Gloomwood is not Thief. It’s important to get that out of the way early, because it looks like Thief, and at times it feels like Thief. But despite the similarities, it’s a very distinct experience. It’s survival horror rather than a straight-up stealth game, for one thing, and it’s structured differently: Instead of linear, discrete missions, the game will take place in a single, open city made up of multiple connected districts.

Probably the most glaring difference, though, is that avoiding violence isn’t the priority that it is in the Thief games. The lead character in Gloomwood isn’t a master thief with a reputation to maintain, but more of an assassin who’s simply out to survive—and woe betide anyone who gets in the way.
