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.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
