You have no idea how crazy it makes me to spell dishonored without a U. Repeatedly when doing searches I will spell the word right then realise I’ve not spelled it the American way. These are the things that make me crazy. Well one of them anyhow. Still, seeing yet another game with a female lead made me all kinds of happy. Sure you can play as Corvo, but I’m happy that we get to have the choice and Emily and Corvo have different abilities so there is a real decision to be made.
I’ve watched the video a few times now and I’m very intrigued by that smoke ability Emily seems to have. This is going to make sneaking and surprise attacks a thing of joy Not to mention the possibilities of run the fuck away quickly. We don’t see much gameplay, but we do get to see some beautiful design on show. The art direction was rather stylised previously and from this small clip it looks like they’ve taken it one step further and I really like what I see.
Next year is going to be full of some very awesome games.
