If you really think about it, don't you find it a little surprising that we've never had a video game with this title before?

Well, anyway, Bethesda has confirmed the new project in development at the publisher's new studio, Arkane Studios. It's called Dishonored and you can find the early details at Game Informer ; the game is set to release for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC next year.

Dubbed a "first-person action game," this one steals the cover of the upcoming August issue, and for the most part, it certainly sounds intriguing. We still wonder how you can make a game about assassination without the consequences of death, but…well, read the description for yourself:

"…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."

We'll have to learn more about this one but for now, the idea seems both original and engaging.

Man, that sounds epic! And if it's made by Bethesda, you know it's bound to be a good game! ūüôā

It's not being "made" by Bethesda Game Studios (Obliviion, Fallout). It's being released by Bethesda. Similar to how Rage is being released by Bethesda. Arkane Studios are the guys actually making the game.

Sounds very interesting. I like it.
Hope this team making is a good one. I hate it when awesome and original ideas come out and the developers just kill it because they… Well, Suck.

But the game wouldn't be any fun if I went through it without killing anyone.

This describes perfectly something I've been hoping to see a game do for a while. If they can achieve what they're promising this will be an epic experience. I'm not particularly familiar with Arkane's previous games (Arx Fatalis, and Dark Messiah of Might and Magic) and a quick look at meta critic doesn't show anything special (Scores in the 70s). But some of the creative leads on this project look amazing. Harvey Smith is acting as Creative Director, dude was a major force behind Deus Ex and System Shock. And Viktor Antonov was the art director for Half Life 2. With Bethesda's money behind this team, the sky is truly the limit. I hope they don't dissapoint.

Sounds quite interesting, so I'll await my copy of GI to arrive so I can have the full story in my hands.

this sounds really interesting will have to pick up this issue of Game informer. I like games like this making you use your brain and have tons of choices.
