Dishonored picks up pace

Since Skyrim has come and gone, Bethesda Softworks are busy beavering away at their latest, Steampunk inspired first person action game – Dishonored. While the U is missing from the title and is punishable by moaning, they have released 6 brand new screenshots and a few extra details to boot.

While the game is set in a alternative universe where the victorian age meets a post-apocalyptic styling where absolutely anything is possible, you take on the role of a man who is out to clear his name from a murder he did not commit.

Given strange powers by a strange, unknown man, our one time guard to the princess has the ability to posses people, animals or even fish in the river to take one of two routes through each level. Either a quiet, stealth tactic is implied much like Assassin’s Creed or an all out action game can be taken.

Dishonored will be out in the shops on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 by the end of the year.
