With the long awaited Thief reboot just a few short days away, Square Enix has released a launch trailer which wonders about ghosts in the midst of a city-side revolt. The game looks great — even better on PS4, where it runs at 1080p (Xbox One is at 900p) — though if you’ve been paying attention, that shouldn’t be all that surprising.

The highly anticipated Thief reboot is almost here. It’s slated to release at the end of the month, so to keep your appetite for doing dark deeds in the… dark, we’ve been gifted with six minutes of brand spanking new gameplay footage from the upcoming game. If you’re not feeling the hype for this, here are two things that may remedy the problem: for starters, this is coming from Eidos Montreal, the team behind the fantastic Deus Ex: Human Revolution. If you’re still not there, watch this.
I’m not completely sold on the new Thief reboot. It looks stunning and I’m a fan of the more simplistic, back-to-basics approach, but it has failed to really wow me like many of the other games we have to look forward to next year. This new trailer that was recently released showcases a little more of the game’s story, including some brand new gameplay footage. It looks good, but something is still missing for me.
Check it out and feel free to share your thoughts on Garret’s next outing in the comments.
Yes, Garrett, I did miss you. If you ever go away for that long again, I will destroy you.
The long awaited and often rumored Thief reboot will be at E3, and if Eidos knows what’s good for them they’ll make sure their E3 presence includes some actual gameplay. Even without in-game footage, it’s always nice to see more Garrett, with his thief-y voice and badass composite bow. I’m sure the game will suck countless hours from my life when it releases on next-gen consoles in 2014. Until then, might I offer you a CG trailer? Check it out after the break.
That long-rumored Thief sequel has finally been made official, thanks to a reveal by Game Informer. Contrary to previous reports, it won’t be called Thief 4. Instead, this will be a reboot that will go by Thief. No awkwardly placed 4? I’m okay with that. Unsurprisingly, it will be a next-gen game, as Square Enix plans to release it for the PS4, PC, and “other next-gen platforms” in 2014. More after the jump.
I thought for sure Thief 4 would be announced at E3 last week, so imagine my surprise when the expo came and went without even the slightest of nods toward a game I am so anxiously looking forward to. We know it’s been in development for four years now and has had multiple resumes and various LinkedIn profiles hint at it, but still no word. Now we can add a little extra fuel to that fire with a demo reel from lighting and compositing artist Eric Wong that has 30 glorious seconds of steamy thief-in-the-shadows action.
I loved the crap out of Thief: Deadly Shadows, especially the terrifying Shalebridge Cradle level where you had to get around a long abandoned orphanage-turned-insane asylum, brimming with these creepy creatures called Puppets. Thief 4 has been in developement for several years now, but since it’s official unveiling in 2009, the game’s been unusually silent [insert silent thief joke here].
Thanks to the Internet however, we might have some new information on the game. According to some info gleaned from various LinkenIn profiles, Thief 4 will use the popular Unreal Engine 3, and include some sort of online mode. Head past the jump for more details. READ MORE
