Thief video introduces the corrupt Thief Taker General

A video released today for Thief, Eidos Montreal's upcoming reboot of the stealth series, introduces viewers to the Thief Taker General, enemy of thieves everywhere.

Press play above to hear the bleak vision he has of a world where everything boils down to "power and money" as well as his plans for Garrett, the Master Thief and protagonist of the game. For more on Thief's world, you can check out two previous videos in this series, which spotlight The Queen of Beggars and the doom and gloom of The City.

Thief is poised for a Feb. 25 launch on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Windows PC. To find out how much the game improved since the last time we saw it, be sure to check out our recent hands-on impressions and interview with the developer.
