New Bethesda game - Dishonored


Recommended Posts


I saw this awesome trailer a few minutes ago on youtube. Never heard about it, but it will release in 2012. In my opinion it looks real nice. I hope it will be like "The elder scrolls" in future. I would like to know how the gameplay works, but I think there is nothing known about that!?


/edit: Forgot to put the trailer in >.<

According to Wikipedia:



The player controls Corvo Atano, once a legendary bodyguard for the Empress, who seeks vengeance against the Lord Regent who framed him for the assassination of the Empress. The Empress died in Corvo's arms, and thus he was held accountable. Corvo is not only a fine swordsman and marksman, master-at-arms, and cunning infiltrator, but also possesses great supernatural powers. The game is presented in open world format. The player can roam The Isles as well as the distant Pandyssian Continent, though the primary setting for the game is the Steakpunk-esque city of Dunwall.The game is played in first-person, with an emphasis placed on stealth action and the utilization of gadgets as well as the environment to eliminate opposing forces. In the Game Informer cover story, it was mentioned that every enemy in the game (even bosses) can be neutralized non-lethally, if the player so chooses. Lead designers Harvey Smith and Raf Colantonio have described the game world as a "simulation"; if the player encounters thugs harassing an innocent passerby, they can be fought off, but the thugs themselves exist within the game world prior to the event, rather than simply spawning in at a designated time or place. If the player encounters the thugs ahead of time, they can be defeated and the mugging will never take place at all.

Corvo has access to swords, daggers, and guns, including powerful but slow pistols and muskets. His supernatural powers include the ability to freeze time for a certain period, possess any living creature, summon plague animals such as rats, and teleport short distances.

Also, part of the game is an entity referred to as "The Outsider". The ambiguous being is described as part angel and part devil, and it is supposedly responsible for all magic in the world. Its motives and nature are shrouded in mystery, but the protagonist, Corvo, made contact with the being whilst imprisoned; the Outsider offered him the chance to exact vengeance on the people who framed him by giving Corvo its mark, gifting the disgraced bodyguard with magical powers. According to lead designers Raf Colantonio and Harvey Smith, the Outsider walks among the mortals of Dishonored's world.


I'm liking the concept so far, the game's influences have been cited to be games such as Assassin's Creed, Deus Ex and Bioshock.

Looks cool and all but I'm still waiting for Bethesda to roll out Fallout 4. New Vegas was a disappointment in comparison to Fallout 3 so I'm still waiting!


I'll probably end up getting Dishonored and it may be a great game but come on Bethesda, you've got a second huge franchise in addition to TES!
