Dishonored was one of the more intriguing titles in 2012, a rare breed that sold well and met with good critical acclaim. For those who missed out, Bethesda has just released a Dishonored: Game of the Year Edition, which is now available in stores for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The Dishonored: Game of the Year Edition includes the full original game, plus all DLC released to date.
For those taking notes at home, that means that Dishonored: Game of the Year Edition includes Dunwall City Trials, The Knife of Dunwall, The Brigmore Witches and Void Walker’s Arsenal.
The game casts players in the role of Corvo, a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. With Dishonored’s flexible combat system, gamers can creatively eliminate targets as they combine the supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at their disposal.
The gameplay is more than just combat, though. Players can pursue enemies under the cover of darkness in addition to ruthlessly attacking them head-on. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices players make.
Dishonored: Game of the Year Edition is the definitive compilation of a title that won more than 100 Game of the Year Awards. So no, it’s not just a way to sell a few more products or fight for attention and shelf space. This game is good, and the new SKU is a great opportunity for people to check it out if they missed the game last year.
And hey, if you’re looking for a last-ditch effort to run your current-gen console through its paces before the Xbox One and PS4 ship in just over a month, Dishonored: Game of the Year Edition would be a great way to give the current console generation a proper send-off.
