Survival horror stealth Gloomwood early access hits August

Otherwise known as Thief with guns, the survival horror stealth game Gloomwood early access release date has been confirmed for later in summer 2022

The Gloomwood early access release date is confirmed

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a new entry in classic stealth game series Thief, although we may get a new one now the IP has been sold to Embracer Group. In the meantime, the self-styled “Thief with guns” Gloomwood early access release date was confirmed for this summer.

There were a number of great games shown at the PC Gaming Show, including a new trailer for the System Shock remake narrated by Shodan actor Terri Brosius. That wasn’t the only trailer voiced by Brosius, as she’s also lending her talents to horror game Gloomwood – appropriate, given how inspired it is by Thief, which Brosius was also a big part of.

More importantly, anyone who wants to try the Thief successor can do so this summer – either via the demo currently available on Steam, or through the Gloomwood early access release, which the trailer confirms is happening on August 16. If you’re a Thief fan desperate for a new game rather than mods, you’ll want to keep your eye on this.

You can check out the new trailer below.
