Dishonored, Arkane Studios’ upcoming first-person action game with an emphasis on stealth, will be releasing on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC October 9 in North America and October 12 in Europe.
Bethesda broke the news this morning in a blog post, where they also revealed the below box art. The open-world, steampunk adventure will now be right in the middle of the crazy holiday release schedule, but its unique Neo-Victorian city setting and use of the supernatural should do wonders to make the game standout. Corvo, a former guard of the Empress and the game’s protagonist, has the unique ability to momentarily freeze time, possess living creatures, summon plague animals, and teleport short distances. If his special abilities don’t do the trick, there are always swords, daggers and guns.
