Thief: Stories from the City – PART 1 – “BASSO’S GAMBLE”‏

Thief_BassosGamble_Screenshot_1383308228Montréal (1st November 2013) – Square Enix® and Eidos-Montréal™, the award winning studio behind the critically acclaimed DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION® today released the first trailer in a new series of stylized videos that focus on the rich tapestry of Thief; its City and its characters.

Each trailer in this new series tells 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’.


“Now I get others to do the hard work. ‘Cause I’ve got the contacts.

If you’re a wrong ‘un, chances are you know me.

Maybe you owe me. Maybe I owe you.


Now it’s a different. We’re all in the same shithole.

The Gloom’s got the City by the neck; The Watch has got it by the balls.

The City’s dying, right enough.

But maybe there’s a fella I know who can steal back its life.”

The first trailer focuses on Basso, a former boxman (safe-cracker) turned fence, who uses his vast connections to The City’s underworld to organise thieving jobs for Garrett. He owns an intelligent, but bad tempered magpie called Jenivere who delivers messages for him. Garrett might consider himself a loner, but Basso is the nearest thing he has to a friend. And whether he readily admits it or not; he rather likes the fellow.

THIEF is due for release on 25th February 2014 in North America / 28th February 2014 in all European and PAL territories for Windows PC, PlayStation®3, PlayStation®4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

  1. I think this really sets the stage for the kind of person Garrett is, and how he’s perceived in the city. Nice!
