Arkane’s Dishonored is very exciting and feels like it’s getting nearer, but that might be an evil, supernatural trick being played on us. While we haven’t had a release date for the amazing sounding immersive sim, Bethesda have started to open up more about the setting, the world, what you do. More importantly in this crazy world of ocular pleasure, they’re releasing screenshots and video of the supernatural assassin’s redemptive bloodletting. If I cared about PR buzzwords, I’d call what follows a ‘media blast’, but I’m a loose cannon. Hit the jump for the *checks thesaurus* ‘cable peal’.
Gamespot chatted with the art brains Viktor Antov and Sebastien Mitton about the city of Dunwall’s expressive architecture. It’s partly based on 1940s London.
And now the new screens. The art style is a clear meshing of two ideas: you can see the Half-Life 2 influence from Antov, but I think Mitton has a greater influence in the character design.
