Square Enix has announced today that Thief has gone gold (ready to be released). They have also revealed a new 101 trailer that shows off various features and methods of gameplay that Thief provides.
In the post on Playstation Blog, Eidos Montréal Producer Stephane Roy stated:
Fans of the original Thief will be relieved to find the ingredients that made it one of the most respected franchises in the industry. The game doesn’t take gamers for idiots, it’s far from easy, and you can complete it without killing a single enemy or even being seen. But it is not only designed with long-time fans of the series in mind.
A new generation of gamers will also have a chance to discover why Thief, one of the founding fathers of the stealth genre is so well-loved, to explore the rich lore of The City and to experiment with a different style of gameplay that emphasizes thoughtfulness and patience as well as skills and reflexes.
We respect players. I know it sounds like empty pandering, but we really do take it to heart. We’ve given you a huge amount of options to customize your experience to enable you to play exactly as you prefer. You want the most complete immersion possible? We let you remove any clutter from the screen: the interface, the reticle, any visual indicator that isn’t part of the game world.
Square Enix has stated that Thief will contain a mode for those who are want a true challenge called Iron Man mode: if the player dies, the game is over, be it at the beginning of the game or the very last mission. There are options for those who wish to enjoy the story also, as various options can assist them throughout the game.
Thief is set to release on PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows PC on Feb. 25.
