Watch The Cinematic From Bethesda’s New Game ‘Dishonored’

You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is being besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government armed with neo-industrial technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you, abilities beyond those of any common man – 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.

This is the description of the new game from Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studio, debuting the great cinematic trailer you see below. The game seems to be played like a first person Assassin’s Creed, only your Assassin has superpowers. Along with the powers shown in the trailer such as stopping time, you can also teleport and possess creatures in the game world to use to your advantage.

A novel approach to a largely dominated genre, it will be interesting to see how it turns out.
