Arkane Studios’ stealth-driven FPS is now available.
Bethesda Softworks has announced that Arkane Studios’ first-person action game, Dishonored, is now available at retail in North America. Dishonored puts an emphasis on player choice, similar to Deus Ex, which co-director Harvey Smith also developed. Smith co-directed alongside Raphael Colantonio, lead designer on Arx Fatalis. Dishonored has already won over many critics, and has won over 50 awards at the 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) as well GamesCom’s “Game of the Show.”
“We wanted to create a very physical first-person action game that encourages players to play the way they want by providing them with versatile game systems” said Raphael Colantonio, President, Arkane Studios. “We’ve watched gamers play Dishonored at consumer events and we’ve seen some amazing gameplay choices and power combinations. We’re very proud of our development team’s final product, and excited to see the game in the hands of gamers.”
“The team at Arkane Studios set out to create an original game with a deep story, set in an immersive world, full of player choice…and they have delivered on all aspects,” said Vlatko Andonov, President, Bethesda Softworks. “We couldn’t be more proud of Dishonored and can’t wait for fans to finally get their hands on it.”
Dishonored features critically acclaimed actors such as Academy Award winner, Susan Sarandon (“Thelma & Louise,” “Dead Man Walking”), Golden Globe winner, Brad Dourif (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest”), Emmy Award nominees Carrie Fisher (original “Star Wars” trilogy) and John Slattery (“Mad Men”), Michael Madsen (“Thelma & Louise,” “Reservoir Dogs,” “Kill Bill”) and Lena Headey (“300,” “Game of Thrones”). Composer Daniel Licht (“Dexter”) has created the game’s musical score.
Dishonored is now available in North America and will be available throughout Europe on October 12, 2012 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Games For Windows PC.
