'Thief: Deadly Shadows' (Xbox/PC) Goes Gold

Garrett finds himself without allies, standing alone between the city and the forces that would crush it. Will his skills be enough to save the dying city? Can he survive betrayal, assassins, and war in the labyrinthine city streets? Will he destroy or be destroyed by the evil he awoke? And finally, what must he do to get what he wants most of all: to be left alone plying his trade as the city's greatest ... thief?

“Thief: Deadly Shadows brings the Thief gameplay to a whole new console audience without sacrificing the elements that made the originals such fan favorites. The addition of a fully-supported third-person mode, to supplement the traditional Thief first-person view, adds a whole new dimension to gameplay,” said Warren Spector, studio director at Ion Storm. “Add to a cunning and robust AI system, a lighting and shadow system that dynamically effects stealth gameplay, an audio system and sound implementation that constantly amaze, as well as graphics that are, at times, astonishing. And there you have Thief: Deadly Shadows. Plenty for me and the team -- and players --to be excited about!”

Thief: Deadly Shadows places you in the role of Master Thief Garrett, the quintessential anti-hero that steals from the rich and keeps for himself. In Thief: Deadly Shadows, Garrett finds himself assisting the Keepers, the secret society that trained Garrett in his youth. He is tasked with preventing a prophesised Dark Age from coming into fruition. Thief: Deadly Shadows was developed by Ion Storm, creators of the critically-acclaimed Deus Ex series.

Thief: Deadly Shadows will continue the Ion Storm tradition of open-ended emergent gameplay the studio is famous for. The freedom to choose a unique play style is what sets Thief: Deadly Shadows apart from any other game further immersing the player into the adventure. Thief: Deadly Shadows features a powerful physics system, startlingly smart AI, enhanced character modelling and animation, a groundbreaking sound propagation system and state-of-the art lighting and graphics for which Ion Storm is famous for.
