Newest Thief Trailer Showcases Weapons, Strategy and Superb Visuals
The latest trailer for the upcoming first-person stealth action reboot Thief has just been released and at just over six minutes long, is filled to the brim with detailed and exciting information regarding both the story and gameplay.
Get ready to assassinate your foes using a variety of different methods. There are many different arrow types available in Thief, each one having its own specific use in every encounter you face. As seen in the trailer, arrows can also be used to interact with the environment around you, such as setting off a gas valve, leaving an enemy engulfed in flames.
Whatever method you prefer to dispatch your enemies, the game is focused heavily on planning strategy to achieve each objective. Using darkness to your advantage, you will be able to scout rooftops, unlock and climb through windows, and slip past guards undetected at every turn.
Just like the choice of gameplay found in Dishonored, players will be able to choose whether to leave no enemy alive or to act as a ghost, refraining from killing a single enemy the entire game. Non-lethal arrows and a club called a Blackjack gives you the option to take down targets without resorting to murder.
The visuals in both cut scenes and gameplay are absolutely superb. The dim lighting throughout the trailer gives the world of Thief a dark, mysterious tone, but at the same time remains equally impressive and beautiful. The game is definitely a perfect example to showcase the power of the PS4 and Xbox One in terms of next-gen graphics.
Thief will release on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC on February 25.
