It’s been covered for months now, and was just released — the first-person assassin game, Dishonored. Set in a steampunk world where an empire of swords and cloth uniforms has discovered whale oil, transforming it to an industrial superpower of guns, war ships, and advanced defense technology. On the flipside, assassins also have access to magical power granted by the Outsider, an unknown, yet powerful entity who alerts you of your possible actions while playing the game. And this all happens while the city is under a deadly rat plague.
Dishonored is the perfect recipe for mayhem, cloaked in revenge for being betrayed. And this all really hits the fan because the Empress is murdered, and her only heir is Emily, the daughter (that apparently it seems like you, Corvo the Lord Protector, conceived with her). Damn.
Bethesda was kind enough to hand us a Steam code for the review of the game, and my full impressions of the game can be read, after the break.
