This highly specific video takes you in depth with a very specific aspect of the upcoming game.
Thief, Eidos Montreal’s re-imagining of the classic pioneering stealth franchise, is due for a release soon now, and the above video is one that goes rather in depth into the PlayStation 4 version of the game, walking us through the game’s hardcore mode, as well as the mind bogglingly extensive graphics and gameplay customization options that it provides.
Thief will be Eidos’s third revival of a classic IP- before this, they revived Deus Ex with the seminal, critically acclaimed Deus Ex Human Revolution; last year, the classic franchise Tomb Raider was brought back in the reboot of the same name (which is being re-released this year as Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition). Both these revivals were largely successful, among the critics, among the fans, and of course, commercially as well.
It will be interesting to see if Thief, which has made some drastic changes to the series’ core fundamental design, is met with the same kind of success when it releases.
