Bethesda has announced that its new action game, Dishonored will last 12 to 14 hours. According to Bethesda, Dishonored is single-player action game only, but the style of play counts a lot. Direct players will probably get through the game in 12 or 14 hours, whereas explorers who eavesdrop a lot will take twice as long.
The game will have six powers and four passive enhancements, in addition to weapons, gadgets, and perk-granting bone charms. To use powers, players are required the use of manaa, which can be regenerated using mana potions.
After being falsely accused of the murder of the beloved Empress, you go from being your trusted bodyguard to become a fearsome murderer, known only by the mask that has become disruptive to your business card. The city is experiencing a period of uncertainty and is besieged by the plague and by an oppressive regime armed with neo- industriales technologies. In this background, dark forces conspire to give powers that no other human being could ever imagine, but… what is the price? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters that surround the city and the life they knew before is gone forever..
Dishonored is scheduled for 9 October for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
