New screens of Dishonored

New screens of Dishonored

Bethesda shares new screenshots for Arkane Studios' Dishonored. Set in Dunwall (a world envisioned by Viktor Antonov), players will be casted as a supernatural assassin who seeks revenge. The game reacting on your action, players will be able to use different style, whether using supernatural abilities (teleport, possess any living creature or stop time) or improvising with other game elements (use shadow and sound, gadgets, verticality). The game will be released later this year.

Not a chance. It actually has surface shaders (directionally lit normal maps) running on the environments, which the Source engine has never supported in any meaningful way. Far more geometry and better lighting than Source can handle too.

Someone go fix the wikipedia page. It's a custom Unreal Engine.

I actually just did that. It previously said source, the FAQ on their site says otherwise. It doesn't say what version of UE they're using. It's exactly that vague.

It reminds me of a mix of Half Life and Bioshock :]

It's because Viktor Antonov worked on HL2.

From hl-wikia
Antonov was art director and conceptual artist for Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Lost Coast. For Half-Life 2, he designed most of the City 17 style and the Combine architecture and technology.

Perhaps the previous UE itineration, just like 2K with the original Bioshock? The character models aren't exactly on steroids, so that's usually how I distinguish the two of them. ;)

Commented on 2012-03-19 23:03:06

The style, architechture and art direction look great. While the tech might not be up there with the best, the way everything is designed more than makes up for it. Knowing the teams behind the games, this and Bioshock infinite are at the top of my waitinglist.

Wow beautiful art. Never heard of this game before.

Sounds like a mix of Thief and Deus Ex, damn good stuff sir!

    GriftGFX I'm surprised that performance still matters to you now that the X1X is around lol (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX And I'd say that most "normal people" would find that performance at this spec beyond acceptable. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Translation: If DOOM is already running well on hybrid portable (in portable mode) what chance does their next game have of performing even better? I'd say those chances are pretty good, actually. (4 Hours ago)
