Square Enix and Amazon, in collaboration with a host of gaming partners including AMD and the team behind The Dark Mod, today announced the ultimate THIEF mod contest in celebration of the upcoming reboot to THIEF.
Beginning today, the company challenges the THIEF and modding communities to put their imagination to the test.
“Whether it’s creating a new heist for Garrett or reworking a classic level from the series, Square Enix and Amazon are looking for fans to submit entries in one of two categories; either a short video playthrough of a mod they’ve created, or a pitch for a mod they would like to create.”
Once submitted, all entries will be voted on by the community, members of the Thief development team, and members of The Dark Mod team.
One winner from each of the two categories will be chosen and will receive a host of prizes from key partners, including:
– A high-end gaming rig from AMD which includes an AMD Radeon™ R9 290X graphics card
– An all-expenses paid trip to E3 2014 with Square Enix
– Steam code for all Square Enix Games with the matching Prima Guide
– A bundle of game development books on Kindle
– An Amazon Kindle DX
In addition, every entrant to the competition will also receive a free digital version of Thief: Gold (1999) courtesy of Amazon.com.
Closing date for entries is April 14, 2014.
Now the big question is; will the remake of THIEF support mods or is Square Enix trying to take advantage of the first game’s community in order to spark interest for the new THIEF title?
THIEF is coming to PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One and X360 on on February 25th.
