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.
