Dishonored Debuts Its First Trailer

By Mark Delaney, 6 years ago
This trailer from Arkane Studios and Bethesda represents a fragment of the gaming industry that has somehow become a rarity as of late. As multiplayer games rise in popularity and the business is dominated by sequel after sequel, a fresh, new intellectual property is a miraculous thing to behold. When Dishonored was announced last year, gamers grew very excited for too many reasons to even count -- not the least of which are the brooding atmosphere and compelling plotline. Both of those things, and plenty more, are on display in this first ever trailer for the game.

The dystopian environments bleed with atmosphere; one part goth, one part Steampunk, and a hint of BioShock, I'd say. How would you describe the world of Dishonored? Check out all of the past news for Arkane's work right here. Dishonored is on pace for release sometime this year.
