Thief launch trailer is strangely conspicuous
Thief 4 - 4

Before long, you too will be able to pose menacingly in the streets of The City.

You’d think that for a game called , which is ostensibly about hiding in the shadows and going around undetected, you’d have to do some pretty good detective work to find trailers and the like. I mean, that’d just be fitting, right? But no. It’s out next week, and have issued out a launch trailer. We have it here, and we didn’t have to break into any mansions to get it.

I’m happy to announce that this launch trailer doesn’t look awful. I mean, sure, it’s got some clunky dialogue (“Be careful. Don’t become a ghost yourself.” “I’ve been a ghost all my life.”) and a number of plaudits from a number of publications despite there being no reviews yet, but it’s not as offensively horrible as some of the previous trailers. Alas, it doesn’t have any quotes from . I’m amazed they didn’t go for “Truly ridiculous voice acting – IncGamers”, or possibly “Sounding like an unmitigated disaster – IncGamers”, or even – if they wanted something positive, but missing context – “Actually looks pretty good – IncGamers”. Oh well.

Thief is out on 25 February. We’re hoping it will be good, while fearing that it won’t be. We’re currently trying to secure review code, but I strongly suspect we’ll bring you a review sometime around launch no matter what.
