Details of Eidos Montreal’s next game have appeared on Siliconera, mentioning the appearance of swords and three main characters.

The post itself is vague in specific detail on the setting or genre.

The three main characters mentioned in the Siliconera story feature “a 30 year old explorer” who is in love with someone called Nova.

Nova is apparently in need of saving, apparently, so the explorer and Nova search for an “architect” who can save her. Step up the mercenary, the third main character.

The mercenary is 25 years old and is described as a “dark beauty” and “femme fatale”. According to Siliconera, she’s “happy to help the hero out, but she has her own agenda too. She likes to flirt with the Hero and has a habit of turning on people. The mercenary views “Nova” as a rival and all three characters form a love triangle of sorts.”

The site also has what appears to be part of a script from the game.

It’d be likely this would be Eidos Montreal’s new IP that’s in the works alongside Thief 4 following the release of Deus Ex: Human Revolution last August.

When asked what the platforms would be, Siliconera’s source wouldn’t specify, but said details would emerge shortly.
