With its release almost at hand, that’s February 28th to be exact, Thief has rather appropriately gotten its launch trailer over on PlayStation’s YouTube channel. While this launch trailer demonstrates nowhere near as much of its gameplay or the expected experience as its last Thief 101 trailer, it’s a launch trailer and so is only really meant for hype. Fortunately however, it does portray some of the game’s story, or just enough to get by at the very least.
The strongest point of this video is its focus on the supernatural lore of Thief, where so far we’ve heard or been shown very little. It’s definitely made the game seem that much more interesting, and we were already pretty sold on the game. Thief is definitely starting to look like one of this year’s biggest hits. That said, however, it also means Thief has the most potential, so far at least, to disappoint; here’s hoping it’s the former rather than the latter.
