In Partnership with AMD: “The Thief Taker General’s Hunt” Available Now

Montréal (February 11, 2014)Square Enix® and Eidos-Montréal™, the award winning studio behind the critically acclaimed Deus Ex: Human Revolution® today released “ The Thief Taker General’s Hunt”, the third and final trailer in the series of stylized videos focusing on the rich narrative and characters of THIEF’s corrupt and broken city.

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 capturing the prize that he desires most; Garrett, the Master Thief.

The Thief Taker General is corrupt to the bone, using fear to enforce an exorbitant ‘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. So who is the biggest Thief in The City?

THIEF will be in your hands on February 25, 2014 in North America.

The new trailer ‘THIEF - Stories from the City - Part 3 – “The Thief Taker General’s Hunt” and accompanying assets can be viewed on YouTube [ here] or downloaded from our press site [ here].
