Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal (Deus Ex: Human Revolution) have released a brand new trailer depicting the final, incredibly daring, yet fateful, heist for Garrett and his former protégé Erin.
The new trailer, created using in-game visuals and entitled ‘Thief: Channeling of the Primal’, reveals the moment when Garrett and Erin discover that the artifact they were hired to steal is at the center of a bizarre ritual; a ceremony conducted by a secretive group of robed men who intend to harness a mysterious energy called The Primal.
The Primal has, until now, only ever been rumored to exist. Garret feels the job is too dangerous and attempts to call it off but the rebellious Erin refuses to abandon the heist. The ritual begins and the force of the Primal is unleashed, violently shaking the foundations of the building and Erin falls to her tragic death.
As time passes The City begins to change. The population begins to change and so too does Garrett himself. It becomes clear that the force of The Primal is far greater than anyone could ever imagine.
Thief is due for release on February 25th, 2014 in North America and February 28th, 2014 in Europe.
