At the end of this month, Thief will be hitting both current and next generation consoles, and now there is a 6-minute “101” trailer that gives you the ins and outs of every facet of the game. Needles to say, it all looks rather sweet.
The video’s description states the following:
“In this feature trailer, you will learn everything you need to know about Thief, the upcoming stealth-action game from the studio that brought you Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Out soon on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, the game takes full advantage of Sony’s next-gen graphics and hardware to deliver a tactile and immersive experience like nothing you’ve felt before.”
“From the cover of darkness, use specialized arrows to manipulate your environment in your favour, dispatch guards without a sound with your blackjack, and outsmart all the security measures in your path. Whether you are a ruthless predator or silent as a ghost, you will do everything it takes to get your hands on the most coveted treasures the City holds.”
What really impresses me about this tutorial trailer is how intense the gameplay looks. I think there needs to be more first-person stealth games, and it really looks like these guys are getting it right with this one. You have a lot of control over your character with plenty of customization options and stat boosting. There’s also a variety of play-styles at your disposal, so you can play the game pretty much any way you want to. This all sounds very good to me!
Thief will be released on February 25th on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Check out the 101 trailer below.
