It’s hard to believe this week marks the one year anniversary of Dishonored’s release. it’s been rewarding to see so many people people “get” the game Arkane set out to develop. It’s wonderful and very humbling to see the game win numerous Game of the Year accolades (and be able to release a “Game of the Year Edition”), but there’s even more satisfaction in hearing fans embracing the fiction and emergent gameplay.
When Arkane was making the final push on finishing the game, their building excitement to see the game in the wild was palpable – like children on Christmas Eve. Visions of YouTube speedruns danced in their heads. They weren’t disappointed. Launch day and the months that followed provided endless entertainment – seeing the variety of ways players took on the role of Corvo – non-lethal playthroughs, absolutely brutal and literally unthinkable killer moves, and everything in between. Amazing cosplay, fan-fiction, and fan art embracing provided icing on the cake. You guys really like The Outsider.
What’s that? You haven’t played Dishonored yet? You missed all the DLC? Well, this week you can fix that and pick up the newly available Game of the Year Edition – available in stores and digitally on PlayStation Store. In addition to the award-winning original release, you’ll also receive:
