The Bigger Game – Thief
Xbox Games with Gold Predictions
If you subscribe to Microsoft’s online platform, you are also gifted a few free games every month through Games with Gold. While the offical list has yet to be released for the upcoming month of February 2020, we have some predictions as to what those free games might be.
Usually a larger game headlines the list, and 2014’s Thief reboot is looking like a promising pick.
Thief is a title that went somewhat under the radar back when it released in 2014. It’s a basic stealth game that had some interesting gameplay mechanics in an open-world environment, but overall was lacking in story and mission quality to make it memorable.
It was developed by Eidos-Montréal, which is owned by Square Enix Europe that is a subsidiary of Square Enix.
Microsoft has had no trouble including Square Enix games on Games with Gold in the past, like Hitman: Absolution in April 2014, Tomb Raider in March 2015, Just Cause 2 in June 2015, and Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition in December 2016.
