Bethesda Shows Off Debut Trailer for Dishonored

Published

 on

The upcoming steampunk assassin game, Dishonored, released its first trailer today. According to Bethesda’s blog, the Arkane Studios game stars an ex-bodyguard of the Empress who has been framed for murder and is now driven by revenge. The character is recognized by a creepy skull-like mask that appears to affect his perception in the video.

Dishonored is set in a dystopian European-inspired country overtaken by a plague with an oppressive rule and some curious politics at play. Citizens are brutally killed by mechanical guards that rove the territory while distant leaders look on without emotion. However, mysterious elements do exist in this world; the protagonist receives a strange mark from a supernatural being and the trailer implies this leads to his escape from captivity. This footage has granted viewers a narrow glimpse into the complex and potentially chaotic world of Dishonored.

According to the blog, Dishonored allows the player to use “numerous supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets” along with a “flexible combat system” to assassinate targets with subtlety and stealth or openly with deadly weapons. Choices made by the player will affect the outcome of each mission.

Dishonored is set for release in 2012. Check out the trailer here, or visit the Dishonored site to learn more.

Troy Baker has spoken about his return to the role of Joel in Naughty Dog’s upcoming title The Last of Us Part II.

During an exclusive interview with OnlySP at Supanova Comic Con & Gaming, Baker was asked how he felt to return to the role alongside Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in the sequel to the acclaimed 2013 title.

“The first day we were on set was when we shot [the PSX reveal] trailer,” Baker revealed. “We go through rehearsals and stuff, and we walk through it, and things get real serious all of a sudden, when we heard both of our voices. When you put everything together, that’s when Ashley goes away and Troy goes away, and you’re left with Ellie and Joel.”

Baker noted that the first time creative director Neil Druckmann spoke to him about the potential of a sequel was during the British Academy Video Game Awards in March 2014.

Check out a clip from our exclusive interview with Troy Baker and Nolan North—including the revelation of North’s return as David and the significant musical numbers featured in the game—above, and stay tuned for the full interview.

Druckmann recently revealed that Baker and Johnson had completed their main work on the game, describing it as “the most ambitious cinematic shoot we’ve ever done.” Before that, he stated that the final scene of The Last of Us Part II has been shot, with Laura Bailey recently completing her performance capture for the title. Druckmann also revealed that the rapper Logic and actor Travis Willingham will also be appearing in the game.

Earlier this month, a screen of the game’s weapon upgrade system was leaked in a promotional video, with some noting that weapon variation may be present in the game’s revision of combat.
