I’m not entirely sure how I missed these, but Square Enix has released a very well done series of lore trailers for the upcoming Thief reboot, entitled “Stories from The City”. The third and final episode has just been released, and it focuses on a character known as the Thief Taker General. You can bet your left butt cheek this bloke is going to be one of the game’s chief antagonists.
The Thief Taker General is the commander of the corrupt Baron’s Watch. We’re told that his main goal is “to hunt and hang every thief in The City, and he is hell-bent on capturing the prize that he desires the most: Garrett, the Master Thief.”
Thief is out at the end of this month for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The game has drawn marked criticism since it was unveiled, but that vocal criticism has been used by developer Eidos Montreal to fine-tune the experience to satiate fans. We’ll only really know if they managed to get the balance right at the end of the month.
