‘Thief’ comes into the light with its first trailer

ThiefMere weeks after Eidos Montreal unveiled the first look at its game Thief, formerly known as Thief 4, the developer has followed up with the first trailer for the game. Thief won’t be out until next year, which means that it is being designed specifically for the next-gen consoles as well as PC – it has already been officially confirmed for the PS4, as well as “other next-gen consoles.” Unless there is another console on the way – which would shock the Hell out of the entire industry – that specifically means that it will be coming to the next Xbox. This is one of the few games that has not only embraced its next-gen development, it has not shied away from discussing the capabilities of the new hardware. Unlike several other titles on the way that will be released on PS4 and the next Xbox, Thief is one of the few games that we know of, that will only be available on the next-gen, with no plans to release a port for the PS3, Xbox 360, or even the Wii U.

The trailer is brief and made up of cinematics (even if the graphics are being run using the in-game engine), so there isn’t much to gleam in the way of the next-gen power. Instead Eidos is highlighting the tone, which is moody and dark. Check back for more on the game in the coming weeks.
