10 things you need to know about: Dishonored

Today we're focusing on the well-received new IP from Bethesda which blends first-person action and stealth combat in a unique game world.


  1. A mixture of stealth-action and combat, very much a part of the lineage of Thief, System Shock and Bioshock.
  2. Freeform gameplay which allows the player to direct the pace and style of the gameplay.
  3. Comes from Arcane studios, creators of Arx Fatalis.
  4. Co-Creative Directed by Harvey Smith (Deus Ex)  and Raf Colantonio (Arx Fatalis, Dark Messiah of Might and Magic).
  5. Voice talent including: Susan Sarandon, Carrie Fisher, Chloe Moretz, Michael Madsen, John Slattery and Lena Headey.
  6. The game world, Dunwall, is a distinct steam/diesel-punk world with Elizabethan era influences.
  7. Visual Design Director is Viktor Antonov, art director from Half Life 2 who created City 17 (the feel of which is noticeable in the game).
  8. An array of supernatural abilities not dissimilar to the plasmids from Bioshock.
  9. A game-length which varies from quite short to quite long depending on what the player wants and how much they wish to delve into side-quests.
  10. Bethesda-published game, the creative force behind The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
