bethesda dishonored We get Dishonored on 10/9/12

Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios want us to mark our calendars for October 9th of this year – that is the official release date of their upcoming title, Dishonored.   Before I tell you a bit about the game, let me tell you that you first must go watch the reveal trailer and check out the website.  Seriously…I’m asking you to leave GamingTrend and go visit the official site.  Yea..it’s that cool.

Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where steampunk- inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows. You are Corvo, the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress who has been murdered. Framed for the crime, you become an infamous assassin, known by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is besieged by plague and ruled by a corrupt government armed with frightening technologies, dark forces bestow supernatural abilities upon you – but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever.

Creatively eliminate your enemies with Dishonored’s flexible combat system as you combine supernatural abilities with weapons and gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your targets under the cover of darkness or boldly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.

The release date announcement came with new box art which you can check out by hitting our game record or a much bigger version below.    Looking forward to getting hands-on with this title at E3!
