The first trailer for the upcoming Thief reboot by Eidos Montreal has been leaked ahead of its scheduled release later today, showing off the long awaited return to the popular stealth-action series, described as "a reinvention of a franchise that helped define an entire genre of games." Revealing the first look at protagonist Garrett, the trailer is comprised of what seems to be all cinematic however several of the assets may see themselves in the actual game world.
There is a rising tide of fear in The City. Hatred saturates every stone and whilst the rich prosper, the less fortunate face misery and repression. Ravaged with sickness and famine, they wait for something to change.
Into this shadowy world steps Garrett, THE master thief in a first-person adventure featuring intelligent design that allows players to take full control, with freedom to choose their path through the game’s levels and how they approach and overcome each challenge.
Check it out below alongside some new concept art that looks almost too real. Thief will be available for PC and next-gen consoles next year.
Update: Square Enix officially released the trailer. Our video has been updated.
