has the cover reveal for the August print issue of Game Informer magazine, which will take the wraps off Dishonored
, a first-person stealthy action/adventure game in development at Arkane Studios. The game will feature the creative efforts of Harvey Smith (System Shock
, Deus Ex
) and Viktor Antonov (Half-Life 2
). More details will come when the magazine hits the streets, and in the meantime, here's what they have to say about Dishonored:
We've seen the game running, and now we share Colantonio and Smith's vision too. Dishonored is the antithesis of a edge-of-your-seat roller-coaster ride. It's a game about assassination where you don't have to kill anyone. It's a game about infiltration where you can set up traps and slaughter the entire garrison of an aristocrat's mansion rather than sneak in. It's a game about brutal violence where you can slip in and out of a fortified barracks with nobody ever knowing you were there. It's a game about morality and player choice where the world you create is based on your actions, not navigating conversation trees.
