The Master Thief Competition

Posted by Valerie Bourdeau

Thief is #1 in multiple countries across the world! Thanks to everyone out there who is currently playing. To celebrate, we’ve teamed up with Yogscast and created this video:


Our real-life building-hopping Master Thief is played by none other than James Kingston, the UK based nutter who you may have seen hanging from a crane recently. Here he is, all decked out as Garrett, with our PR guy Adam Phillips.

James Kingston’s fame as the face of urban free-climbing has been snowballing ever since his crane hang hit the internet. Here is more of the kind of craziness he gets up to...

He recently starred in Channel 4’s Don’t Look Down’ documentary in the UK. If you’d like to know more about James, take a sneak peek at this article or head over to

Breaking news... Eidos-Montreal is also searching for real-life Master Thieves! Today, we’re announcing a competition to win one of two top-spec gaming PCs supplied by AMD. To enter, simply upload a video of direct feed footage of Thief to YouTube. This can be raw feed or edited footage – the choice is totally yours!

The first gaming PC will be won by the very best video out there. Whether it’s funny, clever, creative, or whatever you choose, the video that entertains us the most will win!

The second PC will be won by the person who uploads the most impressive video, the very best, most innovative, most Master Thief video out there. Will you leap around in the shadows unnoticed and clear an area of loot in the quickest time possible? Will you be a predator and clear an entire area of guards in a few moves? Will you do a bit of both? The choice is yours!

The rules are nice and simple as we don’t want to dictate what you do, we want you to choose. Now go and make something amazing! Let your imagination run as wild as you want - if your video is the best, we’ll give you a brand new shiny gaming PC!
