THIEF Preorder Bonus Trailer

Square Enix and Eidos Montreal announce The Bank Heist for the upcoming THIEF reboot, a preorder bonus in-game mission that's an homage to the Bank mission in Thief II: The Metal Age. They offer this trailer showing off the mission and provide the following details:

THE BANK HEIST
As the Master Thief, infiltrate the City’s most secure location, Stonemarket First Bank, to steal a coveted family heirloom called the Star of Auldale. To this day, this heavily guarded and treacherous place remains impregnable, but that’s about to change…

  • A challenging mission that will put your thieving skills to the test.
  • Outsmart security measures found exclusively in this mission
  • Search for the Bank’s unique loot and many other secrets
  • A true homage to the Bank mission in Thief II: The Metal Age.

THE BANK HEIST will be available for THIEF pre-orders made ahead of the February 25, 2014 launch.

After the 15th death due to missing the proper path around 7 or 8 mutants in the 3rd hour of the game, I decided my time would be better spent playing a PC game.

Are you talking about the subway station? Why don't you just kill them? You don't HAVE to sneak around them. Pick up a brick, throw it somewhere, watch four clickers stand around it howling, throw a molotov at them. Bam, four dead clickers.

No, it's downtown in the buildings. At some point after the part where you learn about going around the lone clicker by throwing stuff, you reach another area where you start by a sneak kill. Then there are about 7 guys in the next few rooms, runners and clickers. Pain in the ass.

It's a console game plain and simple. You can't even jump for crissake! I may pick it up when it hits 5 bucks on Steam, maybe, but otherwise no.

Yeah, so far it 'looks & sounds' like they pretty much ruined the franchise, and what pisses me off is that they use the excuse that "it is not a sequel, but a 'reboot' of the franchise". Yeah whatever, GFY!!!

Looks like an entertaining game I might pick up if the reviews are good. probably not until a good sale though.

It does not however look anything like a Thief game. I have no idea why they don't just start a new franchise instead of doing crap like this. I see a sales failure like Syndicate incoming...but hey...maybe I will be wrong.

Rinse, repeat.

I snuck through that area the first time (which was pretty tense and hair-raising, especially when four of them trapped me in the coffee shop), but my next playthroughs, I just killed all of them. It allows you to loot all the stores too, which is nice.

So, really, that mission isn't very scripted.

Loved the original Thief(s)...obviously have big concerns about the dumbing down that may take place here.

Don't mind the bonus level for the pre-order...I won't be pre-ordering, but using that Thief 2 level is a smart idea.

Too early to tell but I hope you can turn off some of the "features" they have showcased in previews.

Yeah, my concern is that the game design and levels are being built around these lame features, but if we turn them off, how much will that effect (negative and/or positive) how we're able to play out a level successfully/unsuccessfully?

And then you'll be fucked by having to figure out by trial and error which 10-pixel-square area you need to stand in (and when) for the 3 guards not to see you.

The Thief demo at E3 had low FOV, quicktime events, low resolution textures, dishonored game mechanics, and was an assassination simulator with call of duty style "xp" for headshots. It's not Thief. It's an imposter. I weep in my rage.
In the same vein, I was blown away by the reviews for The Last Of Us, and decided to buy it (PS3 exclusive). It's been a while since I've gotten angry at a game and pulled the plug on the console in disgust. I HATE the low FOV, the insane QTEs, low resolution textures, and most of all the fact that if you don't follow pretty much exactly the script and go in the exact places at the exact time you're dead. And these places can only be found through trial and error, mostly because of the shit FOV, textures and lighting.
After the 15th death due to missing the proper path around 7 or 8 mutants in the 3rd hour of the game, I decided my time would be better spent playing a PC game.

Your telling me the developers went out of their way and created a "bonus" in-game mission just for those who pre-order the game? GTFO. There's most likely a 99.9% chance there is an alternative method to unlock this or purchase it separately down the road for 2 bucks. Seriously, exclusive in-game content for pre-orders is such a lame gimmick.

Preorder today so you can play the full game!

Because people who "only" buy the game on day one, wait until the weekend, or wait for reviews are scum!
A time challenge? Really? I hope it's better than it looks.
Hoping they can add some on-disc, day one DLC as well ,

I'll be getting it day one. I will gladly write down a mini review for peeps on this site. It'll be coming from a Thief fanboy, sure, but a fanboy who paid full price and is expecting lots. So, it could very well be quite the negative mini review.

Too early to judge. I had doubts about DX:HR and Blacklist too but those turned out very nicely.

There's just no way, I can wait till it's 75% off. The only reason they get away with this is because of people who buy console games.  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

Ah I'll still wait for final judgement. People go off on Thief 3, I liked it. If/when they fuck this up, we can hang'm then.
