It's a known fact that steampunk can be rather pleasing. It's all the more so when a game like Dishonored comes along. With E3 just around the corner, Bethesda and Arcane have released a gameplay trailer that's bound to roll some heads.
If there's a way to sum up Dishonored's gameplay, it's that it looks a lot like an amalgamation of BioShock and Assassin's Creed. You play as an assassin with a grudge, equipped with some very frightening supernatural abilities, naturally.
Dishonored features an interesting chaos mechanic, where your actions will have consequences, affecting the way the game is played. Kill from the shadows, or combine your powers with your gadgets. Get creative.
You'll be slicing throats with a rusty cleaver come October 9 on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
