Square Enix and Eidos Montreal today released a new trailer for the upcoming title, Thief. The trailer will be the first from the ‘Stories from the City’ series that showcases the rich tapestry of Thief, its City and its characters.
Titled Basso’s Gamble, the story focuses on Basso, a former boxman (safe-cracker) turned fence, who uses his vast connections to The City’s underworld to organise 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.
The series of trailers will ultimately tell 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’.
Thief will release in Australia on 27 February 2014 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
