Games of 2014 – Thief

A single-player experience like no other.

Although the Thief franchise has been around for quite some time, the latest installment will only be the second of four games to reach consoles, and the first to hit the PlayStation platform. Developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix, Thief is an action-adventure stealth game where violence is a minimally effective last resort.

After spending some quality time getting to know the game, we found the dark themes to be somewhat comparable to Dishonored. If you enjoyed that, you might want to take a closer look at Thief. Of course, the mark of a great game always comes down to the gameplay. One of the most hyped features will be the artificial intelligence. The game will be aware of level design and know of potential places where players can hide.

Players will control Garrett, a master thief who carries a blackjack collapsible compound bow — used for both combat and non-lethal purposes — and a claw used as a grapple. In addition, money earned can be used to buy supplies and equipment.

Unlike many games set for early launch in 2014, Thief has a set release date of February 25 in North America. Regardless of your preferred platform, it can be found on the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Regardless of what platform you plan to play it on, Thief looks to be a very rewarding experience. Take a look at the trailer below and let us know in the comments, do you plan to pick this title up in 2014?
