Decisions and darkness details Dishonored
Posted on April 17, 2012 by Paige Carlson

Bethseda recently released a trailer demonstrating the world and nature of their upcoming title, Dishonored. This steampunk-styled stealth game centers on a former bodyguard who has been framed for the murder of the beloved Empress. Sentenced to death he is given power by dark forces and dons a haunting mask that creates his identity as an assassin. Given combinable supernatural abilities, various weapons and strange gadgets he sets out on missions in this corrupted world. Boasting flexible combat, the player can decide to use stealth, attack head-on, or combine the two strategies to play through the game. However, each of the player’s decisions will affect the outcomes of the missions.

About this flexibility, Raphael Colantonio, the co-creative director, states,

“It supports simulation and player choice, which is always a good thing from our standpoint.”

Dishonored can be preordered at the game’s website and is set to be released later this year.

Started off bad, but I've been having a lot of fun with it.
THIS IS THE GREATEST GAME EVER!!!
They made a new Diablo?
