DualShock 4’s Light Bar Gets Dimmer to Indicate How Hidden You Are in THIEF

DualShock 4 is a controller that will add to the experiences of PlayStation 4 games. Stephane Roy, The Producer of the new game THIEF (which revives a well received franchise by the same name) indicated some of the ways that this controller will be used in the game today. One way THIEF uses the DualShock 4 which is expected to be seen in many games is that the touch pad at the top / center of the controller will allow players to navigate menus in a more intuitive way.

However, a not-so-common way the game will integrate the DualShock 4 is to make the light bar at the top of it get brighter and darker based on how stealth you are at any given time. For example, if you duck and pin to the wall against the shadows, the amount of illumination on the controller will decrease and you’ll be able to get a good feel for how hidden you really are from the enemies before it’s too late. Motion control will be used for the bow and arrow action and you can catch a lot more next-gen information regarding the PlayStation 4 version of the title at the Full Interview on PlayStation Blog here.

Thief 4 aka THIEF is expected to release on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox ONE, and Windows PC on February 25, 2014 in North America and on February 28, 2014 in Europe and Japan. The game is being published by Square Enix and developed by Eidos Montreal.
