Thief Gold's HD mod
is, along with the unofficial
, 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.
