The lights are on
Revenge is the cornerstone of Dishonored – it's in the game's tagline after all – and this new trailer highlights what exactly Corvo is seeking vengeance for. The former bodyguard was framed for the murder of the Empress, his former employer, and he's not taking those accusations lightly.
The trailer shows off the game's grim world, in which political intrigue and the plague are major threats. Stiltwalking guards patrol the corpse-lined streets, as average citizens do their best to stay alive. It's a brutal world, but fortunately Corvo has a few tricks up his sleeves. In addition to being a natural assassin, he's also equipped with supernatural abilities to aid him in combat. He can slow time or immolate his foes, both of which prove quite handy.
