Watch a Riveting Steampunk Assassination in Dishonored's Debut Trailer
Finally, Bethesda and Arkane Studios' stealth FPS Dishonored has stepped nimbly out of the shadows and graced us with a long-overdue trailer. It features the unjustly framed Corvo, our protagonist who's sentenced for the murder of an empress. While the gripping trailer shows no in-game footage, it sets up the grim totalitarian world of Dishonored impressively, and gives us a glimpse of Corvo in action with some pretty slick powers of assassination. If you're getting waves BioShock déjà vu from this, that can only mean a good thing. Even as Corvo frantically dashes outdoors we're seeing glimpses of Half-Life 2's City 17 to good effect, although in contrast Dishonored's corpse-littered streets are plagued with a thriving population of rats. If we're lucky enough, we'll be traversing Dishonored's virtual dystopian city this year.
