Thief “LockDown” Playthrough Released by Eidos Montreal – Garrett in Action

Developers of Thief has released a new walkthrough of the game, they have shown a lot of gameplay in the last few month, but it seems there is more to the game that the developers can show.

This walkthrough take place during the first mission right after the tutorial. Following a heist gone wrong, Garrett’s trying to make his way to his hideout, the Clock Tower. Along the way, he happens to run into a Jeweler’s shop. Garrett being who he is, you can imagine what happens next.

The interesting things to see in this playthrough according to Eidos are:

Playing cat and mouse with the guard in the Jeweler’s Shop main room (starts at 8:20). Oh man. Like I said, I’ve played this game an ungodly amount of hours, but I still get super tense when I get in a situation like that. My hands get sweaty and I just get sucked into the game, so much that I have to put up a little sign next to me that lets others know I’m recording a run. I mean, if there was a fire in the studio, I probably wouldn’t even notice.

Also, chaining a swoop with another action is just great. A well-timed swoop-to-peek feels so right, it just snaps (see 8:40).

The demo of Thief looks absolutely stunning. The game is shaping up to be really amazing and it is set to release for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One February 25, 2014.
