Dishonored developer Arkane has lifted the lid on the game’s stealth mechanics, and has explained why it moved away from the shadow stealth system seen in Thief.

Dishonored has received a free iOS game available from today. Rat Assassin sees you slaughtering diseased vermin on the streets of Dunwall.

Dishonored allows something of a sandbox approach to missions, which Arkane’s Harvey Smith believes is something gamers yearn for even if they missed out on the 1990′s games which inspired it.

Dishonored developer Arkane Studios famously loves PC gaming, but they’ve catered to the every-man rather than the PC Elite with Dishonored’s system requirements.

Dishonored’s masked hero Corvo comes packing a ton of special powers and equipment. In a game where stealth and caution are rewarded, you may thing that these skills make guards easy to kill or bypass.
Think again, says Arkane.

Dishonored gets a new batch of screens today, courtesy of Bethesda and developer Arkane, showing off a mysterious lady in a rather unnerving red mask, Corvo’s x-ray vision and more of that steam punk architecture.

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.

Viktor Antonov, the much-lauded designer behind Half-Life 2′s City 17, jumped ship when Valve grew too large and stopped making the kinds of games he’s keen on.

Arkane Studios’ Harvey Smith just isn’t interested in making heavily scripted thrill-a-minute shooters, preferring to distance the first-person action of Dishonored from the FPS genre.

Although Arkane Studios has its share of passionate console gamers, its heart lies with the PC – which is why the PC release of Dishonored has its own user interface rather than sharing one with the control-pad friendly console versions.

Arkane Studios estimates skilled players will be able to trot briskly through the entirety of Dishonored’s core campaign in as little as 12 hours.

Arkane Studios has won my heart forever by admitting that the team quite likes it when players find ways to break the game.

Dishonored is top of my personal list for 2012 because no other game lets you send a swarm of rats to mess with people.

Unless the fact that Dishonored is awesome is news to you, you probably won’t learn much from the E3 trailer for Arkane Studios’ steampunk effort. Still worth it.

Is Tumblr too cool for an official marketing blog? Nope! Dishonored fits right in; it turned up with an animated gif.

Those keen on Arkane’s upcoming first person RPG Dishonored may want to check out this strange new teaser site.

Bethesda’s announced it’ll release Dishonored on October 9 in the US and October 12 in the UK.

Bethesda has sent over a handful of new screenshots for Arkane’s Dishonored, showing off the tallboys, some lucious environments, and denizens of seemingly ill repute, if you know what I mean.
