Bethesda Softworks have announced a brand new first person action title, Dishonored, which is being developed by Arkane Studios and led by two prominent industry figures: Harvey Smith, lead designer on the first two Deus Ex titles, and Raphael Colantonio, lead designer on Arx Fatalis. In addition to the two co-directors, Viktor Antanov, most well known for his work on Half-Life 2's City 17, will be bringing the world of Dishonored to life.
"Dishonored is the antithesis of a edge-of-your-seat roller-coaster ride. It's a game about assassination where you don't have to kill anyone," says Game Informer. "It's a game about infiltration where you can set up traps and slaughter the entire garrison of an aristocrat's mansion rather than sneak in.
"It's a game about brutal violence where you can slip in and out of a fortified barracks with nobody ever knowing you were there. It's a game about morality and player choice where the world you create is based on your actions, not navigating conversation trees."
