Square-Enxi and Eidos Montreal released the second video in their Stories from the City series today, focusing on the characters and setting behind the upcoming stealth title.
Square-Enix also revealed a little more about the video's mysterious Queen of Beggars:
"Nobody knows how old the Queen of the Beggars actually is; rumor has it she’s as old as The City itself. Some say that although she is blind - she sees through the eyes of the rats that riddle the city streets. Despite being on the lowest layer of society, the Queen of the Beggars operates the beggar’s court with more respect, diplomacy and wisdom, than many of the people with real positions of power in the City. She is a wise, some say all knowing character whose words, beliefs and judgements should be revered."
THIEF is due to arrive on February 25, 2014 in North America. More entries in the Stories From the City series will precede the game's release.
