Yesterday, Bethesda posted a mysterious screencap on Facebook of a dirty, grizzly man with the caption “Tomorrow.” We knew that they would unveil something today, but we weren’t sure what. Skyrim DLC perhaps? Maybe even something pertaining to Fallout?

Our hunches said it would be regarding Dishonored, Arkane Studios’ upcoming first-person stealth game with an awesome steampunk style. That’s exactly what it turns out to be. Today, we’re graced with the debut trailer for Dishonored.

From the YouTube description:

Dishonored casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. 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 strange technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man.

In Dishonored, creatively eliminate your targets with the flexible combat system as you combine the numerous supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.

And without further ado, the (uncommonly long) debut trailer:
