As we have said before, Dishonored is shaping up to be a great game. If you guys don't know, Dishonored follows the story of Corvo (an assassin with super natural powers) as he sets to get revenge on all who wronged him and finally set things right. The entire game is about revenge as evidenced by the game's tag line "Revenge solves everything".
The game to me feels like a mash up of Assassin's Creed and Bioshock, which is why I am so psyched for it! Players will have at their disposal a wealth of gadgets, weapons and powers with which to slay their enemies. A recent gameplay trailer not only shows a few of the cool powers and weapons players will get but, also how to combine the powers to kill the enemies in creative and fun ways!
My favorite is the "Friendly Fire" where you first get an enemy to shoot at you and then "Bend Time" to stop the bullet in mid air, and then "Possess" the other individual to place him in the path of fire; end result is that he shoots himself! There are plenty more to see so check out the video (link given below).
As the developers said, players have complete freedom in how they want to go about killing their enemies. Each level has several ways to enter and move around in. Players can choose to be sneaky or go in guns blazing. From my initial impression, Arkane Studios have done an amazing job. The sandboxy nature of each level and the degree of freedom they have allowed the players to have in them is going to be the game's main attraction.
Dishonored is set to be released 12th of October 2012 for Xbox 360 and PS3 with the PC version following soon after. Be sure to keep a check on our website as we bring you more info about Dishonored as soon as they are revealed.
