Description

Thief Town is a local multiplayer-only stealth action game set in a pixel-perfect rendition of the Wild West. Lurk in the crowd, emulate non-player characters, and achieve backstabbing victory. Up to 4 players control identical avatars (the “Thieves”) in a single-screen arena (the “Town”), also filled with other identical NPCs. Players must identify which NPCs are secretly other players and stab them for points, before being discovered and stabbed themselves!

History

Thief Town comes to the PlayStation 4 with the "SPOOKY TOWN" update and tons of new PlayStation exclusive features! With hectic multiplayer fun, Thief Town finally finds its true calling on a home console system.

Features

  • Competitive 2-4 player battles – Blend in with thieves while you search for and stab your opponents
  • Multiple modes and items – Guns, smoke bombs, drunks, TNT, sheriffs, sandstorms, and killer tumbleweeds
  • Multiple arenas - Sneak around the Wild West and Spooky Town, with unique showdowns and field effects depending on night and day cycles
  • PlayStation 4 exclusive content - retro game filters, touchpad support for a more realistic stabbing experience, and an open-ended PlayStation-themed naming system
