Dishonored is an upcoming steampunk first-person action adventure video game being developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks. It is scheduled to be released in October 2012 for PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.
Dishonored takes place in the industrial city of Dunwall, modeled after late 1800s-early 1900s London and Edinburgh. In the city, steampunk-inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist. Dunwall is a center for fishing and whaling, with whale oil a valuable resource necessary for powering the city. The city is stricken with a plague that is killing the poor and isolating the rich.
Susan Sarandon (Thelma and Louise, Dead Man Walking) will make her video game debut in Dishonored as Granny Rags, a former aristocrat turned intriguing old lady. She'll star alongside Brad Dourif (Lord of the Rings), who'll portray the inventor Piero - The creator of the mask that Corvo, the game's protagonist, wears. Billy Lush (Straw Dogs) play's The Outsider who is offering aid in to Corvo during his quest. He is described as a mixture of God and the Devil, who imprints his mark on Corvo, imbuing him with magical abilities.
Carrie Fisher (Star Wars) will be heard throughout the city of Dunwall, broadcasting government propaganda on a speaker system. John Slattery (Mad Men) will be Corvo sympathiser, Admiral Havelock. The amazing Michael Madsen (Reservoir Dogs) will be a mysterious assassin, named Daud. Chloë Grace Moretz (Kick Ass) will be Young Lady Emily. Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) will be Emily's caretaker, Calista. Bethesda has also announced that the Dexter composer, Daniel Licht, will do Dishonored's music.
