Bethesda and Arkane have just recently released ‘The Awakening’, the first episode in a three-part web series. These webisodes called ‘The Tales From Dunwall’ are prequels that will give a little background on Dishonored’s dystopian world of Dunwall.

“Created by Psyop, each episode was predominantly produced by hand. Each frame was a fully rendered style frame, which was then enhanced with 3D elements to add to the painterly atmosphere, dimension and depth of each shot.”

In Dishonored, you play the role of a supernatural assassin hellbent on revenge. Multiple supernatural abilities, gadgets, and weapons will all be at your disposal through your quest.

Dishonored will launch October 9th in North America and October 12th in Europe; on Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
