Bethesda Shows Off Dishonored Pre-Order Items

By Jonathan Barnes, 4 years ago
New IPs are a rare commodity this close to the end of a console cycle and, with that, the hype that's building around Arkane Studios' upcoming https://www.trueachievements.com/Dishonored-xbox-360.htm is rather singular.

Today, along with their publisher, Bethesda, the team is showing off a bit more detail on some of their previously-covered pre-order bonuses.

In the UK the Shadow Rat Pack will be available from Tesco (gamers in the US can get it from Best Buy):

* DELICATE TOUCH: Breaking Glass noise reduction
* VOYEUR: Key-hole peeping magnification
* DEEP BREATHER: Underwater breathing capacity bonus
* GOLDEN RAT STATUE: Unlocks one additional slot for bone charm bonuses (start with an extra slot earlier on)
* UNHIDDEN BOOK: "Filed Notes: The Royal Spy"
* 500 BONUS COINS



Shop.to.net (and Amazon in the US) will be featuring the Backstreet Butcher Pack:

* FENCER: sword vs. sword advantage bonus

Finally, GAME and GameStation (and GameStop in the US) will be receiving a Special Edition which will contain a set of Dishonored branded 72 tarot cards with instructions to play the "Game of Nancy" and the Arcane Assassin Pack which features:

* VOID CHANNEL: Powers duration and damage bonus

* WHALE IN-GAME STATUE: Unlocks one additional slot for bone charm bonuses (start with an extra slot earlier on)
