We knew that Thief wouldn't be released until early 2014, but Square Enix provided an official date for us today to make it set in stone. February 25 is the day we return to Garrett's shoes and steal everything that shines prettily in the moonlight. Of course, that's quite too simple a premise for a modern triple-A title like Thief. As this newly released "Uprising" trailers shows, there's much more to this story than meets the eye.
Looks like the setting of Thief seems to be on the verge of the Industrial Revolution, where simple machines are beginning to put people out of work. This newly created wave of poor and homeless aren't too happy with their community's leaders and revolution is budding. Whether Garrett becomes directly involved in the events of such a revolution, or simply uses them as cover to steal some epic loot, well... I suppose it's unlikely to be a surprise, right?
Pick up Thief starting February 25, 2014 for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.
