As revealed in Game Informer this month, Thief heralds the long-awaited return of Garrett, the anti-hero of the classic Thief series.
No mere pickpocket, no vulgar assassin, Garrett is a shadowy figure skilled in thievery, stealth, infiltration and escape: the Master Thief. Orphaned at a young age, he stole to survive, yet his raw talent meant he quickly excelled. Now he lives to steal, less for the gold and more for the lure of the impenetrable, the impossible, the secret, the unknown. The challenge is what keeps his body and mind alive and sharp.
Garrett is a self-reliant observer who sees more than others and knows more than he lets on. His, shall we say, "special" eye allows him to perceive what his marks might miss. As well as his exceptional skills, Garrett relies on his in-depth knowledge of its streets, rooftops and shadows to get by. Not to mention an arsenal of tools that enable him to navigate and manipulate his environment.
