Thief ‘Lockdown’ screenshots, artwork

Infiltrate a jewelry story while the city's on lockdown.

Square Enix has released new screenshots and concept art of Thief, showin a mission at the beginning of the game called “Lockdown.”

Here’s a description of the mission, courtesy of Square Enix:

Baron Northcrest has enforced a ruthless lockdown on the population of the City to control the uprising and quell the spread of a mysterious sickness that spreads through the streets, gripping people’s minds with crippling nightmares and terrible voices in their heads. Nobody feels safe from the sickness that the people on the streets call ‘The Gloom’.

Having returned to the City Garrett must reach his hideout on the other side of the Baron’s brutal lockdown, although he overhears of some precious items in a nearby jewelry store. He chooses to infiltrate the store on the way and although he knows this won’t be easy, he can’t help but steal a glimpse of what lies inside.

Thief is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 25 in North America and February 28 in Europe.
