Watch the newly-released gameplay trailer for Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials, arriving on Xbox LIVE, PSN, and Steam next week!
Dunwall City Trials will include 10 challenge maps that will test and track your combat, stealth and mobility skills. Creatively combine your supernatural abilities, weapons and gadgets to eliminate as many targets as possible, fight off waves of tallboys, guards, weepers and thugs, or take out targets in a non-stop run of drop assassinations. Dunwall City Trialsalso features a new set of achievements and trophies as well as a global online leaderboard.
Accompanying the trailer is Dan Bull’s “Dishonored Rap” track. You can listen to the full track on his YouTube Channel.
Just as Dishonored presents a variety of gameplay options, we’re seeing an eclectic mix of community creations. Spotted at deviantART, juhoham’s Shadow Over Dunwall tribute to Corvo (above) and Ormeli’s spot on cosplay of Empress Jessamine have become favorites at the office.
Just two weeks from today (December 11th), Dishonored’s first add-on, Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials, will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC for $4.99/£3.99 /€4.99 (or 400 Microsoft Points).

We can also announce that Francesco Certo is the big winner of the contest. Congrats Francesco!
You’ll notice that the trailer is scored with the winner’s track from the Drunken Whaler remix contest. Check out our Q&A with Chilton (Eddy Charlton) below:
Did any particular artists inspire your remix?
I heard ‘Alice’ by Pogo about 3 years ago and was blown away by the sounds he made just by chopping up samples. That was the song that made me start producing, and I’ve been chopping up vocals ever since.
Today on Raptr.com, Dishonored’s co-creative directors, Harvey Smith and Raphael Colantonio, will be answering questions your questions about Dishonored.
The top question (as determined by Raptr’s staff) will win a Dishonored prize pack, featuring a team-signed Boyle Party mask, a signed copy of the game, and an Astro A40 Audio System with Dishonored speaker tags – just like what we had at our PAX Prime Party. Additionally, the next five best questions will score a team-signed Boyle Party mask. Good luck!
