A pre-E3 trailer from Eidos Montreal introduces us to “Garrett, the master thief”.
The official blurb begins with, “Some steal to survive, Garrett survives to steal”. And with that, the video showcases some of the tools he uses to remain in the shadows and avoid detection. Moving on the video then also shows the weapons needed for Garrett to make an escape.
These are of course only a few of the arsenal that will be provided to us in the game, with each offering to be used in specific scenarios.
The announcement of Thief was made earlier this year and instantly caught everyone’s attention. Eidos’ decision though to replace the original voice actor of Garrett was a bit harsh. Our favorite thief has been turned into something out of a darker version of Assassin’s Creed but that’s just my personal opinion.
Eidos did explain though why the actor had to be replaced. A new agile and younger version was needed in order to perform the necessary stunts for the many motion-capture scenes the game is going to feature.
Similar to Dishonored, Thief will feature multiple approaches to each task in the game, including an option to play the entire game without killing.
The game has been confirmed for a release in early 2014 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
