Thief E3 Presentation

This trailer offers a look as the E3 presentation of Thief as Eidos Montreal's "Producer / Thief" (not sure they meant the caption to read like he's a criminal) StÚphane Roy demonstrates the game for Spike TV's Geoff Keighley. The clip includes live gameplay footage, though it's the PlayStation 4 edition of the reboot that's used for this (thanks Rock, Paper, Shotgun). One of the topics they explore is the mix of action and stealth, and they admit they have been enhancing the action part of the equation as they've gone along after starting with a game that was almost purely about stealth.

There is a Gamespot interview/gameplay video as well that states THIS IS NOT A PREQUEL OR SEQUEL BUT AN ENTIRE REIMAGINING of the "franchise".

The video in the topic description doesn't really give a good impression, but I searched youtube for another and found a IGN video from E3 2013 showcasing gameplay, and it looked much better.

They do state that the game is still a work in progress, so the ugly UI and guard models (what the hell is wrong with their eyes?) will hopefully be fixed. The IGN video also clarifies what features can be turned off, which shows promise.

That the drop-knockout animations from a single button press is pretty lame, and it is MUCH too bright from Garret's perspective.

Apprehensively keeping an eye out.
