You already saw the trailer, but now Bethesda has just announced an October 9, 2012 release date for the Arkane Studios’ developed game — Dishonored.
Not only that, but they’ve also released the game’s official box-art, which you can see below.
Here’s the official press release on the game’s premise.
Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where steampunk- inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows. You are Corvo, the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress who has been murdered. Framed for the crime, you become an infamous assassin, known by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is besieged by plague and ruled by a corrupt government armed with frightening technologies, dark forces bestow supernatural abilities upon you – but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever
Dishonored will be available for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
