Choose your own Dishonored adventure

We have, perhaps, posted too many Dishonored trailers in the past few months. This should be the last one, if only because the game comes out on Tuesday. To whet your appetite, publisher Bethesda has posted a “Path to Revenge” trailer with an interactive twist. The video takes you through parts of one of the game’s missions, and it allows you to choose your own adventure at various points. Check it out:

The multiple-choice trailer does a good job of illustrating the various approaches players can use in the game. Looks like there are more than just a couple of ways to achieve a mission’s objective. After trying a few of them, I’m not sure which I enjoy more: stealthy assasinations or more brazen attacks. The fact that both options exist should keep the gameplay varied and interesting.

Folks who order Dishonored on Steam before its release will get a couple of free Team Fortress 2 items in addition to a copy of Arx Fatalis, the first game from developer Arkane Studios. PC users are apparently getting higher-quality textures than the console crowd, too. This interview at Games on Net reveals that Arkane made high-res textures for the PC and then scaled those down for the Xbox and PlayStation. The PC version is a bigger download as a result, but you can apparently start pre-loading it on Steam right now. Thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the tip.

    For anyone who gets Arx Fatalis (either by preordering or buying it separately), be sure to check out [url=http://arx-libertatis.org/<]Arx Libertatis[/url<], a port to make it playable on modern systems and OSX and Linux. You will need the original game files to play. Great spellcasting system, but the worst user interface I have ever come across in a FPRPG. Voice acting ain't too hot either, but it was a pretty fun game, though I admit to never finishing it.

    Hearing that music I so wish they would create a new Timeshift game but longer, better story and a lot of paradoxes and interesting time-travels. And better timepowers so you could take on a small army, pherhaps. Othervice the original had good physics and stopping time while it rained was amazing, amazing.

    While the atmosphere is new and unique and it seems like it’ll be worth playing, what a lackluster trailer. This trailer highlights the fact that you have choice? How is that different from most other games that have more then one weapon in them? I mean you could do the same thing for Bioshock or Borderlands 2 and you have infinitely more ‘choices’… or Crysis 2… or Battlefield 3… or Tribes Ascend (definitely this one).

    Edit: This trailer does have a lot of little trailers stitched together and it’s unique in that fashion, but what it shows off isn’t so much.

    I am really excited for this game… butttttttttt I am going to be stuck playing XCOM for at least a week before I can even think about playing this. Typical that there’s finally two games worth playing after the horror wait between Mass Effect 3 and then finally and these two gems. (Sleeping Dogs and Borderlands 2 do not count).

    Also… this is the busiest time for me this year at work as I will be at 3 different cities in 1 month crossing 3 different countries and have my own performance review… so probably better that I just play XCOM until I get some leave prior to christmas.

          I don’t get it. But it sounds very funny so I laughed anyway.

            Truly.

    I will probably get around to playing this eventually but I’m a little bogged down with titles at the moment.

    Once the Diablo3 honeymoon wore off I grabbed Max Payne 3, then there was a brief pause filled with the very enjoyable Orce Must Die 2 before Sleeping Dogs and Borderlands 2 and Torchlight 2 came out all in the same month.

    I no longer play WoW, and I’ve avoided the lure of Guild Wars 2 [i<]and[/i<] The Old Republic so I theoretically have more gaming time than most people. There are just [i<]too many[/i<] games to play them all, and I'm eagerly anticipating Planetside 2 as well!

    This game has been hyped *SOO* much I can’t help but feel there is a chance it will actually suck bum in actuality.

      • cjava2

      Played it at QuakeCon. Sucked.

      Edit: Maybe because all the booths were running on Xbox 360s and I had to use a controller to play this instead of KB+Mouse. Ugh.

    Feels like Thief to a large degree. And I mean that as a profound compliment. I hope they can pull it off.

    “the game’s missions, and it allows you to choose your own adventure at various points”

    Isn’t that like Fable?

    I’ve always wondered why, in the past, developers didn’t make the game first with high textures/graphics and scale it down for consoles, rather than the typical practice of releasing console graphics, then adding a high definition texture pack. Seems like extra work.

    Needless, good to see that developers are starting to see the PC as what it is, a high end gaming machine worthy of the quality graphics.

      I’m sure high-rez textures typically come from the original art but for some reason they sometimes don’t bother to provide the PC version with anything different than what the old consoles get. Perhaps it’s out of simplicity in keeping all of the releases as similar as possible.
