There are just about two weeks left before Bethesda and Arkane Studios' Dishonored arrives, which puts players in the shoes of supernatural assassin Corvo. To get you in the mood for the game, a three-part webisode series called "The Tales from Dunwall" gives a firsthand look into the "shadowy whaling world of Dunwall." Plague is rampant in the city, as Dunwall is in disarray and on the verge of dystopia. The first part, "The Awakening," is provided below, and hopefully the next two parts arrive soon. Chloë Grace Moretz ("Kick-Ass", "Hugo") narrates the series, which serve as a prequel to Dishonored, while Daniel Licht ("Dexter") provides the musical score. "Tales from Dunwall" was created mostly from hand by Psyop, which was then enhanced with "3D elements" to capture the look and feel of the game.
Dishonored lands on October 9 in North America, October 11 in Australia, and October 12 in Europe for the PC, PS3, and 360.
