In only a few weeks, Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal will finally be releasing Thief on current and last generation video game consoles in addition to the PC. With the release date looming and promotions assumingly shifting focus to the gameplay directly, the publisher has released the third and final instalment in their “Thief: Stories from the City” trailer series titled “The Thief Taker General’s Hunt”.
The Thief Taker General is Commander of the Baron’s Watch; his main motive… to hunt and hang every thief in The City and he is hell-bent on capture the prize that he desires the most; Garrett, the Master Thief. The Thief Taker General is corrupt to the bone, using fear to enforce an extortionate ‘black tax’ on members of the underworld; those who don’t pay find themselves at the end of a noose. The Thief Taker General also runs a grisly large-scale ‘operation’ where the bodies of the victims who have died from the mysterious sickness known as ‘The Gloom’ are collected and stripped bare, everything of value is stolen from their cold, stiff corpses; clothes, jewellery – even artificial limbs and gold teeth.
