Dishonored is due out in a couple weeks. We've already seen plenty of trailers and snippets of gameplay. Now, Bethesda has released a series of animated shorts that provide some backstory for the game. This three-part series trickled out over the last few days, and you can watch all the episodes below.
The Tales from Dunwall nicely sets the stage for what I hope is a compelling narrative. Given the environment's obvious dickensian influences, it just wouldn't do for the story to fall flat.
So, I guess I have two weeks to polish off Borderlands 2. Dishonored will be released on October 9 in North America and a few days later in the rest of the world. The Unreal Engine 3-based title is coming to consoles in addition to the PC, and it's available for pre-order on Steam.
