Mac gamers, are you ready to become the Thief

Published On November 24, 2015 | By Kirk Hiner | Macintosh

I once stole $20 from my mom so I could buy an album at Paine’s Music Store. I only needed about $8 for the record, but it would’ve been weird to give mom change for money I stole from her. Does that make me a thief? Maybe, but certainly not on the level of Garrett in the game Thief, now available for Mac courtesy of Feral Interactive.


Developed by Eidos-Montréal, Thief is the first game in the series to hit the Mac, and it does so on Steam with the Mac App Store release to come.

Thief challenges players to combine stealth, gadgetry and exploration as they control Garrett, a Master Thief with mysterious skills. Players will pick locks, crack safes and solve mechanical puzzles to pocket rare treasures, all while keeping clear of The City’s guards.

Thief takes place in The City, a gothic metropolis filled with dark alleys, treacherous rooftops and concealed vaults. As they explore its ramshackle streets and encounter its charismatic residents, players will uncover a sinister plot to shift the balance of power in The City, and change Garrett’s world forever.

It all ends up looking like this…

…and that looks pretty cool.

On Steam (and other download stores), the Thief: Master Thief Edition contains a digital art book, a comic book and the soundtrack for $32.99. Steam customers can purchase playable DLC separately. When it hits the Mac App Store as Thief: Shadow Edition, it will contain all playable DLC released for the game, including The Bank Heist mission, The Forsaken challenge map and three booster packs all for $34.99.
