Arkane Studios' upcoming assassination FPS emerges from the shadows with new screenshots featuring abilities, pretty ladies.
The steampunk action game looks to have at least some surface similarities with the style and execution of this year's Bioshock Infinite, but the shift in focus from straight-up action to stealth might be all that it takes for the Bethesda-published Dishonored to carve out its own niche this year. Our own Clint Mize got to check it out recently, and came away impressed with what Arkane was cooking up.

Here's the official synopsis for the game:
Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where strange steampunk- inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows. You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only 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 industrial technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man – 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.
Dishonored will arrive on the PS3, PC, and Xbox 360 later this year.
