Bethesda has recently revealed some big news they have been teasing for awhile. No, it is not Skyrim DLC. Instead, they released the debut CGI trailer for their upcoming assassination game Dishonored.
“Dishonored casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge,” explains Bethesda. “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. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is being besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government armed with strange technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man.”
Players are given choices on how they will assassinate their targets. There will be a combination of gadgets, weapons and other supernatural powers to eliminate your foes. Whether you want to play stealthy, or aggressively, the choice is yours. The game has non-linear gameplay, similar to Dues Ex, which makes sense because co-designer Harvey Smith worked on the first two Dues Ex games.
In the trailer, we will see the hero take out a target from his first-person perspective. We also get to see the visual design of the game which looks awfully “steampunk-ish.”
Enjoy the trailer below:
Dishonored will be released later this year on the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. It’s in development at Bethesda subsidiary Arkane Studios.
