And they'll all be right. Arkane's first effort under the ownership of publisher Bethesda is one of the most exciting IPs I've had the pleasure of entering in to, and the more of its amazing world I understand, the more I hope that it proves an amazing success so we'll see more. From a videogame perspective, it's the perfect antithesis to almost every other first-person game on the market, or about to come into the market. If you like single-player games, player-choice, stealth and incredible narrative, this is one not to be missed.

Every time I've aksed I've been met with a "we're just focusing on the game right now" type of response, but my question may have been answered, in short, by today's new "Tales From Dunwall - Part 1" Dishonored video.
While short, the video's purpose is to begin fleshing out, at least from a background perspective, the game-world we'll all be trouncing through in two weeks time, and it's as stylish as all get-up. (In fact, I'm as excited about seeing more of these as I am about playing the Game.)
