Shannon and Diego got to spend 3 hours with Thief at a recent Square Enix event.
Thief is out on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on February 27th.
Thief is a game series with a huge old-school following. The main question I had when I sat down to play the game was how much it would appeal to todays gamers who want more action. The thing I noticed immediately with Thief is that it’s extremely unforgiving. You will die a lot.
We got to sit down with the game for about 3-4 hours and nothing was off limits. The new Garrett is an extremely interesting character and one which you will want to know more about. He gives off a very roguish and mischievous vibe and this definitely adds to the atmosphere that the developers were aiming for.
When I first got into the game I realized that the developers and artists had really nailed the much darker vibe. The games environment is extremely dark all over but still has a ton of personality. Every house that you enter really tells a story and that’s one of the most important things that I noticed. You genuinely care about the lore and want to learn more about it. One of the most important things to note is that the same studios created the game among current-gen and next-gen consoles so hopefully all versions should run perfectly.
