Stealth Answers from Arkane Studios, Pt. 4

Co-creators Raphael Colantonio and Harvey Smith return to answer more of your Dishonored questions.

Q: Are there ways to distract enemies or lure them? (Anthony T.)

A: Enemies respond to sound, so firing a crossbow bolt into the wall or throwing a bottle will cause an enemy to come investigate.

Q: How will climbing/parkour work in the game? (Angela E.)

A: We’re not a parkour game (in the sense of wall running) so much as a supernatural jump/blink-teleport/climb up game. We do also have lean and slide, which feel good and support stealth. Our climb is more like a pull up, allowing you to grab ledges or the top of small structures. Vertical space and exploration are important in the game, for sure.

Q: Will Corvo’s opponents have supernatural abilities? (Carcharoth)

A: A few. The Outsider shows up to people who are potentially pivotal in some way, marking them and granting access to supernatural powers. Each person marked has access to different powers.

Q: Are Corvo’s powers available 100% at the beginning? If not, how are they made available? (Carcharoth)

A: Not at the start; developments through the game make the supernatural powers available. And the way they work is through a Rune economy. During gameplay, you’ll search for runes that allow you to obtain or upgrade powers.

Q: How many discs will Dishonored be on Xbox 360? (Luis A.)

A: Dishonored’s content fits on one Xbox 360 DVD.

  1. Using the Pendleton brothers as an example, can you posses Morgan Pendleton, have him kill Custis, and let him take the blame for it?

  2. Wow, awesome weblog layout! How long have you ever been blogging for? you make blogging glance easy. The whole look of your website is wonderful, let alone the content material!

  3. Slackjaw, so he can destroy there life? It’s really cool how you put that for the players who don’t want to kill. Honestly I would rather kill them XD . But will this change your ending? Like if you use slackjaw you will get one ending, And if you make it look like an accident thats another ending. How you kill them will that change the ending alot?

  4. Can we possess someone and go berserk then exit his body and the possesed will be blamed for our actions.Ex:like possessing a guard and killing our target and then exit his body and hide,and watch him being killid by his fellow guards?
