Bethesda and Arkane Studios would like to invite you to get your supernatural first-person assassin on in October.
October 9th, to be precise for the U.S., with Europe to follow on the 12th. With Bioshock Infinite vacating its October 16th perch yesterday, it looks like another unusual first-person action game will fill the vacuum left by Irrational’s title.
Here’s the updated synopsis for the game:
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.
