From Arkane Studios and being published by Bethesda, Dishonored takes you on a first-person stealth driven journey through a world that cobbles elements from the past, present, and future into one steampunk mess.
The Empress, the woman your protagonist Corvo is life-sworn to protect, is dead and the authorities are jabbing a finger your way. Using cunning, espionage, a mixed bag of gadgets, and a wee bit of the supernatural, Corvo can carve himself a path of relentless revenge or leave every single one of Dishonored’s enemies – right down to the bosses – injured but breathing.
Gameplay smacks with the essence of industry peers like Deus Ex (which shouldn’t be surprising given that this game’s lead designer had a hand in that title), but the unique style certainly draws the eye. That uniqueness may just help Dishonored leave a mark when it arrives later this year, especially when like fare such as Bioshock Infinite threaten to hog the limelight.
