Nothing is safe from the world's greatest thief in this gorgeously dark gameplay trailer for Eidos Montreal's Thief.
To say the wait for a new Thief sequel has been long would be a disservice to the term decade. In the time since we last saw our shadowy protagonist Garrett, a generation has come and a new one is about to be ushered in. Fortunately, Eidos Montreal has been crafting this new entry with the upcoming next generation in mind, and you can really see just how different the experience will be with this latest footage.
While the core concepts of Thief remain the same, there are plenty of new tricks and mechanics in play. Combined with the massive boost in presentation powers, this latest iteration in the franchise just might set a new bar for the stealth genre. We're still more than a few months away from enjoying Garrett's next adventure in full, but this trailer has us excited to start slinking through the darkness in the quest for valuables of the priceless variety.
Thief is due out on PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on Feb. 25, 2014.
