Thief 2 HD mod is due out later this week
Thief Gold's HD mod is, along with the unofficial TFix patch, now a standard part of my elder Thief install. It's something of a no-brainer for the game's fans—offering a noticeably more detailed set of textures without warping the game's deliberate aesthetic. Hence my pleasure when, on a recent trawl through ModDB, I discovered that the team behind the mod are giving Thief 2 the same treatment. Even better, it's due out later this week, on August 8th.
There's little in the way of info, but the mod's creators have listed the following features:
- Added HD textures for all original missions
- Added new vegetation
- Added new water and lava textures
- Added new fire flames
- Added new Ape-Beast HD skin
- Added Zombie HD skin
- Added new skies
In addition, the mod's ModDB page has a selection of screenshots showing this spruced up sequel in action.
