Thief is the highly anticipated reboot of a much-beloved series of games which started in that golden year of gaming 1998 with Thief: The Dark Project.
Whilst smack in the middle of the emergence of first person perspective shooters, Thief was unique in its stealth orientated game-play. Refreshing at the time, and copied often in the interim.
This new game is due for release on Feb 27th 2014 on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PS4 and here is the blurb to accompany the new trailer:
The new trailer created using in-game visuals entitled ‘THIEF: CHANNELING OF THE PRIMAL’ reveals the moment when Garrett and Erin discover that the artifact they were hired to steal is at the center of a bizarre ritual; a ceremony conducted by a secretive group of robed men who intend to harness a mysterious energy called The Primal.
As time passes The City begins to change. The population begins to change and so too does Garrett himself. It becomes clear that the force of The Primal is far greater than anyone could ever imagine.
