Dishonored launch trailer summarizes a tale of revenge

Dishonored was released in North America today, and publisher Bethesda Softworks put out a trailer to celebrate the occasion.

The launch trailer lays out the narrative: after being framed for murdering the Empress and kidnapping her daughter, protagonist Corvo Attano sets out to clear his name and avenge the Empress. The video also shows off the wide variety of ways in which Corvo goes about his quest, like stabbing people in the neck and using supernatural powers conferred by The Outsider. "Revenge solves everything," the trailer claims.

Dishonored is available on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Read our full review here.
