    THE CITY WATCH 2014







    Welcome Taffers!

    This is the City Watch thread, 2014.
    We've had to make a new thread because the previous one is now stuffed full to the brim and first page could no longer be updated.
    We've carried over all the news since January 2014 into this new thread.

    Here you will find all the latest news, tweets, interviews and articles relating to THIEF and Eidos Montreal.
    Please keep this thread clean. To discuss any topic of news in greater depth, check out the related threads on the board.

    A summary of all news and updates will be maintained on the first page of this thread, so nobody needs to trawl through pages of older news to keep up with what is happening on the cobbled gas-lit streets.

    Enjoy!

    Master Thief Edition coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4?


    Square-Enix is ​​preparing a new edition of Thief for next-gen consoles with all the DLC included?

    According to rumors, the reboot of Thief could go on PS4 and Xbox One with a special Gold Edition called Master Thief Edition, containing all the DLC released so far.
    Lacking official confirmation from the publisher, so we are waiting for confirmation or denial, in any case, a special edition of the game seems very likely, remains to be seen if it will arrive on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

What a difference a year and 6 million sales overall makes.

    The company also cited cost reduction initiatives and exchange gains on the ever-weaker yen as factors contributing to a greater net profit than projected. Square Enix expects now to record a profit for the year ending March 31, 2014 of 6.6 billion yen ($64.9 million). That's up a whopping 88.6 percent from the company's minimum estimates, and a significant 10 percent up from max figures.

    We should learn more about Square Enix's finances when the company releases its annual report, but the picture looks rosier than this time last year. After deciding to reform its AAA business in the wake of weak sales on console, the publisher continues to be pleased with the progress of Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn. Registrations surpassed the 2 million mark following last month's PS4 launch, and in today's statement Square Enix called out the MMORPG's software sales as "strong."

The scope and adaptive take on stealth is dense and complex, and even may impress those who wrote off this new take on a classic series.

    Polygon: What a difference three months can make. The last time we played Thief was at an event in October in New York. The build was riddled with problems. At the time, developer producer Joe Khoury said that while the game was "feature complete," it still needed a lot of polish. Recently, we had a chance to check out a more polished version of the game during an event in Sydney. The differences were striking.

    Oh, and be sure to check out the Thief in the Media and Gameplay Demos playlists on YouTube, I'm adding all the video previews and interviews as they come out.

    Importance of AMD TrueAudio in Thief explained by Eidos Montreal
    by Mark Tyson on 13 January 2014

    AMD interviewed Jean-Normand Bucci, Technical Art Director, Square Enix who confirmed that audio is "taken very seriously," within the upcoming Thief game coming to PCs, current and next gen consoles this year. He explained that the sound in the game is used for immersion and for "many different gameplay aspects".

    Game Informer interview
    Thief's Storied Development May Have Helped The Game In The End
    by Ben Reeves on January 07, 2014

    Eidos-Montreal's Thief reboot has had a long and colorful development cycle. Some people have worried about what that means for the finished product, but the team doesn't think its process has been unusual.

    During an interview at CES 2014, we chatted with Thief's technical art director Jean-Normand Bucci, and he gave us his view of the game's development. "I have been in many different companies and many different projects and I don't see what happened with Thief as being all that different from other games. The advantage of an iterative process like this is that it brings new blood and fresh ideas and people to the project. I think that the team we have right now is the best team we could have to make the game we want to make."

    Bucci also went into detail about what the team has been able to add to the game over the last year of development. "We have been listening to the fans and everyone to make sure that we address and enhance the game. We've worked hard on the AI very recently. We've added some addition audio and visual cues to help aid players to know if they are hidden or know how they can interact with the world. Guards now have a different patrol logic if there are multiple guards or a single guard. They work together more or dispatch each other to check on different areas of the environment. Internally we know we've had a lot to do, but we're happy with how the game has come along."

    New ME and new DE... both series are big favourites of mine. If I see something new about The Witcher 3 and probably hear something about Thief's future, I'm going to be happy with this year's E3.

    Thief is unlikely... Even if they were planning on a sequel, they wouldn't go into it this soon after the first game's release.

    However... I really hope that Arkane will be releasing some information about the Dishonored sequel this year! If they don't it up and fix the few problems I had with the first game (i.e. more focus on stealth, less on combat)... it will be glorious. Maybe it can satisfy some of my Thief cravings I'm also hoping for a next gen Borderlands game, although that's more unlikely.

    I agree. The most we could hope for at a later date (not at E3) is DLC content.

    Is it normal for games to wait this long before announcing DLC? I would have thought we'd have heard something by now, if they were considering it...

    Digging into rigging: Mixamo's character service explored
    The long-serving Mixamo character service has just undergone its latest update. CEO Stefano Corazza gives Will Freeman a look at what it’s offering artists and developers

    "I think David Hubert, cinematic director for Eidos Montreal, said it best when he spoke at GDC about how his team is using Mixamo. His company values Mixamo’s online animation collection for getting motions onto placeholder models to work out timing so that planning around animation resources are allocated with confidence, not guesswork."

    FYI, latest patch from Nixxes:

    Originally Posted by Nixxes
    Hello everyone,

    We have just made public a new version of the PC version of Thief, v1.5 build 4158.5 This patch will be applied by Steam automatically when you next start the game. If your game does not update, please restart the Steam client.
    This patch will address the following issues.
    • Added AMD Mantle Crossfire support, it can enabled on from the configuration dialog on startup.
      We recommend players to update their AMD Catalyst Beta driver to version 14.6 or higher when using AMD Mantle.
      http://support.amd.com/en-us/kb-arti...dows-beta.aspx
    • Added optimized defaults for Display and Graphics options when playing on specific Intel Graphics hardware.
    • Improved GPU memory management on AMD Mantle.
    • Fixed issues with quicksave and quickload.
    • Several minor bug fixes and performance improvements.


    While we expect this patch to be an improvement for everyone, if you do have trouble with this patch and prefer to stay on the old version we made a Beta available on Steam, v1.4 build 4133.3, that can be used to switch back to the previous version

    Step 1: Go to your STEAM library and select Thief in your game list
    Step 2: right-click on the game and go to properties
    Step 3: go to the Betas tab in the properties menu
    Step 4: select version_1.4 and press ok.

    This will set you back to the original released version of the game.
    We will keep monitoring for feedback and will release further patches as it seems required. We always welcome your feedback!

    Master Thief Edition coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4?


    Square-Enix is ​​preparing a new edition of Thief for next-gen consoles with all the DLC included?

    According to rumors, the reboot of Thief could go on PS4 and Xbox One with a special Gold Edition called Master Thief Edition, containing all the DLC released so far.
    Lacking official confirmation from the publisher, so we are waiting for confirmation or denial, in any case, a special edition of the game seems very likely, remains to be seen if it will arrive on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
