It’s been a long time coming, but Bethesda has today unveiled the debut trailer for their first-person action game Dishonored.
Developed by Arkane Studios, Dishonored puts you in the shoes of a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. You were once the trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress, but framed for her murder, you’ve now become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. Set in a city besieged by a 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.
Dishonored’s gameplay will revolve around you creatively eliminating your targets via the flexible combat system, as you combine the numerous supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal to achieve your objectives. You can choose to pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission will depend on the choices you make throughout the game.
Sounds interesting, right? We saw Dishonored in action at Gamescom last year, and can safely say it’s a title you’ll want to keep an eye on. Check out the debut trailer below and be sure to let us know what you think via the comments section.
Dishonored is slated for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2012.
