Eidos Montreal debuted a new story trailer for their upcoming trans-gen first-person stealth title and series reboot, Thief.
The trailer (embedded below) shows protagonist Garrett, the master thief, haunted by the death of his lifelong friend, Erin—an event in his life that might be what one elderly female describes as what’s “changed” in him, compelling him to save The City from whatever darkness threatens it. In this case, a supernatural threat, the trailer strongly implies.
Thief is a reboot of a series started with Looking Glass Studio’s (where Ken Levine got his start) Thief: The Dark Project, a 1998 windows PC first-person stealth game. In order to appeal to longstanding Thief plans, Eidos Montreal’s reboot will allow players to fully customize the UI, stripping it down to nothing or cluttering their screens as they see fit.
Thief is set to launch on PS4, Xbox One, Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 February 25 in North America, February 28 in Europe.
