Bethesda Softworks confirms that Arkane Studios' action/stealth game Dishonored will be coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC platforms -- specifically, Games for Windows -- in North America on October 9, 2012. A European release will follow on October 12.
Dishonored puts players in the shoes of Corvo, a disgraced bodyguard who ends up on the run after he's framed for the murder of the empress he was charged with protecting. Corvo sets out to clear his name in the city in the fictional city of Dunwall, which feels like a steampunk reinterpretation of Victorian London. Early previews peg the game as a blend of Thief: Deadly Shadows and BioShock, but we should get a better sense of it once the media gets its first hands-on at E3 2012.
