Square Enix has announced that Thief, the latest installment in the series which redefined the first person games with the introduction of stealth based gameplay, is now available via Steam and is 10% off. This is a first-person adventure that promises intelligent design allowing players to take full control, with freedom to choose their path through the game's levels and how they approach and overcome each challenge.
The Thief Taker General is Commander of the Baron's Watch; his main motive is 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.
