The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief Shows Off Cinematic Quality With New Trailer and Screenshots

on July 5, 2013 6:12 PM

KING Art and Nordic Games’ The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief newest trailer seeks to prove one thing: quality. Influenced by the classic Agatha Christie “whodunit” novels and the gangster movies of the 60s and 70s, The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief is meant to have a cinematic edge to its narrative, and will have players experiencing both the side of the investigator and the thief during the story (which is around 20 hours long).

For gamers who can’t wait for that, they can experience a prequel to the story–which involves a bitter rivalry between the thief The Raven and his pursuer, the detective Legrand, trying to steal and protect the highly coveted “Eye of the Sphinx,” respectively–via a free to play interactive graphic novel available on browsers, Android or iOS devices.

The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief will be split into three episodes, the first of which will be available to download to the PS3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac and Linux on July 23rd, later this month; the second episode is set to release on August 27th, and the third on September 24th. Players can also choose a Season Pass option, which will offer both a 20% preorder bonus for all three chapters (dropping the price down in the US from $24.99 to $19.99) and be upgraded for free to the Digital Deluxe version, which comes with some bonus content. Again, check out the trailer and screenshots below for a closer look at the game, and check out The Raven website to take your first guess at “whodunit” when the first episode releases.
