Taken from the “Lockdown” mission in the early part of the game, these new screenshots and concept art from Square Enix and Eidos Montréal’s upcoming Thief, which is due next February, are worthy of a sneaky look.
Baron Northcrest has enforced a ruthless lockdown on the population of the City to control the uprising and quell the spread of a mysterious sickness that spreads through the streets, gripping people’s minds with crippling nightmares and terrible voices in their heads. Nobody feels safe from the sickness that the people on the streets call ‘The Gloom’.
Having returned to the City Garrett must reach his hideout on the other side of the Baron’s brutal lockdown, although he overhears of some precious items in a nearby jewelry store. He chooses to infiltrate the store on the way and although he knows this won’t be easy, he can’t help but steal a glimpse of what lies inside.
