One of the games we’ll see at E3 next week, Bethesda Softworks’ Dishonored, now has an official release date: October 9. Dishonored is a supernatural assassin action game being developed by development at Arkane Studios and slated for release on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The game will ship in Europe three days later.
Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where steampunk- inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows. You are Corvo, the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress who has been murdered. Framed for the crime, you become an infamous assassin, known by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is besieged by plague and ruled by a corrupt government armed with frightening technologies, dark forces bestow supernatural abilities upon you – but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever.
Creatively eliminate your enemies with Dishonored’s flexible combat system as you combine supernatural abilities with weapons and gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your targets under the cover of darkness or boldly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.
We’ll have more info about Dishonored, including hands-on impressions, from E3 next week.
