Yesterday Bethesda announced Dishonored, a steampunkish assassin game. It looks really interesting, and I’m glad they’re doing something fresh. A lot of people seem to be disappointed that their big announcement was for this and not Skyrim DLC, but I have no idea why. From the blog:
You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is being besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government armed with neo-industrial technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you, abilities beyond those of any common man â€“ but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever.
What do you think? Looks exciting, no? I love original content and I have a teensy secret love for Bethesda, too, so hopefully it’ll be good!
