This gameplay trailer for Thief ticks all the right boxes


6:00 PM on 10.09.2013



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 night. This new gameplay trailer for Eidos Montreal's upcoming Thief game ticks has all of them and then more.

Whilst there's little actual "gameplay" shown outside of brief flashes, the trailer shows off all the things you'd expect from Thief. Showing a predominantly stealth-based game is a big challenge in a trailer, no doubt, as the best kind of stealth mechanics aren't the type of things that make for an eye-catching video. Still, Eidos Montreal did a fantastic job of reviving Deus Ex and I have faith that team can revive Thief in much the same way.

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...more

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...more

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...more

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...more

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...more

From Software's (Dark Souls) Bloodborne is coming to PS4 in Japan on February 5, 2015.  Given that we expected an early 2015 release for Bloodborne globally, hopefully we won't have to wait too long after that for the North American release. more
