Thief – Stories from The City – Part 1 – "Basso's Gamble":
Thief is scheduled for a February 25th, 2014 release for the PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Read on for the announcement.
Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal, the award winning studio behind the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution today released the first trailer in a new series of stylized videos that focus on the rich tapestry of THIEF; its City and its characters.
Each trailer in this new series tells the story of The City from the perspective of a different character in THIEF's narrative describing what life is like in the broken, repressed City that is being ravaged by the evil Baron Northcrest and the mysterious sickness known as ‘The Gloom’.
The first trailer focuses on Basso, a former boxman (safe-cracker) turned fence, who uses his vast connections to The City’s underworld to organize thieving jobs for Garrett. He owns an intelligent, but bad tempered magpie called Jenivere who delivers messages for him. Garrett might consider himself a loner, but Basso is the nearest thing he has to a friend – and whether he readily admits it or not; he rather likes the fellow.
THIEF launches on February 25, 2014 in North America on Windows PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
Garrett, the Master Thief, steps out of the shadows into the City. In this treacherous place, where the Baron's Watch spreads a rising tide of fear and oppression, his skills are the only things he can trust. Even the most cautious citizens and their best-guarded possessions are not safe from his reach. As an uprising emerges, Garrett finds himself entangled in growing layers of conflict. Lead by Orion, the voice of the people, the tyrannized citizens will do everything they can to claim back the City from the Baron's grasp. The revolution is inevitable. If Garrett doesn't get involved, the streets will run red with blood and the City will tear itself apart.
