The newest cover of Game Informer has revealed a brand new game from Bethesda and Arkane Studios called Dishonored. The game is a first-person stealth game set in a stylized, futuristic world.
This is the first release by Arkane Studios, creators of Arx Fatalis, since their acquisition by Bethesda, and the game is certainly not lacking in the talent department. The development team boasts Arkane co-founder Raphael Colantonio, Deus Ex developer Harvey Smith, and designer Viktor Antonov, most famous for his creation of City 17 for Half-Life 2.
Dishonored is being described as an open-ended adventure in which player’s actions have a meaningful impact on the world itself. Players will be able to decide how they tackle various mission objectives, ranging from stealth-oriented approaches to head-on battles.
Dishonored is set for release sometime in 2012 for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Given the ambitious vision and the pedigree of the development team, this will definitely be one to watch.
