'Dishonored' commercial gets the CG treatment

Dishonored, the upcoming stealthy, steampunk-inspired game from developer Arkane Studios, is the subject of a 30-second CG commercial that debuted Sunday night during a new episode of Face Off on the SyFy channel.

In the video, a child sings "What would you do with a drunken whaler," a reference to the whaling industry that serves as the lifeblood of the game's fictional city, Dunwall. The video shows gameplay-inspired acrobatics rendered in glorious, high quality CG.

Earlier today, the developers released the second in a series of animated videos chronicling "Tales from Dunwall."

Dishonored is poised for an October 9th release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. Take an assassin's eye view of Dunwall in the commercial below.
