Steampunk is alive and well within Dishonored, an in-development title that mixes elements from our civilization’s past, present and potential future, in order to create a unique open world environment. Throwing players into a vengeance-filled storyline, the game showcases a plot line where a distinguished guard has been framed for royal assassination. As any innocent man would do, he plans to clear his tarnished name. However, this time around, special powers and some great combat skills (with both blades and guns) provide the potential for bloody payback.
Today, Bethesda Softworks released new screenshots and concept artwork for Dishonored, which is being developed by Arkane Studios. If that name doesn’t sound familiar, then prepare to have your interest piqued. The lead designers on this project have impressive resumes:
