Oh, Thief. First it giveth, then it taketh away. I suppose that’s better than most thieves, who aren’t too keen on the giving part, but I’d much rather Eidos Montreal’s reboot of my most beloved series would settle into a predictable pattern. Many people disagreed with my opinion that the previous trailer captured some of the City’s character, but I reckon it’s the best footage that has been publicly released so far. Nathan’s experience when he managed to put his hands all over the game wasn’t very positive though. The new trailer swings back toward the negative, with mention of multiplayer leaderboards and a…hnnnghh…exclusive…heeuurgh…preorder mission.
Thief is out on February 25th so you have approximately four hundred years to consider and forget about that preorder opportunity.
