Dishonored Screenshots Emerge from the Gloom

By Rebecca Smith, 6 years ago
Arkane Studio's enters players into Dunwall, an industrial whaling city set in a steampunk era where neo-industrial technology and mysticism coexist in the background. The first-person action game sees players take on the role of a once-trusted bodyguard who has been framed for the murder of the Empress. Driven by revenge and unable to return to the life you once knew, you become a supernatural assassin who uses a mask as your calling card.

The city is besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government, but dark forces unite to grant you with abilites beyond those of the common city dweller. The flexible combat system in the game allows players to use the supernatural abilities, weapons or gadgets to eliminate the targets in a variety of ways. Use stealth or go in with guns blazing - it's your choice - but the outcome of each mission depends on your method of approach.

Here are some of the game's features:

Improvise and Innovate
Approach each assassination with your own style of play. Use shadow and sound to your advantage to make your way silently through levels unseen by foes, or attack enemies head-on as they respond to your aggressiveness. The flexible combat system allows you to creatively combine your abilities, supernatural powers and gadgets as you make your way through the levels and dispatch your targets. Improvise and innovate to define your play style.

Action with Meaning
The world of Dishonored reacts to how you play. Move like a ghost and resist corruption, or show no mercy and leave a path of destruction in your wake. Decide your approach for each mission, and the outcomes will change as a result.

Supernatural Abilities
Teleport for stealth approaches, possess any living creature, or stop time itself to orchestrate unearthly executions! Combining your suite of supernatural abilities and weapons opens up even more ways to overcome obstacles and eliminate targets. The game’s upgrade system allows for the mastery of deadly new abilities and devious gadgets.

A City Unlike Any Other
Enter an original world envisioned by Half-Life 2 art director Viktor Antonov. Arkane and Bethesda bring you a world where industry and mysticism collide, creating an atmosphere thick with intrigue. The world is yours to discover.
