Edios-Montreal have today announced Thief which will be released for the PlayStation 4, PC and other next-gen consoles in 2014.
Thief comes as a reinvention of a franchise that has helped define an entire genre of games. The official description of Thief is as follows:
“Here is a rising tide of fear in The City. Hatred saturates every stone and whilst the rich prosper, the less fortunate face misery and repression. Ravaged with sickness and famine, they wait for something to change.
Into this shadowy world steps Garrett, THE master thief in a first-person adventure featuring intelligent design that allows players to take full control, with freedom to choose their path through the game’s levels and how they approach and overcome each challenge.”
Exclusive coverage and developer interviews can be found in the April issue of Game Informer. Users can also visit GameInformer.com/thief throughout the month for more coverage. Stephane D’Astous, General Manager, Eidos-Montreal stated:
“We’re handling a precious gemstone with THIEF. Fans remember the original games very fondly and we want to preserve that essence – which we have excellent experience of doing at Eidos-Montréal – whilst also introducing THIEF to a brand new, next-generation, audience, Our goal is to deliver the fantasy of being Garrett, THE master thief, and we’re building this game around that core experience.”
