Square Enix and Eidos Montréal the award winning studio behind the Deus Ex: Human Revolution, unveiled THIEF for high-end PC’s and next generation consoles. THIEF is the reinvention of a franchise that helped define an entire genre of games.
There is a rising tide of fear in The City. Hatred saturates every stone and whilst the rich prosper, the less fortunate face misery and repression. Ravaged with sickness and famine, they wait for something to change. Into this shadowy world steps Garrett, THE master thief in a first-person adventure featuring intelligent design that allows players to take full control, with freedom to choose their path through the game’s levels and how they approach and overcome each challenge.
“We’re handling a precious gemstone with THIEF. Fans remember the original games very fondly and we want to preserve that essence which we have excellent experience of doing at Eidos Montréal, whilst also introducing THIEF to a brand new, next-generation, audience,” said Stephane D’Astous, General Manager, Eidos Montréal. “Our goal is to deliver the fantasy of being Garrett, the master thief, and we’re building this game around that core experience.”
If they can do as good a job reinventing Thief as they have Deus Ex, this is going to be a game to wait for. Hopefully, more tidbits from E3.
