Now that Thief is out, Eidos Montreal lays off 27 people

AAA development works, the large studio tells you. "Yes it is true we've let 27 people go today," its press release reads as you imagine it dabbing crocodile tears with a fan of c-notes. "Unfortunately it's something that ev...

PC Port Report: Thief

The Thief series began on the PC, and it's one of those games that old people like me say has its spiritual home there. So it's no surprise that the new Thief reboot/remake would come under scrutiny as to how well it performs...

Review: Thief

The original Thief was one of my favorite PC games of all time. It was unique in that it completely focused on stealth -- a mechanic that wasn't used often at the time outside of a few select games like the original...

Watch what Thief is all about in this new launch trailer

Thief is almost here, and you can get a glimpse of a bit of gameplay (but not much) from its launch trailer above. As expected, there's tons of looting, sneaking, and swooping, compliments of the master thief and hero o...

Steal everything in sight in this Thief gameplay video

There doesn't seem to be any doubt about it, Thief will certainly live up to its namesake. In this 17-minute video that shows the game's first mission, Garrett gets his klepto on and does his best magpie impression, as ...

New Thief video teaches how to steal in style

The title of this Thief video calls it a trailer, but I'd be hard-pressed to classify it as such. Not many trailers run six minutes, but whatever this is, it remains interesting the whole time. I guess badass thievery a...

Let's look at the customization options for Thief on PS4

We already knew that the upcoming reboot of Thief was going to have lots of customization on PC, but it's good to see the PlayStation 4 (and presumably all console versions) will have those options too. From the start of the...

New Thief trailer shows the death of Garrett's apprentice

Anyone who played the old Thief games might remember Garrett taking on a young apprentice. Apparently, Eidos Montreal doesn't want to have a young thief following him around, because during VGX they released a trailer for th...

The UI and difficulty levels in Thief are moddable

Some of the worries about the new Thief title from Eidos Montreal come from how a studio can make a big-budget stealth game that will appeal to a mass audience. Hardcore fans of the series worry that the game will watered dow...

Feast your eyes on these new Thief screenshots

Thief might be the game I'm most excited about from 2014, so Eidos Montreal knows exactly how to tease me by releasing some screenshots from early in the game. These are all from an initial level of the game called Lockdown; ...

This gameplay trailer for Thief ticks all the right boxes

There's a fairly short list of things that I'd want to see in a new Thief game: water arrows, sneaking past guards, shiny trinkets ripe for the plunder, some casual pickpocketing, and a city shrouded in a seemingly endless n...

The Bank Heist is your Thief pre-order DLC

This Thief demo sees the return of a trusty tool

Thief has been getting a lot of well-deserved buzz since its announcement, not the least of which surrounds its new Focus mechanic. Is it game-breaking, or harmlessly non-intrusive? Well, I'm here to to tell you none of that...

Thief is going to be an exhilarating game

We've already covered Thief and the latest demo we saw was largely the same: go in someone's house and steal their most precious item. Steven Hansen broke down a lot of the mechanics already, so I just wanted to touch on how ...

Thief looks like everything I wanted Dishonored to be

I liked Dishonored a lot, even if it didn’t turn out to be a literal ninja game. What I seem to have liked most about it, though, is its more tertiary elements. I love the fiction behind the world and its stylish, styli...

Thief's focus ability will change how stealth works
