Feng Shui Dah!

This is the coolest wall decoration since Boba Fett sold Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt.

After being used for E3, PAX, and the Skyrim launch party, our 25′ x 8.5′ recreation of Alduin’s wall has made its way into the Bethesda Game Studios’ lounge. And in honor of its creator, the late Adam Adamowicz, we’ve added a plaque in his memory.

Watch the debut trailer for Dishonored

Watch the all-new debut trailer for Dishonored, our upcoming 2012 release from Arkane Studios.

Dishonored casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is being besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government armed with strange technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man.

In Dishonored, creatively eliminate your targets with the flexible combat system as you combine the numerous supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.
