A new trailer from Thief is the third and final installment in a series of “Stories from The City” clips from the stealth/action remake that’s due for release in two weeks. The clip is titled “The Thief Taker General’s Hunt,” as it introduces The Thief Taker General, the commander of the Baron’s Watch. Here’s word:
The Thief Taker General is Commander of the Baron’s Watch; his main motive… 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. So who is the biggest Thief in The City?
