Last month at E3 I was shown a demo of a new game from Bethesda called Dishonored. Unfortunately at the time it was a “behind closed doors” session, but now that demo is available for everyone to see.
Dishonored casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. Creatively eliminate your targets with the flexible combat system as you combine supernatural abilities with weapons and gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your targets 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.
Below are some images from the game:
In these videos, Co-Creative Directors Raphael Colantonio and Harvey Smith guide you through two different play-throughs of ‘The Golden Cat’. The first video shows a stealthier approach to eliminating The Pendleton Brothers, two corrupt aristocrats. The second video depicts the more direct, action-oriented style of play to assassinate the targets. In addition to ‘The Golden Cat’, the second video illustrates a fight with the Tallboys who are patrolling the streets in ‘The Flooded District’. Both videos were shot using non-final code and all the powers and gadgets have been unlocked to help with the demo.
Here is part 1 (its just over 14 minutes long):
And here is part 2 (at a shorter 8 minutes long):
Dishonored will be available in the UK on October 12, 2012, and is slated for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
I have to say that I was really impressed with the demo and I can’t wait to see more. October is going to be a great month for gamers!
