Dishonored is a very exciting prospect. As Dave explained (opens in new tab) when the game was first announced, it’s a free-form, first-person assassination sim set in a delicious Steampunk world, and its being developed by a dream-team comprising staff who’ve worked on the likes of Deus Ex, Thief, Half-Life 2 and Dark Messiah. If you haven’t been paying attention to it thus far, you really should start doing so right now. It’s a good time to, you see, as the first trailer has just landed. Click on it below.

Says Bethesda: “Dishonored is an immersive first-person action game that casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. Creatively eliminate your targets with the flexible combat system as you combine the numerous supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make. Dishonored is set for release on the Xbox 360®, PlayStation®3 and PC in 2012”
