No Daud About It: Dishonored – Knife Of Dunwall DLC

The headline is a lie, as they so often are, because there is actually a whole lot of Daud in Dishonored's first proper chunk of DLC. Following the trials thing, which I didn't bother with and have therefore dismissed completely, Knife of Dunwall is just what Dr DLC ordered. The player controls Daud, who will have "a unique arsenal of new weapons and powers that…

Dishonored’s The Knife Of Dunwall Unsheathed

After, ooh, hours of speculation, Bethesda has revealed the details of the next Dishonored expansion pack. The Knife Of Dunwall takes a parallel peek at the Dishonored storyline. And because Alec masked spoilers in the previous post, I'll do the same. If you have Dishonored on your Steam wishlist, go there right now and stare wistfully. Everyone else, I'll be over there. *blinks*

A Dishonorer Is You: Proper Dishonored DLC Teased

This shouldn't really get its own post grumble grumble because it's just a tease grumble grumble, but if I only give it a couple of lines there's no harm done. Wait, did I just hear the sound of kitten being killed? WHAT HAVE I DONE? We've been waiting forever* for proper Dishonored DLC - story stuff, meaty stuff, not just challenge map stuff. As previously…

Dishonored Dunwall City Trials Video Dishonored By Song

The first DLC for Dishonored is, as we know, the Dunwall City Trials. Rather than expanding the story in any meaningful way, this is much more of a mechanical inclusion, a series of tests to apply skills gained from playing the game in its rather beautiful setting. And there's a new trailer showing it in action. With the most inappropriate, dreadful music imaginable. Take action!…

Dishonored Sold An Awful Lot Of Copies: Franchise Born

I wonder what sales projections look like for Bethesda. The splendid news today is that Dishonored has outsold the publisher's expectations. But when they sell games like Skyrim, what must those expectations be like! Talking to Destructoid, the Mouth Of Bethesda, Pete Hines, was disappointingly cagey about saying exactly how many copies had sold (oh could this industry just GROW UP), but did explain that…

It’s Raining Whales: Dishonored Has Dun An Addon

The somewhat underwhelming in concept first DLC for Dishonored is, as we already knew, Dunwall City Trials. It's a challenge map pack rather than an expansion containing more long-game assassinations or world-building. This leaves me a little cold in principle, but perhaps there will be something to be said for using and combining the game's many combat, stealth and movement systems unfettered and without the…

Dishonored Starts Adding Bits On In December

Remember Dishonored? No, you're thinking of BioShock. Dishonored was the one with the Blinking. Yes! Gosh, those were the days. But soon we can relive them again, as Bethesda have announced a series of add-ons (not expansions, and not DLC - "add-ons") that will be coming out in coming months. First up in December (December?! That's hundreds of years away!) is Dunwall City Trials, and…

UK Charts: Dishonored 2, XCOM 7, Scunthorpe United 0

The UK game retail charts are about as relevant to PC gaming - and indeed gaming as a whole - as Mars Bars are to the red planet, knickers are to a fish or kindness is to the Murdoch dynasty. Nonethless, I feel compelled to mention this week's, purely because they suggest that even the most mainstream field of games isn't as resistent to new…

Feature: Staggering

No Oceans: Dishonored UK “Launch” Trailer Is Cruel

As RPS has long pointed out, staggered international release dates for games may well please high street stores, but they piss off just about everyone else in the world. The archaic, anachronistic notion that a game should come out on Tuesday in the US, and Friday in Europe, was pretty daft when a trip to the shops was the only way to get a game.…

Choose Your Own Stabventure In Dishonored’s New Trailer

Interactivity sure is neat, huh? Why, I bet one day we'll even be able to control the characters directly - like, with a mouse and keyboard. I know, I know: silly old Nathan and his craaaaaaazy ideas. Ah well, let's jump back to reality, where we abandoned our pursuit of true "video games" in favor of smellovision back in 1983. Today, I have for you an…

‘Experience’ Dishonored Without Experiencing Dishonored

Have you ever tried to explain your favorite game to a friend or family member who just didn't get it? Did you then decide - for some reason - to do it partially in French? That's the idea behind the latest in Dishonored's development documentary series, but thankfully with slightly more subtitles than real life. Also, heaps of gameplay footage, which is always nice. It's Arkane's…

Dishonored Devs To Speak At Eurogamer Expo

One of the developer sessions at this year's Eurogamer Expo (at Earls Court in London on 27th-30th of this month) will be hosted by Dishonored developers, Arkane. EG reports: Christophe Carrier (Lead Level Designer & Audio Director) and Dinga Bakaba (Assistant Producer & Game Designer) will introduce the game at length on Friday 28th September at 5pm and at midday on Saturday 29th September in…

Dishonored Devs Describe The Game’s “Inception”

Dishonored hardly needs a bigger sell from Bethesda, but this dev diary, featuring Raf Colantonio, Harvey Smith, Viktor Antonov and others, is certainly convincing. They talk about all the aspects we've heard before - the complex mechanics, the exquisite world design, the fiction - but more than the words are the in-game scenes that go with it, showing some aspects of the game we've not…

This Advergame Dishonors Dishonored

I fully endorse the idea of advertising videogames with other videogames - especially when it's done cleverly, ala Borderlands 2's recent 2D demake. I mean, it's sort of the logical conclusion to these things, right? Who wants to look at screenshots or watch a trailer when they can clomp through a world on their own three WASD fingers? And hey, Dishonored's looking incredible. Really, is…

Thief ‘N Stuff: Dishonored’s Stealth Study Trailer

I know there's an entire army of your screwing up your eyes and refusing to look at another jot of Dishonored coverage until it arrives in October, but for those not yet convinced there's still more to be seen. The latest game footage trailer (below) lays out a chunk of stealth business, which is something trailers seem to ignore when they are dealing with stealth…

Stab Palette: Dishonored Gets Creative With Its Lethality

Following on from the "Daring Escapes" trailer, Dishonored shows off more game-footage with "Creative Kills". This time we get to see a wide range of uses for Dishonored various powers, all of them pertaining to the dispatching of enemies. Ugly business. But what'a pretty game. And I get to play more of it at GamesCom next week. It's a hard life.

Dishonored Voice Cast Revealed: Sarandon! Dourif! Fisher!

Blimey, this is a cast and a half. Let's just plunge right in: Susan Sarandon will be playing, er, "Granny Rags", while the extraordinary Brad Dourif makes mouth noises for inventor Piero, creator of that scary mask worn by the game's protagonist, Corvo. Slightly more bizarrely, Bethesda inform us that Carrie Fisher "can be heard broadcasting government propaganda over loudspeakers throughout the city of Dunwall,…
