Thief’s Mac Version is Now Available

Without much fanfare, Feral Interactive quietly released Thief, the first-person stealth game from developer Eidos Montreal. You can find on the Mac App Store.

Originally released for consoles and Windows on February 2014, Thief is a revival of the cult classic Thief franchise, and the fourth instalment so far. However, this is the first time a Thief game ever comes to the Mac.

In Thief, you are challenged to combine stealth, gadgetry and exploration as Garrett, a Master Thief with mysterious skills that make him the most wanted man in a forsaken city. You 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 you explore its streets and encounter its residents, you will uncover a sinister plot to shift the balance of power in The City, and change Garrett’s world forever.

    Damn this is a great port. These Spec Requirements are so low

    • I haven’t tested it yet, but will let you know how it actually runs once I give it a go. And if you try it before, let us know how it runs.

      I wonder how smooth it will run in weaker machines, such as mine 2011 Mac Mini.

      • I’m afraid your 2011 Mac Mini would have a very hard time playing this one. The graphics required seem too high. What is your current graphics card?

    • A 1GB graphics card isn’t that low…. Most people with 2012-2013 Macs have less than that!
