THIEF “Stories from the City” video series releases first video

Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal, in a partnership with AMD, will be releasing videos for their upcoming stealth-title THIEF with a stylized series called “Stories from the City”. These videos will focus on The City, where the game takes place, and the characters whom reside there.

The series is described to “…tell the story of The City from the perspective of a different character in THIEF’s narrative describing what life is like in the broken, repressed City that is being ravaged by the evil Baron Northcrest and the mysterious sickness known as ‘The Gloom’.”

The first video has hit YouTube today and features Basso, a former safe-cracker turned fence. He uses his connection to various peoples in the underworld to arrange thieving jobs for Garrett, our thief. Basso delivers messages to you with the use of his smart but ill-tempered magpie Jenivere.

Watch the video below and stay tuned to the ThiefVideoGame YouTube channel for more entries in the series. THIEF launches on February 25, 2014 in North America on PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
