New Dishonored Screenshot
Dishonored by Bethesda is starting to sound like one of the upcoming behemoths, next to Bioshock: Infinite. The concept of the game is interesting, especially since it is a completely different direction from the other games Bethesda has recently produced (huge sandbox style) but maybe Dishonored will hold true to that pattern. As I keep an eye on the new content that is coming out for this game, I can’t help think of two different things: Bioshock, and steampunk. Steampunk is a ‘hell yeah’ in my book, but the game as far as the lighting and the style looks a lot more like Bioshock than a typical Bethesda game. One theory for this is that Bethesda typically designs game with huge outdoor gameplay. Think Skyrim, Morrowind, RAGE and the list goes on. I am excited to see this game as it develops, I just hope it doesn’t end up being a remake of a different game. Bethesda in the past has proved they are great at coming up with something unique and exciting, so lets hope that Dishonored is something different and not another RAGE in the steampunk dark ages.
