GameInformer has been teasing about their next magazine cover will be something completely out of left field and YEP it is!!
Bethesda’s next game is Dishonored, a first person stealth/action adventure game from Arkane Studios.
The minds of Raf Colantonio(founder of Arkane Studios) ,Harvey Smith(one of the main minds behind the first 2 Deus Ex games) and Viktor Antonov(Half-Life 2 City 17 designer) are all coming together to create something that breaks the standard the FPS games have molded.
Here is what GI had to say about the game themselves after seeing it in action and the official press release as well.
We’ve seen the game running, and now we share Colantonio and Smith’s vision too. 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. 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.
Dishonored is a game we can’t wait to tell you more about.
