Bethesda Softworks today announced that Dishonored, the supernatural assassin action game under development at Arkane Studios, will be available throughout Europe on 12 October 2012 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
‘We are pleased that Dishonored has captured people’s attention,’ said Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks. ‘We are looking forward to sharing lots more information about the game leading up to its launch in October, and having a hands-on build of Dishonored in our booth at E3.’
Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where steampunk-inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows. Players assume the role of Corvo who, having been framed for the murder of his beloved Empress, becomes an assassin to gain vengeance upon those responsible.
Yes, it does all sound somewhat familiar but the supernatural abilities at Corvo’s disposal, the flexible combat system and a unique visual style have all marked Dishonored as one of those titles right at the top of our watchlist. Roll on October.
