Dishonored Roundup – PAX East and Beyond

Today we’re looking at the latest highlights for Dishonored, including the first coverage for the game’s upcoming add-on, The Knife of Dunwall.

First, let’s give a hand to Arkane Studios and all our Dishonored fans. Last night at GDC’s Game Developers Choice Awards, the game took home the first-ever Audience Award!

At PAX East and across Europe, gaming journalists got their first chance to play The Knife of Dunwall, which puts you in control of Daud — the legendary assassin responsible for the murder of Empress Jessamine. In a new video up at GameTrailers (and embedded above), you’ll get your first glimpse look at gameplay.

Other must-read previews include Kotaku’s 15 Things You Should Know About Dishonored’s New DLC, Destructoid’s I like Knife of Dunwall more than Dishonored first look, and new  impressions from the stealth experts at Sneaky Bastards. Here’s a snippet of their preview:

“From our playthrough of the first mission of The Knife of Dunwall, it’s clear that no expense has been spared in offering more full-fledged missions that leverage and expand upon the design principles established by Dishonored’s unique environment design and stealth gameplay.”

ESO Roundup

Gaming press from around the globe visited ZeniMax Online Studios last week to play/learn more about The Elder Scrolls Online. Beginning this week, their impressions are making their way online.

In their second hands-on with the game, MMORPG.com has posted several new articles — including coverage of first-person controlsquestingcraftingAvA/PvP, playing as a sorcerer, and a new interview with Paul Sage.

At Destructoid, Chris Carter reports that the game’s plans for a fully-functioning first person mode looks “… extremely impressive, to the point where it looked like they were playing Oblivion and Skyrim at times.” In a separate article, Carter declares the game “a welcome hybrid of old and new school MMO mechanics” and shares the following thoughts on the game’s distinct Elder Scrolls feel:

“As the developers at Zenimax were showing off the game, you could tell that they really cared about the history of the Elder Scrolls franchise. It was clear after playing it for an extended period of time that there will be lots of lore here to uncover; perhaps more than any other Elder Scrolls game before it.”
