New ‘Thief’ Trailer Showcases Impressive Graphics, Not Much Stealth

By: 10.09.13


So, rumor has it development of the new Thief game is seriously troubled. Is there anything to these rumors? Hard to say, but Square-Enix is clearly trying to dispel some of the scuttlebutt with an all-new, meaty Thief gameplay trailer. The trailer is unquestionably impressive in a lot of respects, unfortunately, it also raises its share of questions and concerns.

Check out the trailer below…

Okay, very pretty, but man, that certainly didn’t feel much like a stealth game, did it? If I’m being generous I could say it looked kind of like Dishonored as played by somebody who didn’t like taking the stealth option. But hey, everyone thought Eidos Montreal’s last game, Deus Ex: Human Revolution was going to desecrate the Deus Ex name and it turned out pretty good. I have a feeling this new game won’t please Thief purists, but I choose to remain optimistic.
