Published by Bethesda Softworks and developed by Arkane Studios, Dishonored is a first-person action game in which you're a supernatural assassin out for revenge or redemption; it's your choice. An all-new debut trailer has been released today, check it out above!
Set in an immersive steampunk world with an arsenal of gadgets at your disposal, you can choose whether to stealthily achieve your objectives, or just come at them head-on. Here's a little backstory:
Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where strange steampunk- inspired technology and otherworldly mysticism coexist in the shadows. You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card.
Choices in Dishonored seem to have a greater effect than in most games. Combine weapons, gadgets, and abilities to accomplish things in the manner you want to, and choose your level of ruthlessness. Key gameplay features include:
Improvise and Innovate
Approach each assassination with your own style of play. Use shadow and sound to your advantage to make your way silently through levels unseen by foes, or attack enemies head-on as they respond to your aggressiveness. The flexible combat system allows you to creatively combine your abilities, supernatural powers and gadgets as you make your way through the levels and dispatch your targets. Improvise and innovate to define your play style.
Action with Meaning
The world of Dishonored reacts to how you play. Move like a ghost and resist corruption, or show no mercy and leave a path of destruction in your wake. Decide your approach for each mission, and the outcomes will change as a result.
Teleport for stealth approaches, possess any living creature, or stop time itself to orchestrate unearthly executions! Combining your suite of supernatural abilities and weapons opens up even more ways to overcome obstacles and eliminate targets. The game’s upgrade system allows for the mastery of deadly new abilities and devious gadgets.
A City Unlike Any Other
Enter an original world envisioned by Half-Life 2 art director Viktor Antonov. Arkane and Bethesda bring you a steampunk city where industry and mysticism collide, creating an atmosphere thick with intrigue. The world is yours to discover.
