It’s been a long time coming, but Eidos Montreal has finally announced that Thief has gone gold. To celebrate, they’ve released a 6 minute trailer that breaks down exactly what we can expect when we finally get our grubby little hands on the much-anticipated title.
Truth be told, THIS is the trailer they should have released months ago. With the footage that’s shown, Eidos does an absolutely fantastic job of highlighting just what made this series so great all those years ago. They also really hammer down the fact there’s no set way to play through this game. If you want to be a heavy handed thug looting the city, that’s on the table. However, I don’t think I’m alone in saying that I let lose just the tiniest hint of a girlish squeal out when I realized that I could play through the game without having to take a single life.
After seeing this trailer, I’m completely onboard with the Thief hype train. When it comes down to the actual thievery mechanics, at least, it’s shaping up to be everything I had hoped Dishonored would be.
We’ll be able to see how it all pans out when Thief releases on February 25th. Until then, check out the trailer below and leave your thoughts in the comments section.
