02 Bethesda debuts cinematic trailer for Dishonored

There's little detail on the game shared out as yet, but from what we're hearing and seeing despite the lack of any gameplay footage is that the game will potentially be quite the standout with various popular gameplay elements rolled into one. Here's a brief on the storyline :-

"Dishonored casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. 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 being besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government armed with strange technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man".

If you can imagine a mixture of Assassin's Creed, Thief, Crysis, Bioshock and Half-Life 2 you'll be no doubt quick to agree that it does sound like a winning combination if implemented intelligently enough. It's certainly peaked interest at this point and we'll be sure to keep you updated throughout the rest of the game's development.

For now, enjoy the impressive cinematic trailer below and hopefully we'll see some actual gameplay footage before too long to get a better idea of what's on the cards.
