A Good Assassin Always Has More Than One Escape Route

    July 26, 2012

We’ve been covering Dishonored for a while now and for good reason – it looks amazing. The first person stealth action game from Arkane Studios offers everything that I’ve ever wanted out of the genre. With new trailers hitting all the time, it’s getting harder to wait for the October release date.

Today’s trailer is a sequel of sorts to the last Dishonored trailer that showed how one can go about performing their contract kills. Players have an option of either being stealthy or outright chaotic in regards to their kills. The guards aren’t going to take an assassination lightly, so you’re going to have to escape. Thankfully, there are a multitude of options available to the player which are highlighted in the trailer below:

All three methods of escape involve using the magic at the player’s disposal. One can either use magic jumps to reach high places, bend time to make their escape or possess enemies to avoid detection. That’s just three of what must be countless ways to escape.

The team at Arkane Studios promises the next video will be about creative kills. If they’re anywhere as creative as the escape methods just shown, I think we’ll have a hit on our hands come October. Dishonored will be available on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on October 12.
