"Dishonored" is a 2012 stealth adventure video game developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. It was released worldwide in October 2012 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Set in the fictional, plague-ridden industrial city of Dunwall, Dishonored follows Corvo Attano, the Empress's legendary bodyguard. Having been framed for her murder, he is forced to become an assassin. He then seeks revenge on those who conspired against him. Corvo is aided in his quest by the Loyalist, a resistance group fighting to reclaim Dunwall, and an entity known as the Outsider. The Outsider is a powerful being that imbues Corvo with magical abilities. Several noted actors including Susan Sarandon, Brad Dourif, Carrie Fisher, Michael Madsen, Lena Headey, and Chloë Grace Moretz provided voice work for the game.
The game is played from a first-person perspective and allows the player to undertake a series of assassination missions in a variety of ways with an emphasis on player choice. Missions can be completed through stealth, combat or a combination of both. Exploring each level opens new paths and alternatives for accomplishing mission goals, and it is possible to complete all missions, eliminating all of Corvo's targets, in a non-lethal manner. The story and missions are changed in response to the player's violent actions or lack thereof. Magical abilities and equipment are designed to be combined to create new and varied effects.
Dishonored received generally positive reviews, which focused on the missions' individual narratives and the freedom available in completing them. Criticism fell on the overarching narrative—which was considered predictable, and problems in controlling the player's character. Following its release, the game won several awards including the 2012 Spike Video Game award for "Best Action-Adventure Game", the 2013 [[Wikipedia:British_Academy_Video_Games_Awards|BAFTA] award for "Best Game", and was repeatedly recognized as the best action-adventure game of 2012 and one of that year's best games overall. Following its release, Dishonored was supplemented with additional content focusing on the assassin Daud and his quest for redemption."(source Wikipedia)
