Eidos-Montréal®, a part of Square Enix Europe and the award winning studio behind the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution®, today unveiled THIEF™ for PlayStation®4 - a reinvention of a franchise that helped define an entire genre of games.
Time has moved on. Power has shifted. New greed replaces the old.
But to remain free in The City of chains - that is still the greatest prize.
First I stole to survive... then I survived to steal.
I am one man; I hear your secrets, see your hidden truths.
I am the shadows, the dark and deadly, the velvet night. You will not see me coming.
I am Garrett... What's yours is mine.
There 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.
THIEF is a reinvention of a classic franchise that allows players to take on the role of Garrett, THE master thief. When the city that created and defines him is threatened, Garrett must step from the shadows and uncover the truth before his world is torn apart forever.
"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," said Stephane D'Astous, General Manager, Eidos-Montréal. "Our goal is to deliver the fantasy of being Garrett, THE master thief, and we're building this game around that core experience."
THIEF will be available in 2014 for PlayStation®4.
