Eidos-Montréal has released a new selection of screenshots and concept art of their current project, Thief. These screens highlight segments from a mission at the beginning of the game called ‘Lockdown’.
The oppressed population of the City is ruthlessly enforced by the firm hand of Baron Northcrest that has issued a citywide lockdown to prevent the spread of an unknown illness. Known only as ‘The Gloom’, this epidemic has tormented the citizens and has gripped their minds with crippling nightmares and horrific voices in their heads.
Master Thief Garrett has returned to the City and must reach the Baron’s hideout on the other side of the brutal lockdown. He chooses to infiltrate a nearby jewelry store, which he had overheard, held valuable items. Garrett can’t help but steal a glimpse of what lies inside.
THIEF is due for release on February 25th, 2014 in North America for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
