Thief ‘Stories from the City: Basso’s Gamble’ trailer

Meet Basso, a safe-cracker who organizes jobs for Garrett.

Square Enix has released the first in a new series of Thief “Stories from the City” videos in partnership with AMD today.

Each trailer in the series tells the story of The City from the perspective of a different character in Thief‘s narrative.

The first trailer focuses on Basso, a former safe-cracker turned fence, who uses his connections to The City’s underworld to organize work for Garrett, and is the closest thing he has to a friend. He owns an intelligent, but bad-tempered magpie called Jenivere, who delivers his messages.

Watch the video below. View some artwork at the gallery. Thief is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 25.
