"I should probably preface this preview by saying that I have yet to play any of the classic Thief games, although they do sit all on their lonesome in my Steam library.
Nevertheless, I do recognize them as pioneers of the stealth genre that weave steampunk into a dark environment filled with precious loot ripe for swiping.
Given the ten-year dearth of anything Thief-related, Eidos Montreal is not considering this newest entry as a sequel or remake of the previous games. This current and next-gen title is more of a reimagining, taking parts of the older titles and mixing it in with new mechanics."
