Bethesda have released the first gameplay trailer for Dishinored, their upcoming supernatural assassin action game developed by Arkane Studios. The video is titled “Daring Escapes’ and showcases Corvo, the game’s protagonist infiltrating the Boyle Mansion, with the City Watch on his tail, discovering three possible escape routes utilizing supernatural abilities, Blink, Bend Time, and Possession, and having three options to make his way out, by selecting The Long Jump, Sleep Tight, or Chain Possession.

Dishonored takes place in Dunwall, an industrial city where steampunk- inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows. You play as Corvo, the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress who has been murdered. Wrongly accused for the crime, you become an infamous assassin, known by the disturbing mask that has become your trademark. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is surrounded by plague and ruled by a corrupt government armed with frightening technologies, dark forces arm you with supernatural abilities – 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 in North America on October 9, in Australia on October 11 and throughout Europe on October 12, 2012 for the PC, the PS3, and the X360.
