I'm wondering if the wallpaper size has anything to do with the Xbox limitations again? At least they did get larger than 640X480! LOL Ta and Good Hunting!

Well, as people were discussing on TTLG, it looks like there is an underwater city. Two of the T3 website pictures have a giant (diving?) helmeted man with a trident--that may be a statue, seaweed in the background, and one has fish swiming. Also look at the first AIM picture. A fish girl? Then look at the shape of her/its head and the shape of the head of the silhouette figure in front of the waterfall on the left.

So the rumor that there will be no interactive water may have been a joke.:D

Just saw this info from the website after weeks away....thumbs up ! I can't wait ! :D
