Square Enix has announced that Thief will be released on 25 February 2014 in the US, and 28 February in Europe.
We haven’t exactly been the most optimistic about the new direction that Thief has been taking but I daresay we’re all pretty eager to play it, simply on the off-chance that it really does live up to its predecessors. And, quite honestly, 25 February is sooner than I expected to see it. Hmm.
In addition to this release date, we’ve got a bit more detail on the plot as well as a brand-new trailer. The game revolves around the growing conflict between Baron Northcrest, the big bad One Percenter, and Orion, the charismatic Voice of the People. With revolution brewing in the streets, the City is a dangerous place, even for a master thief like Garrett.
The new “Uprising” trailer follows.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, getting very angry at people in Dota 2, or playing basically anything that’s not a hardcore simulation or sports game. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
