“This city will not die with the old and the poor holding it back. The time has
come for a new future” -Baron Northcrest
“No more will our homes be taken and our families starved. This City belongs to
the people. We must seize it back.” -Orion
Garrett the Master Thief is entangled in the growing layers of conflict between
Baron Northcrest and the oppressed masses led by Orion, the voice of the people.
In a City on the brink of revolution, Garrett’s skills are all he can trust as
he walks the fine line between politics and the people.

On the other hand if the game is even half as Thief as the older Thief games then it would still be a pretty great time. I just hope that the levels are genuinely built around stealth primarily and combat is an afterthought but that feels like a pipe dream these days
I'm not iffy in the least. Thief died when Looking Glass folded and I only wish they'd let it rest in peace instead of desecrating its grave with this abomination.
