Dishonored Contest: Show Us Your Killer Moves

We’ve already seen some amazing displays of Dishonored skill on YouTube. Now we want to see what you can really do — and we’re putting up a cool prize.

Starting today, we’re looking for the most creative power combos, the craziest kill moves and the sneakiest feats of stealth on YouTube. To enter the contest, simply upload a direct capture Dishonored video clip to YouTube — under 60 seconds and at 720p quality — by 11:59pm EST on October 31.

There are two ways to submit your entry:

1. Email us a link to your video at “bethblog@bethsoft.com” with subject line “Dishonored Killer Moves”

2. Tweet a link to your video with hashtag “#DishonoredKillerMoves”

If we like your clip, we’ll request your high-quality raw video file from you, so hold on to that. We’ll then include your footage in a compilation video and credit you appropriately, while the player with the most impressive clip will win a framed Dishonored painting (pictured here). Preference will be given to clips with music disabled, and direct capture is a must.

For all of the details and rules, click through. Good luck!

  1. Hey I have better suggestion….why don’t you show us new trailer for the next Skyrim dlc instead……we are eagearly waiting come on xD

  2. Don’t do it everybody. Bethesda had a remix contest for “Drunken Whaler” almost a month ago and still hasn’t followed through with any results, prizes, or info on the winners. What’s the deal?

  3. What ever happened to the Remix Contest? No results were ever posted. I haven’t seen any mention of it. Seems like you just swept it under the rug. Were the submissions that horrible? Even so, you should give some sort of explanation.
