Once past the guards, Corvo peeks in on a private conversation between
his target and a senior guard. He evidentially doesn't like what he sees
and hears, because he sees fit to use his newfound magical powers to
shatter the front door in a trillion pieces, announcing his arrival. The
chase is officially on!
The cowardly aristocrat hides behind his guards, but they're no match
for Corvo's lethal combination of physic powers and expert combat
skills. The guards open fire but with a click of his fingers, Corvo
freezes time, leaving the bullets dangling impotently in mid-air. He
steps out of harms way, fires a series of strange looking bullets at his
adversaries' throats, and then turns the time tap back on again.
Choking noises are all the applause Corvo needs to hear.
"Killing me won't solve anything", cries our target. Less than a second
later, Corvo slits his throat with an enormous sword. Hey, it didn't unsolve anything, right?
Proving that he's not all about stealth, Corvo makes
good his escape in about the least stealthy way imaginable - by crashing
through a giant window pane and following that up by thundershocking a
couple of patrolling Tall Boys. He may as well have let off a few
streamers too while he was at it.
And with that, the scene fades to black. It's one of the best trailers
we've seen in a long, long while, and it earmarks Dishonored as being
one of the most ambitious freeform games of this generation. Let us know
your thoughts on the trailer in the comments section below.
