Dishonored is the name of a new game coming out later this year courtesy of Bethesda and Arkane Studios, and they’ve just released a debut trailer which you can check out below.
The release of the trailer was foreshadowed by Bethesda yesterday when they tweeted a screengrab from it. Some thought this might have been Bethesda simply teasing some new DLC for Skyrim, while others correctly predicted it was in relation to the unveiling of Dishonored.
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 strange 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.
