Share

Bethesda have just revealed the début trailer for Dishonored, their first-person sneak-em-up slated for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC later in 2012, developed by Arkane Studios.

As a supernatural assassin framed for the murder of his beloved Empress, you take to the rooftops to dish out cold revenge, aided by a mysterious benefactor in a city besieged by plague.

Though there’s no gameplay footage to speak of yet, it’s still looking pretty cool. We’re getting whiffs of Assassin’s Creed, Crysis, Bioshock and Half-Life 2 all rolled into one here, which can hardly be a bad thing.

Click the video above to watch the first clip. We’ve been invited to a Dishonored preview event this week too, so keep an eye out for more news on the game from Tech Digest very soon.
