Welcome to Player Attack!
This week sees Dishonored finally hit shelves. This BioShock meets Half-Life meets Thief has brought with it a unique blend action, stealth and steampunk, so it's understandable that gamers might feel a little overwhelmed. It's okay though, Harvey Smith, co-creative director at Arkane Studios has taken the time to share a few helpful tidbits when it comes to playing Dishonored.
...but wait! There's more! Point your browser at the Bethesda blog to read up on the rest of Harvey Smith's protips for Dishonored, keeping in mind he's one of a small handful of men who know the game better than anyone.
The team at Arkane is really thrilled about Dishonored and we hope that players enjoy it. Raph and I – along with everyone else who worked on the game – appreciate all the recent attention and we’re looking forward to hearing stories and seeing YouTube videos created by everyone ranging from methodical explorers and stealth players to crazy speed-runners using their supernatural powers to blaze through second or third play-throughs.
Take care and have fun!
Dishonored is out right now for North American audiences, while Australia and Japan are waiting for October 11th, and Europe doesn't get theirs until Friday, October 12th.
I like video games, fishing, Depeche Mode, long walks on the beach, writing discussion papers and cups of tea. Not necessarily in that order.
