This time, our heroes will have to face a greater menace in an attempt to stop it, during an adventure that will make them question their actions and themselves...
After rescueing Sly from being stuck back in time, the gang finally gets some time to rest, despite Penelope having escaped once again. Besides that, Sly & Co. kept their usual routine (escaping Carmelita, stealing stuff, and so on) until that that fatal day...
21 years later the events of Sly's rescue, our Inspector Fox received an urgent call to go to London and assist the local police with a case that had been going on since at least a few years. Of course, the Cooper gang couldn't resist to the curiosity (and the possibility to steal some more treasures) and followed her in her trip. Once arrived, while Carmelita went straight to the local Police station, they quickly found a Safehouse inside the Big Ben's clock tower. From there, they could have organized their plans safely and at the same time keep an eye below themselves. First of all, Bentley sends Sly to hide a bug on Carmelita, so that they could have listen every single thing and eventually be able to set up a plan.
Later that day, they manage to transmit the bug's video and audio data on Bentley's PC, showing Carmelita query (along with other police agents) a man about a serie of homicides that happened recently in all Great Britain. After seeing the entire video, the Turtle asks Sly to go around to make some photos and place more bugs in strategic points of the city. During the mission, he meets with the man the Inspector was interrogating before: Ludwig Lousteau, that will activate an ingame sequence in which you will be able to choose the approach you want to talk to him.

Depending on the approach choosen, he will either turn hostile (making the gameplay more stealthy and difficult), neutral (won't influence on the gameplay) or friendly (he will invite you to his mansion).
Regardless the result, Sly contacts Bentley about the entire conversation and the latter tells him that, as much he searched into the criminal database, no result featuring the hybrid had been found. The mystery goes on, and more homicides without responsible come out, until further investigation by the gang itself...
