This DLC comes out on December 11th, this coming Tuesday, and will cost you $4.99 on PC and PS3, and 400 MS Points on Xbox 360.

Also, I just got a nice Holiday card in the mail from our friends at Bethesda, so I wanted to take the time to say thanks for that!  Here’s what they sent – it’s a very stealthy Christmas, apparently:


Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials Comes December 11th

Posted on November 27, 2012 by Jesse Lord

Ready for a return trip through the city of Dunwall?  Hope so, as Bethesda have just announced the release date for Dunwall City Trials, the first DLC package to be released for the stealth assassination game Dishonored, which we had a great time reviewing earlier this year (seriously, it’s a great game – get it if you haven’t yet!).  Dunwall City Trials is not a storyline expansion, but rather a series of challenge maps.  Straight from Bethesda’s press release:

Dunwall City Trials will include 10 challenge maps that will test and track your combat, stealth and mobility skills. Creatively combine your supernatural abilities, weapons and gadgets to eliminate as many targets as possible, fight off waves of tallboys, guards, weepers and thugs, or take out targets in a non-stop run of drop assassinations. Dunwall City Trials also features a new set of achievements and trophies as well as a global online leaderboard.

The expansion pack is going to be released for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, and will cost 400 Microsoft points or $4.99 for PC/PS3.  Will you be picking this up?  Let us know!


Dunwall City Trials DLC Announced For Dishonored

Posted on October 26, 2012 by Joshua Rust

The first of three planned DLC for the well received Dishonored is titled ‘Dunwall City Trials’. The Dunwall City Trials has been give a tentative release date of December with no exact date to pin it down to and will be priced at 400 MSP (or $4.99).

The Dunwall City Trials will offer: “ten distinct trials await challengers,” says the blurb, “including an arena battle against waves of enemy AI, a gravity-defying run of drop assassinations, and a race against the clock. ”

“Dunwall City Trials also features a whole new set of achievements and trophies as well as a global online leaderboard that will establish the greatest assassins for each challenge.”

In addition to the Dunwall City Trails DLC, the other two DLC will be story-driven and released sometime in 2013.  The second DLC will put you in the shoes of Daud, the leader of a group of supernatural assassins.

“Make your way through new Dunwall locales and discover Daud’s own set of weapons, powers and gadgets in this story-driven campaign. How you play and the choices you make will impact the final outcome…”

Story-driven content? Heck yes please! If you haven’t picked up Dishonored yet and are still hanging on the fence about it, check out our review here. I’m really enjoying it a lot, it’s one of the best new IP’s to come out this generation.


Dishonored | Review

Posted on October 8, 2012 by Jesse Lord

What would you do with a drunken whaler,
What would you do with a drunken whaler,
What would you do with a drunken whaler,
Early in the morning?

High towers rise up, overlooking long-neglected ruins.  Plague runs rampant throughout many of the city’s districts.  Houses and apartments are fitted with reinforced blast doors, the sign of another family lost to the powerful and fatal disease.  Train cars trundle about down the narrow streets, brimming with canvas-wrapped bodies.  Corrupt and power-drunk city watchmen prowl the streets, looking for any opportunity to inflict pain and suffering on the survivors.  Huge whaling ships float by in the harbors, off to search for more of their bounty and it’s life-and-power-giving properties.

Welcome to Dunwall.

Third and Final Tales from Dunwall Video

Posted on September 27, 2012 by Jesse Lord

We have our third and final installment of the Tales from Dunwall video series, straight from Bethesda, to give us a bigger picture of the universe created for Dishonored.  This last one is titled “The Mind of Madness” and really sets the stage nicely.  October 9th, where are you?!  No more words from me – straight to the video:

See the Back-Story of Dishonored’s Dunwall

Posted on September 25, 2012 by Jesse Lord

For those of us who can’t get enough Dishonored information (guilty!), I am pleased to present to you all the following video.  The first in the three-part “Tales from Dunwall” video series, The Awakening is set to give a further glimpse into the world that has been created to contain the storyline of the supernatural assassin.  A whaling town teeming with Plague, Dunwall is a city of intrigue, oppression and deception.

From the email I received, I discovered that the video was created by Psyop.  Each episode was predominantly produced by hand, which I think is fantastic, and it shows. Each frame was a fully rendered style frame, which was then enhanced with 3D elements to add to the painterly atmosphere, dimension and depth of each shot.  But enough about the details – let’s get right to the video!
