And it’s about as dark and stealthy as you’d expect. No gameplay here, just eye-candy – and one notable difference. Stephen Russell won’t be reprising his role as the voice of Garrett, and fans of the Thief franchise are already up in arms about it – sound familiar?
Drama aside, it’s great to see Thief returning, whatever form this numberless game takes.
As Game Informer just revealed, the Thief series will be rebooted in 2014 on PC and next-gen consoles. Rumours of a sequel in the widely revered stealth series have been swirling around for a while, now, but Eidos Montreal’s decided to start afresh.
Series hero Garrett returns to the Gothic, industrial metropolis known simply as the City to steal any and everything that will make him richer. Unfortunately, the City is broiling with social tension as it is ravaged by a plague and lorded over by a political tyrant known as the Baron.
So, Garrett returns (is anyone else getting a Raziel vibe from the above picture, though?) and it looks like they’re not messing with the setting too much either. Let’s just pray that they leave those goddamn moss arrows out of this one.
