Gimme the Loot: Watch 17 Minutes of Thief
Garrett the Thief is lurking right around the corner with a February 25 release date. But why wait a whole week when you can watch his latest snatch-and-grab right now?
Eidos Montreal has released yet another gameplay trailer, this time a complete, uncut, 17-minute playthrough of Thief’s first mission, Lockdown.
Obviously some minor spoilers ahead, but nothing serious. If you choose to proceed, here’s the setup:
After a heist gone wrong, Garrett is trying to make his way back to his hideout in the clocktower. Along the way, he happens upon a jewelry store. Garrett being who he is, you can imagine what happens next…
If you’re the curious, PC-building type, Eidos Montreal said it did the playthrough on the following setup:
CPU: AMD FX 8350
Graphics: AMD Radeon HD 7970
Hard Drive: 125GB SSD
OS: Windows 7
Much has been made of Thief’s troubled development, but as Eidos Montreal finally nears the finish line, I can’t help but think the results look terrific. A Thief reboot that actually plays like the classic. Looking forward to finding out next week.
