Bethesda’s Dishonored Debuts with Amazing Trailer

Dishonored is a new steampunk-style assassination game in the works from Bethesda that looks to contain a cross between FPS and RPG elements–think Skyrim meets Assassin’s Creed. You play as the disgraced guard of an empress, now accused of her murder. A mysterious figure breaks you out of jail to bring your revenge as a supernatural assassin. The game will offer the ability to play as stealthily or as brashly as you choose, much like Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The trailer above details some of the story elements, along with stunning visuals and that fantastic steampunk art style.

And if the shots of the town and the oppressive, technologically advanced government in the trailer feel eerily familiar to you, that’s for good reason: Bethesda has signed on Half-Life 2 art director Viktor Antonov to work on Dishonored. Talk about an all-star combination! If everything comes together, we could be looking at a Game of the Year contender. We’ve certainly seen that impressive trailers don’t always result in success (I’m looking at you, Dead Island), but they sure do get your blood pumping for a new kind of game.

Dishonored is due out this year, but no firm release date has been announced. In the meantime, you should probably just sit and watch this trailer on repeat.

    I’m a sucker for all things steampunk. Also my boner got in the way of my money when I tried to throw it at the screen.

  6. Y2Ken says:

    Really super enjoyed the setting and the tone of this trailer. Very interested to see how it converts to actual gameplay though – story is certainly very important, but it needs to play well too. It’s Bethesda so hopefully they’ll do this trailer some justice.

  7. Ofenlicht says:

    This game looks awesome. Like a steampunk AC.
    And I have faith in Bethesda that they will make a bearable PC version.
    Can’t wait for it.

  8. Reserving judgement until a gameplay trailer is released. It’s all well and good putting out a shiny, expensive looking CGI trailer, but it doesn’t show us anything of the actual game. Who knows, maybe Bethesda will surprise me this once.

  9. Fidees says:

    Anybody know a general time frame for release?

  10. Blakanillous says:

    It’s Assassins Creed but good.

  11. MrBop says:

    Shut the fuck up and take my damn money!!!

  12. SrgMore says:

    I’m throwing money at the screen BUT NOTHING IS HAPPENING!

  13. ASoggySandal says:

    *Same joke about throwing money at the screen + boners*

  14. TheBrad says:

    From what I can tell none of the contributors have really played The Witcher 2, but this game seems to have aspects of that game in it as well.

  15. OGAgent says:

    Too me this looked extremely like a Bioshock trailer, which means its awesome. Cannot wait for this game!

  17. It should probably be said that Bethesda are publishing this, not developing it. The developers are Arkane Studios.
