A new gameplay video for Dishonored – The Study in Stealth - highlights how the game’s stealth system works and shows the tools and powers at your disposal to make your way through the game unseen by enemies.
Dishonored was recently named ‘Game of the Show’, ‘360 Game of the Show’, and ‘PS3 Game of the Show’ by the Official GamesCom Awards. It will be available in North America on October 9 and throughout Europe on October 12 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
The latest gameplay video of Dishonored showcases the game’s combat system. ‘Death by Rat’, ‘Friendly Fire’ and ‘Reversal of Fortune’ are just a few ways you can creatively combine supernatural abilities with the weapons and gadgets at your disposal.
Dishonored will be available in North America on October 9, 2012 and throughout Europe on October 12, 2012, and is slated for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Check it out and let us know if you plan on picking up Dishonored when it hits store shelves.
Bethesda Softworks today revealed the all-star cast lending their voices to Dishonored.
Dishonored’s voice cast is made up of Academy Award winner, Susan Sarandon (“Thelma & Louise,” “Dead Man Walking”), Golden Globe winner, Brad Dourif (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, “One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest”), Emmy Award nominees Carrie Fisher (original “Star Wars” trilogy) and John Slattery (“Mad Men”), Michael Madsen (“Thelma & Louise,” “Reservoir Dogs,” “Kill Bill”), and Lena Headey (“300,” “Game of Thrones”).
“Having such talented actors voice Dishonored’s compelling cast of characters adds a rich, powerful element to the game,” said Raphaël Colantonio, president of Dishonored’s developer, Arkane Studios. “We want to draw people into this virtual world and make it feel real. This celebrated cast adds wonderful depth and credibility to the overall Dishonored gameplay experience.”
Dishonored is set for release in North American on October 9 and throughout Europe on October 12 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
Bethesda announced today on their blog that they are now accepting registrations for their Xbox 360 Dawnguard Beta program. All you need is to be a currently registered member on their forums and answer a few questions about your playing habits (and own a 360 with a Live account, of course). Then a promotional code allowing you to download an early beta copy of Skyrim’s Dawnguard DLC could be yours. Head over to dawnguardbeta.elderscrolls.com to try and become one of the lucky ones now.
The E3 trailer for Dishonored, a new title developed by Arkane Studios and being released by Bethesda. Arkane has a number of developers from other well-known titles, like Viktor Antonov, the art director for Half-Life 2, and Harvey Smith, the project lead for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The game’s cyber-punk setting is reminiscent of Bioshock but the basic gameplay is a first person Assassin’s Creed. Add some Half-Life 2 elements in the mix and you have one of the more intriguing titles of E3 2012.
The following trailer is full of quick scenes from the game with the prerequisite song playing over the action. Dishonored releases on October 9, 2012 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
If you do not know much about the game I recommend watching the first trailer found on the Dishonored website and be sure to visit Talking about Games often next week for more E3 2012 news.
Before DLC many games got expansion packs. Modern day DLC is typically cheaper but also significantly less substantial than the old expansion packs (the Opposing Force expansion for Half-Life was as long as the original game). Bethesda has chosen to use the term add-on to describe Dawnguard, but it’s more like an expansion pack than DLC. Which is to say it will be more like Shivering Isles than horse armor.
Dawnguard is a vampire story and makes me think of Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines, which is a good thing. Dawnguard is a timed exclusive for the Xbox 360 and will release there sometime this summer. The add-on will cost you 1600 Microsoft points or $20.
Bethesda has announced that a Doom 3 BFG Edition will be available this fall.
This edition will include Doom 3 and it’s add-on, Resurrection of Evil, which have both been completely remastered in HD and to include trophies/achievements. It will also contain hours of new content in the form of seven new levels entitled The Lost Mission.
“DOOM 3 was enthusiastically embraced by gamers worldwide at its release,” said John Carmack, Technical Director at id Software. “Today, the full experience has been enhanced and extended to be better than ever, and is delivered across all the platforms with a silky smooth frame rate and highly responsive controls. New support for 3D TVs, monitors, and head mounted displays also allows players to experience the game with more depth than ever before. We think shooter fans everywhere will love it.”
The Doom 3 BFG Edition will also include the original Doom and Doom 2 games. No price has been announced at this time. It is scheduled to be released on Xbox 360, PC and PS3, which will also be first time any Doom game has appeared on Sony’s latest home console.
It’s that time of the year once again. It’s that show where we look ahead to the Electronic Entertainment Expo and make wild predictions about what’s going to happen. Join Robbie, Kyle, Jason, Samantha and Addam as we go through each of the big three and discuss what we want to see next week. Naturally we’re excited to see more from games like Halo 4 and The Last of Us but we also get to learn more about the Wii U and hopefully there will be at least a couple of surprises to keep us interested.

Jason is always saying that all games need multiplayer and this week he got two examples to prove he’s right. Join Robert, Jason, Kyle and Addam as we discuss the new multiplayer announced for God of War Ascension and the announcement of The Elder Scrolls Online. God of War certainly looks to have an interesting take on competitive multiplayer and we debate whether it can be compelling. With The Elder Scrolls Online we talk about how an MMO won’t be the same as Skyrim multiplayer and decide whether an MMO is even what Elder Scrolls fans want.
Games are light this week but Addam and Kyle have been playing Asura’s Wrath and have plenty to say about it. While it has some problems, both agree that it’s an outrageous experience that shouldn’t be missed. We also talk about Black Ops 2 and the rumor of the $99 Xbox 360 with a 2 year contract.

It’s been rumored for a long time and today the whispers have become reality. Game Informer has revealed the cover for their upcoming June issue and along with it they have confirmed that The Elder Scrolls Online is indeed coming.
The game will be developed by Zenimax Studios Online and is set 1000 years before last year’s Skyrim. This new branch for The Elder Scrolls should hope to combine the series’ trademark massive open world with all the cooperative, competitive and social aspects that come with an MMO.
“It will be extremely rewarding finally to unveil what we have been developing the last several years,” said game director and MMO veteran Matt Firor, whose previous work includes Mythic’s well-received Dark Age of Camelot. “The entire team is committed to creating the best MMO ever made – and one that is worthy of The Elder Scrolls franchise.”
Certainly there will be a lot more to learn about The Elder Scrolls Online when the June issue of Game Informer releases. There is also a trailer promised for tomorrow. The Elder Scrolls Online is scheduled for released in 2013 for PC and Mac.
