One (possibly) final blip from Quakecon 2012 today: if you pre-order upcoming stealth-’em-up Dishonored on Steam before August 5, you’ll net a free copy of Arkane’s 2002 effort, Arx Fatalis. Unfortunately, Dishonored is yet to be rated in Australia so Steam preorders aren’t open here; but for the rest of you, whack some cash on the table. Dishonored hits PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in October.

A small mystery: G4 has posted a gallery of Dishonored screenshots, allegedly from Quakecon, but nobody else has been so blessed. Most enigmatically, the URL on the gallery has changed twice, with the current result that the article hosts a broken link, suggesting a wee embargo might have been broken and hastily papered over. Here’s the working link, and we’ve ruthlessly mirrored them below the break in case it vanishes altogether. Higher-res versions when we have them.
