After revealing the box art for Thief, Eidos-Montreal has released the Thief Gamescom 2013 trailer, titled "Uprising." It shows Garrett, the series protagonist, explaining the current state of affairs between the wealthy and poor, and justifying why he steals.
The PC title is set in a post-apocalyptic future — zombie-free — and is inspired by DayZ. Players must survive while figuring out what happened that changed mankind. They can work together, forging alliances, or venture alone. Either way, their actions and decisions shape their stories in persistent online worlds. Up to 64 players can fit on a server at one time to help strike a balance between isolation and community.
