The all-new debut trailer for Dishonored, an upcoming first-person action game from Arkane Studios
Bethesda Softworks today released the first video for Dishonored, showcasing this all-new first-person action game under development at Arkane Studios, known for Arx Fatalis. Dishonored casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge - 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 neo-industrial technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you, abilities beyond those of any common man.
In Dishonored, creatively eliminate your targets with the flexible combat system as you combine the numerous supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.
Dishonored will launch in 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
