Dishonored is a 1st person action game where you play the role of a supernatural assassin. You play Corvo Attano who is the bodyguard of the Empress, the royal protector, and he is at the beginning of the game falsely accused of her murder. There are many ways to play the game, this is one of the premises of the game. The player has a set of tools, an environment which is open and with various ways to get inside the buildings and the simulation allows the player to explore and experiment with the mechanics and it is up to the player to play their own way and it's up to the system to resolve the player's intention.

The player is highly mobile. It's not only sprint and slide and climb and lean, things like that as you would expect in a first person action game with a stealth component, there are also supernatural powers like Blink for example, which is a short range teleport.

Many ways to play[edit]

There are multiple ways to complete each mission. The player can be as stealth and non-lethal as possible, or kill everyone.


Dishonored takes place in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city in the grip of a terrible plague.

Dunwall, located on the Isle of Gristol, is the capital of the Empire of Isles, a collective of four nation-states, tightly grouped in an otherwise hostile ocean. In the years leading up to the plague, a new process was discovered for making whale oil more volatile, powering a series of astounding technological inventions. Despite Dunwall’s technological prowess, the city’s elite have been unable to stem the epidemic that has plunged the once-great capital into chaos. Crime and gang activity are at an all time high, and the City Watch – armed with militarized security technology – have cracked down hard on the populace. Food, whale oil and elixirs designed to fight the plague have been strictly rationed. The situation is dire. This city is where you live… You, Corvo Attano, Royal Protector to Empress Jessamine Kaldwin.

Weeks ago, your Empress dispatched you to seek aid from Gristol’s neighboring nations. Leaving the city of Dunwall, you traveled to the other Isles – Morley, Tyvia and Serkonos. Now you return to her with dreadful news…

"The family silver mines haven't been producing as much, it's true. My brother Morgan and I have given it our all as they say, but apparently the quality of labor has greatly fallen since our father's time." --Lord Custis Pendleton, House of Parliament
