A 17 minute playthrough trailer for the upcoming Thief has been released.
Showcasing the game’s environments and gameplay, the playthrough trailer walks viewers through the very first mission of the game titled “Lockdown”. The mission sees Garrett, the protagonist, escape to his hideout in Stonemarket Clocktower but on his way steals from a jewellery store.
In a press release, Square Enix and Eidos Montreal said: “We chose to share this specific section because it allows us to demonstrate many of the strengths of the game in a short condensed mission without spoiling any of the plot.”
Thief follows Garrett as he returns to his hometown, “The City”, after a long time away only to find the town is ruled by a tyrant called “The Baron”. As the city is infested by a plague, Garrett must use his stealth and steal from the rich whilst using the plague to his advantage.
The game will be released on 28th February 2014 for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
