Thief Pre-Order = Bank Heist Mission
The good news is Eidos-Montreal is bringing back the classic First City Bank mission from Thief 2: The Metal Age. The bad news is you’ll have to pre-order the new Thief in order to play it.
In a press release, Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal today announced The Bank Heist mission as a pre-order incentive for Thief. It’s described as a “true homage to the Bank mission in Thief II: The Metal Age,” and will challenge players to infiltrate the heavily guarded Stonemarket First Bank, snatch the Star of Auldale, and get out alive.
Here’s what the original First City Bank mission looked like:

My, how times have changed. Looks sharp, and after rekindling my love for sneaking in Dishonored, I’m looking forward to becoming Garrett once again.
The Bank Heist will be an in-game mission that Eidos and Square are describing as “exclusive” to pre-order customers. However, the safe money says it will also make its way to the rest of the world via a DLC pack. If you want to play it without waiting, pre-order Thief before its February 25 launch.
