Square Enix has teamed up with Eidos Montreal; award winning studio behind Deus EX: Human Revolution, to bring us a new title Thief. Thief has no release date as of yet but will be available for High-end PC’s and next generation consoles.
Time has moved on. Power has shifted. New greed replaces the old.
But to remain free in the city of chains – that is still the greatest prize.
First I stole to survive… then I survived to steal.
I am one man; I hear your secrets, see your hidden truths.
I am the shadows, the dark and deadly, the velvet night. You will not see me coming.
I am Garrett….What’s yours is mine.
Thief is about a city where a tide of fear is rising and hatred completely engulfs everything. As the rich prosper, getting richer, the not so fortunate are faced with misery. People are being consumed with famine and sickness. Along comes Garrett, a master thief. Gamers will have the ability to take full control and will be given the option to choose their path throughout the game allowing you complete control of both how you approach and overcome challenges.
Stephane D’Astous the General Manager of Edios Montreal had this to say;
“We’re handling a precious gemstone with THIEF. Fans remember the original games very fondly and we want to preserve that essence which we have excellent experience of doing at Eidos Montréal, whilst also introducing THIEF to a brand new, next-generation, audience. Our goal is to deliver the fantasy of being Garrett, the master thief, and we’re building this game around that core experience.”
