Square Enix and Amazon Launch Thief Mod ContestJon Ledford |
In order to celebrate the revamping of one of the stealth genre's most prominent series, Square Enix and Amazon are going to be hosting a mod contest.
Collaborating with Square Enix and Amazon in making this mod contest happen is AMD and Broken Glass Studios (who should be known to Thief fans as the creators of The Dark Mod). Fans are going to be able to submit either a short video of a new Thief mod in action or a pitch for a mod they would like to see happen. Either way, the point should be trying to substantially alter the gameplay mechanics of Thief while trying to keep the concept controlled and ongoing.
Members of AMD, Eidos Montreal, forum members and Broken Glass Studios will vote and decide on one grand winner from each category. The two winners of the contest will get a top-notch gaming PC from AMD, a Steam code for every Square Enix game on its market, an Amazon Kindle DX and an all-expenses paid trip to E3 2014 with Square Enix. Modders have until April 14 to apply. Thief is expected to come out on Feb. 25 for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
