New dev documentary goes behind-the-scenes of the making of Dishonored
Bethesda has released a new video series taking a look at their upcoming IP, Dishonored. For those unfamiliar, Dishonored is a unique first-person title that combines stealth gameplay elements with action-oriented combat.
In it, you play as Corvo, a supernatural assassin drive by revenge. Using the highly-touted flexible combat system, you combine supernatural abilities with high-tech weapons and gadgets to quickly and quietly dispose of your foes. The flexible combat system allows you to choose between moving under the cover or darkness or ruthlessly eliminate enemies head on — each a totally viable option, but with a different outcome based on the choices you make.
To date, we've seen plenty of intriguing gameplay clips to get us excited for Dishonored, but today's video — the first in a series of developer documentaries for Dishonored — goes behind-the-scenes with the development team at Arkane Studios. Titled "Inception", you'll hear from many of Dishonored's developer team including co-creative directors Harvey Smith and Raphael Colantonio as they discuss the concept and creation of Dishonored while providing insights into developing its unique world.
Dishonored will be available in North America on October 9, 2012 and throughout Europe on October 12, 2012. It is set to release on Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
