Dishonored Devs Try To Pin Down "Immersion"


The Dishonored video bombardment will leave nothing standing. Eventually all that will remain of former gaming websites will be a flickering screen and a hyperlink pointing at digital vendors of Bethesda's next big game.

There's a tonne of stuff on the architecture, of course, and it's inevitably full of lavish new glimpses the Dishonored world, too.
