For the past few months, Bethesda has been offering plenty of gameplay videos for their latest big title, Dishonored. While stealth action games are nothing new to the gaming world, it allows you total control over your actions in the game, each of which have their consequences. In addition to sneaking past or taking down your enemies, you can also use your supernatural abilities in some truly creative ways. This is probably the first (or one of the first) assassination games to offer such versatility in gameplay -- the more we see, the more enticing those possibilities are.  

 

To further our experience with this cool new game, Bethesda has been announcing several new documentary-style videos which go behind the scenes with the development team, Arkane Studios as they discuss the concept, design and gameplay of Dishonored.  Aptly titled "Inception", "Immersion" and "Experiencethese mini-docs each offer a wealth of knowledge straight from the developers.  

 

The subtleties in movement, character design, architecture and atmosphere are lovingly covered in each doc and really opened up my mind to what Arkane is working so hard to build.  That attention to detail and wide breadth of inspiration are probably some of the wininng factors for Dishonored, as well as the gameplay choices.  One of my favourites, described in "Experience", had to do with the Possession ability and how possessing someone or something mid-fall will kill inertia and save you from an untimely death. At the same time my boyfriend pointed out that doing a fast-travel (or teleport) mid-fall will probably serve the same purpose. The possibilities are endless.  Creativity is key to navigating through this game so it's worth studying and experimenting with each ability in-game and find what works best for you.  

Dishonored will be released in North America on October 9 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
