The lights are on
Our recently announced Thief cover story is loaded with details and imagery, but there are two screens you haven't seen anywhere else. Be sure to click on the images to see them blown up in full detail.
The screen above shows Garrett doing what he does best. This ornate bottle is one of the many valuable items players will scout out and steal throughout the game.
This shot provides a wide view of the House of Blossoms, the lavish brothel that Garrett infiltrates during the demo that we saw for the cover story. Notice all of the dark corners to hide in and tempting valuables to grab.
If you missed it, check out our Thief cover reveal, and be sure to return to the Thief hub for new stories and videos all month long.

Ohhh... Those look nice!
Hmm........ not to excited about the graphics, but hey, work in progress.
This is awesome.
Nice looking screens, although a little brighter and livelier than I expected. I'm assuming this is just from a well-lit portion of the game.
I think there is too much light and too many people in these shots to find this in the same vein as a Thief game. Garrett works best when he's avoiding people, not trying to sneak as closes as he can to them. Sure he has been in some brightly lit areas before, but only out of necessity and not for very long. This feels like their trying to make him stealthy in that he can walk around quietly but can go wherever and do whatever without being noticed. Until I see some actual gameplay, I'm not holding out much hope.
It looks great! I think I might have to keep an eye on this!
Ah, Thief, how I've missed you. Welcome back buddy.
these look promising. the lighting looks impressive. I don't see it mentioned which system these were taken from. assuming PC?
I get the feeling you guys have known about this for a long time, I seem to remember an article about how you guys were talking about how great a sequel would b
