Dishonored, the new IP from developer Arkane and publisher Bethesda, releases today. Bethesda has for your enjoyment released a launch trailer for the game, which you can check out below.
Dishonored follows the story of Corvo Attano, bodyguard to an Empress in a city overrun with a plague. When the Empress is killed and her daughter kidnapped, Corvo is framed for the deed and thrown in prison. Upon escaping, Corvo sets out on a path of revenge for his ruined life.
The crux of Dishonored‘s gameplay is choice; most missions can be accomplished through stealth or straight action, and Corvo has pistols, crossbows, and his trusty sword at his disposal, as well as a variety of fearsome powers. Depending on how objectives are completed, the overall game world is affected, leading to different outcomes. For example, killing large numbers of people will worsen the plague. I’ve been playing the game for the past few hours and I’m really enjoying it.
