In the past few weeks, members of Arkane have traveled to New York, LA, and across Europe to show off new areas in Dishonored. The above image comes from their stop in London, where (from left) Viktor Antonov, Sebastien Mitton, Harvey Smith, Raphael Colantonio, and Dinga Bakaba) enjoyed relaxing in a room you might recognize from the 2011 Best Picture Winner, The King’s Speech.
While the Arkane crew works away in Lyon, France and Austin, TX, coverage from their tour has started appearing today.
#7 In this game, there are lots of ways to do the same thing. Take the Bathhouse building I saw during the demo. It’s where the action was going to be. And while we could possess a fish to go inside, there were supposedly seven other ways to get in there, too.
On Machinima, watch a 7-minute interview with the game’s co-creative directors, Raphael Colantonio and Harvey Smith. That and more after the break.
Gaming press from around the globe recently visited Arkane Studios’ Lyon office for a new look at Dishonored.

GameReactor — “We know we’ve only seen a small chunk thus far, but, racing aside, the separate gameplay factors alone are enough to excite, and together form a stunning FPS that we hope lives up to our renewed expectations.”
In the past couple weeks, we’ve kept everyone up to speed on where you can see preview coverage for Prey 2.
In the process, we’ve seen some comments focusing on what’s not in Prey 2. Between now and the game’s release next year, we’ll be sharing plenty of details on what’s in the game. For starters, we encourage you to read previews in OXM, PlayStation The Official Magazine, and other publications worldwide. And in the coming weeks, you can expect more previews, interviews, etc. online. Once that’s all out there, you’ll know more about what (and who) is in the game, and how it all relates to the original game.
We think you’ll be pretty excited about what Human Head has in store. Until then, we thought we’d share this screenshot and concept piece. Enjoy!
Above we’ve embedded the GameTrailers episode filmed at id’s offices.In it, Geoff Keighley catches up with Tim Willits and Matt Hooper and features exclusive gameplay at the beginning of the show (about 5o seconds in), as well as at the 6:15 and 11:00 marks. Additionally, at the 16:00 mark, you can get a first look at the look of RAGE’s comic book series that’s in the works from Dark Horse Comics.
Moving to PAX East coverage, be sure to check out the following impressions following our weekend presentations in Boston…
Brink made a huge splash (pun intended) at recent stops in LA, NY, and parts of Europe. We already covered off on some coverage last week (as has Splash Damage on their site), but there’s plenty more to share. To get started, watch the GameTrailers video (above) with the game’s creative director, Richard Ham.
Elsewhere, Lee Bradley of Play.tm recently played the game, and it sounds like Splash Damage’s goals for the game spoke directly to him. Here’s a snippet of his preview:
“Because the truth is, an FPS hasn’t had me that intrigued for a long time. Perhaps it’s timing, perhaps its design or maybe it’s just the infectious energy of the development team. They know they’re onto something good. Brink could be very special indeed.”
We’ve only scratched the surface on the new coverage. After the break, find out why Destructoid claims the game “truly looks to have something for everyone” and more.
This weekend we’ve got exciting new preview coverage for the upcoming iPhone release of RAGE. IGN’s Levi Buchanan has the scoop, and above you can check out their exclusive video footage on the game.
And as previewed in last week’s episode of The Jace Hall Show, Jace recently had to a chance to check out RAGE on iPhone with id Software’s Matt Hooper and Jason Kim. The fun starts about 3o seconds into the show. Also on the show, you can see more of Jace going ballistic on Veronica (played by Felicia Day) in New Vegas.
We’re six days away from the release of Fallout: New Vegas, so here’s a look at some of the final previews, features, and interviews you’ll see before you have a chance to play the game for yourself.
At Gamespot, there’s a new feature revealing some of the new Perks for New Vegas — including comments from the team at Obsidian. Above, you’ll see the awesome image for the Cowboy Perk — not to be confused with the Commando Perk. Come on Bennett, let’s party!
Meanwhile, tomorrow at Best Buy’s video site, Live @ Best Buy, they’ll be doing a livestream of New Vegas from an LA Best Buy — where project director JE Sawyer will be playing the game and answering your questions. If you’d like to submit a questions, sign up for our forums and post here.
What’s the expected playtime of New Vegas – with and without sidequests?
I generally only give my own experiences as a reference point since I don’t want people to be disappointed by a generic game length number. On my last playthrough I spent seventy hours doing the main quest and a large number (maybe thirty five) of the side quests. It’s a big game.
“Some of it’s down to the SMART system, which in Splash Damage language means “Smooth Movement Across Random Terrain” and in English means “A sprint button that also causes your character to go hurtling up and over things automatically”. You’ll jump small gaps, vault fences, and go mantling up onto high ledges. Most importantly, tapping crouch while sprinting like this drops your character into a long slide, which is actually both evasive and aggressive. You can shoot during it (with much-reduced accuracy), and sliding into another player knocks them over.”

After last weekend’s Eurogamer Expo in London, there’s a ton of new coverage on Hunted, RAGE, Fallout: New Vegas, and Brink. With this roundup, we’ll cover the event’s home team, Splash Damage, and all the latest details on Brink.
We actually begin with news not from the Eurogamer Expo, but from the Penny Arcade Expo. Last week, GameTrailers put up a new walkthrough video they captured while in Seattle. Check out new footage from Container City above — featuring play-by-play commentary from Creative Director Richard Ham (and gameplay awesomeness from Media Director Richard Jolly).
