Thief – New Screenshots and Stories from The City – Part 1

Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have released the first trailer in a new series of videos, focusing on the rich history behind Thief’s The City, and its inhabitants.

Each trailer tells the story from the perspective of a different character, describing what life is like in the City, which is being ravaged by the evil Baron Northcrest, and the mysterious sickness known as “The Gloom.”

The first trailer (the one above) focuses on Basso, a former safe-cracker turned fence, who uses his vast connections to The City’s underworld to organize thieving jobs for Garrett. 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 is scheduled for launch on February 25th 2014 (North America), on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Don’t forget to get back to us, as we’ll be preparing our own final verdict on Thief’s first reboot.
