Dishonored Has a Release Date

Get your steam-punk assassin skills tuned up before October 9.

Bethesda has announced that its visually impressive assassin title, Dishonored, will be released on October 9.  Published for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC, the game looks to have taken ideas from Assassin's Creed and extrapolated them into some new and potentially interesting territory.

Set in an industrial, plague-ridden city, you become an assassin fighting against a corrupt government and its steam-punk forces. Incorporating a mix of rudimentary tech and supernatural powers, Bethesda hopes that Dishonored will offer something unique to players. Press will have an opportunity to try the game at E3, and the general public may have their chance at Quake Con later this year.

BETHESDA SOFTWORKS MARKS OCTOBER 9, 2012 LAUNCH DATE FOR DISHONORED™

Arkane Studios’ Supernatural Assassin Action Game Available Worldwide This Fall

May 10, 2012 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax® Media company, today announced that Dishonored, the supernatural assassin action game under development at Arkane® Studios, will be available in North America on October 9, 2012 and throughout Europe on October 12, 2012. Developed under the direction of co-creative directors Raphael Colantonio and Harvey Smith, Dishonored is slated for release on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, and Games for Windows.

Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where steampunk- inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows. You are Corvo, the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress who has been murdered. Framed for the crime, you become an infamous assassin, known by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is besieged by plague and ruled by a corrupt government armed with frightening technologies, dark forces bestow supernatural abilities upon you – but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever.


Creatively eliminate your enemies with Dishonored’s flexible combat system as you combine supernatural abilities with weapons and gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your targets under the cover of darkness or boldly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.


“We are pleased that Dishonored has captured people’s attention,” said Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks. “We are looking forward to sharing lots more information about the game leading up to its launch in October, and having a hands-on build of Dishonored in our booth at E3!”

Dishonored has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
