Square Enix have just released a six minute long video detailing just what to expect from the forthcoming Thief reboot, and I must say it’s managed to achieve its intended goal of making me rather excited.
I’ve been cautiously optimistic about Thief for a while now. There’s been some preview articles that have picked apart the game, spilling its guts for the world to see, highlighting some potentially serious problems, but for the most part the project appears to be coming together well.
Of course it helps that I’ve not played the previous Thief games in a very long time, and have no intention of revisiting them before reviewing this reboot. It also helps that I don’t tend to judge a reboot against what came before, as proven by my love of DmC: Devil May Cry. For the more devoted Thief fans who are struggling to accept the changes made this trailer may not be enough to ease concerns, but then perhaps the full game will.
Either way, I’m looking forward to it.
