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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
