Subscribers to Xbox Live Gold will be happy to know that Dishonored is now available to download for free. Players who missed out on the title these past two years are sure to be pleasantly surprised by this, mostly underrated, stealth game. Merging mysticism with assassination, this game marveled reviewers and players alike with its beautifully constructed environments and smooth gameplay. Here at Twinfinite we gave it a 4 out of 5, complimenting it for its gameplay and its ability to stand out from the rest of the crowd.
The game is a fun and dark adventure starring Corvo, a man who was wrongfully charged with a crime and who spends the rest of the game assassinating his way to the truth. While this could totally be the plot out of some clichéd B-movie, it is executed to near perfection by the developers over at Arkane Studios. The world, screaming of Victorian-era steampunk, also has tones of Half-Life mixed in, due in no small part to the involvement of visual designer, Viktor Antonov, whose previous works include Half-Life 2 and Half-Life 2: Lost Coast. So for those of you out there who haven’t had the chance to immerse yourselves in the world of Dishonored, and also happen to have a Xbox Live Gold subscription, be sure to grab it now before it’s gone.
