The lights are on
Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal will be sending Garrett out into the streets in just under four months. Today, the pair have released the first narrative-focused video in the Stories from the City series.
This trailer is narrated by Basso, safecracker turned fence. He’s anti-hero Garrett’s main point of contact, and someone who has seen the city deteriorate under a sickness known as “the gloom.”
You can check out the video below and read up on our hands-on impressions from New York Comic Con. You can also read more about the story in our Gamescom 2013 interview with narrative directer Steven Gallagher. You can also see all of our Thief coverage from the April 2013 issue here.
This iteration of Thief looks incredible, and Garrett looks cooler than ever. I'm sure that this game will be a hit among fans of dishonored and elder scrolls. I get that vibe from it.
The hero of this game looks so goddam awesome but the devs are real douchebags to only show his hands while in game... Brilliant!!!
That voice... Was lame.
That dialogue... Lame.
The best thing about this trailer was the end...
Dunwall, is that you?
Meh, from what I've seen, this doesn't look nearly as good as the previous entries in the Thief series. It's like it's trying too hard to be some iteration of Dishonored and not Thief. I'll probably rent the game first, before writing it off entirely, but I don't plan on buying this.
