Thief is the reworking of the classic games series Thief. This stealth game has been developed by Eidos Montreal, and published by Square Enix, so becoming the fourth release of the famous series. Of course, you meet Garret again, our beloved master thief, and with him you will visit a Steampunk and Victorian fantasy world with a dark atmosphere.
You will visit a Steampunk and Victorian fantasy world with a dark atmosphere
Being far away from his hometown for a long time, in this release Garret comes back to "The City". The Baron rules The City and does nothing about the plague which infests his town. Rich people do not suffer as they live in wealthy surroundings, but poor people do not have the same good fortune. Our protagonist will try to exploit this fact to his favor as he knows that poor people will revolt if the seed of chaos is planted.
However, some changes have been implemented in this reworking, which have nothing to do with gameplay, but with other aspects instead. For instance, Quicktime Events have been removed from the story since there were just a few of these in earlier games, and swimming levels will not appear in this installment as the developers got rid of them. They excuse themselves by saying that if the protagonist got wet, he will probably die because of the coldness of the city, and they didn't want him to freeze to death.
As a thief, you must be stealthy
As previously mentioned, this series is based on stealth and walking around unnoticed by the city. Shadows of this Gothic city are your allies while playing, and at your disposal you will have a little icon in the screen that shows you how visible you are. However, if you are caught, you can still defend yourself, but it is better that you remain unseen. A great advantage is that Garret is very light, so this way he can pass through obstacles and barriers with ease and without being noticed. Vaulting, scaling, climbing or leapingare some movements you can perform throughout the story.
You will have to carry out some missions which consist of stealing some objects. These missions are provided by Basso, and they are the capital-J jobs of the story. This way, challenges such as steal a small pocket watch or a golden hand mirror will appear during your missions. These jobs are spread throughout the open city and you can find them as you explore the story.
