abundantly wrote about the openness of this new IP, in the first Achievement Preview Spotlight
If a look at the achievement list was not enough to drive the point home, Arkane Studios has released a new trailer, in which you follow Corvo during a mission. The video is particularly effective in detailing the branching paths in gameplay, as you will dictate how it plays out. At certain points during the mission, the video will pause and different approaches will be suggested to you. Pick stealth, arcane powers or open conflict and lead Corvo to his goal, but pick carefully as the wrong choice will lead you to an early grave.
is set for a release on October 9th in North America and October 12th in Europe.
