Thief Goes Gold
For those unaware of what it means to go "gold" in the gaming world, here's the low-down. Unlike the US record industry in which a gold record accounts for 500,000 sales, a game going gold means that a game has finished its development and bug testing phases it is ready to enter the manufacturing phase.
Anyway, onto more important business. THIEF has gone gold and it is looking incredible! With just over 3 weeks until release, this is looking like a legit next-gen experience (on next-gen consoles). If the game is anywhere near as great as the trailer below suggests, we're in for a real treat. On a side note, I can't wait to see some awesome Garrett cosplay!
THIEF HAS GONE GOLD
WRAP YOUR EYES AROUND THE ‘THIEF - 101 TRAILER’ TO CELEBRATE
Sydney, 5th February 2014 - That’s right folks; Eidos-Montréal’s THIEF™ has GONE GOLD and will be in the hands of all would be Master Thieves later this month. To celebrate the news we’re releasing a brand new ‘THIEF - 101 TRAILER’ that details everything you need to know about THIEF.
“It’s a wrap, Thief is gold. It’s nearly time for the fans to fall in love with Thief all over again, and time for newcomers to finally see what all the fuss is about” said Stephane Roy, Producer. “Thief is one of the founding-fathers of the stealth genre; we’re proud to have worked on such a well-loved series and proud to say; Garrett, the Master Thief is back.”
THIEF is the second game from Eidos-Montréal whose previous title DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION also saw them breathing life back into a classic, critically acclaimed series. It’s not an easy challenge – but they’ve gone and done it again!
Today’s brand new ‘THIEF 101 trailer’ provides key insights on the game’s story, its key characters, key gameplay and key feature set (including the fact that the game’s main character is a Master Thief who doesn’t need keys).
