The Dishonored launch trailer was released by Bethesda to coincide with the game’s release in the US.
This dystopian, steampunkish magical assassin game has comparisons to Bioshock and the Deus Ex series, so there’s no wonder that “Game of the Year” talk is being thrown around for Dishonored already.
The Empress of Dunwall lies dead, and you, Corvo, are framed for the murder. Having an entire steampunk army after your blood would be a bad thing, but not for Corvo. Thanks to the helping of supernatural powers and a rather funky looking mask, it’s vengeance at tea-time.
Dishonored is being compared to other stealthy classics, such as the excellent Thief series, which should make for some truly atmospheric and absorbing gameplay.
Dishonored is now out for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
