Dishonored, released October 2012, is a first-person stealth action adventure video game developed by Arkane Studios. Dishonored was released for Windows, Xbox 360 and PS3.
Corvo Attano, body guard for the late Empress, was framed for her murder and the kidnapping of her daughter and next to the heir Emily. After escaping prison with the help of the Loyalists, Corvo becomes an assassin, empowered with magical abilities. With only one goal in finding Emily and establishing her back on the throne, Corvo encounters numerous challenges eliminating those who were responsible for the murder.
Set in the early 1900's in the fictional city of Dunwall (modeled on London), Corvo is imprisoned by the corrupt rulers of the city, who are also responsible for the assassination of the Empress. Dunwall is overcome with the rat plague, a progressing sickness inflicted onto the poorer people of Dunwall. The victims of the disease cry blood, turning into "Weepers" as they're gradually claimed by death. The rich and the ruling class are protected by the watch guard and walls of light that turn people to ashes they attempt to travel districts. However, this is all set to change, as a group of Loyalists plot to change the course of the city and put the rightful heir back on the throne once more.
