You can tell it’s the week before E3. Teaser trailers for upcoming AAA releases are beginning to sprout like pretty flowers from the fertile soil of development.

If the awesome/terrifying Kill Bill/Charlie’s Angels stylings of the new Hitman: Absolution wasn’t enough, a brand-new trailer for Zenimax and Arkane’s blood-soaked action game Dishonored has emerged from the shadows…...

From the creepy choral sea shanty (reminiscent perhaps of the original meaning of ‘Ring a ring o’ roses, the nursery rhyme widely believed to be about the plague) to the series of blood-spattered bodies being lowered lifeless to the ground, seen through the protagonist’s eyes, this trailer screams visceral spookiness.

A pack of rats can be seen running through the streets and assaulting guards, and some dock-workers throw piles of bodies into the water. Couple this with the theme music and I think it’s fair to guess that the game is going to take place in a city ravaged by some kind of disease.

There are some clever lighting effects, some impressive interiors and exteriors and lots and lots of blood. In terms of new abilities for your character, there’s perhaps not a lot we haven’t seen in the previous trailer – the environment is the star in this new clip.  

Are you more excited for Dishonored after seeing this clip? Have you spotted anything in it that we might have missed?

Really looking forward to Dishonored 0.0
As for the trailer - I don't know... my opinion of the game's graphics went down. The animations (especially the ones where somebody is killed) look poorly made to me and similar to something from 2007/2008.
0:41 - "Report any sickness", "Plague, stay away!"
1:15 - "Closed due to curfew"
My prediction - a town that has been closed down in order to stop the spread of a plague. A totalitarian regime emerges and some people live in mansions (also seen in the video) while others live in the dark part of the town, where there's poverty and plague. Police use robots to get rid of people who have contracted the disease, to limit the spread. Main character also might have got it and that gave him super-powers. As he is also a carrier of the disease, he is hunted by the police. That's how it seemed to me =)

Still remains as a very vague prediction though, based entirely on the feeling I got from the trailer, a few things that could be seen and my imagination xD

i feel as if the story line is a tale of an revenge spree of a man who lost his family and daughter to the government ,they got infected and they immediately got taken care of by it. the sheer anger and rage he exprienced after the recent death of his beloved ones helped him to find his inner hidden abilities and with them to start killing those who are responsibile for there deaths.

So you'll be on the run from the local authority while trying to find out the true killer... Cool, reminds me of the movie "The Fugitive" ;)

So did he get his powers before the murder or after? Why did everybody else die, while the main character survived? :D

Appears to have a 'dark' background story. Also, dose long-legged robotic humans look like dey r d common Enemies(since der r so many of'em) n not Bosses(as I thot from d previous trailer). I actually had vibes of RAGE while watching dis, lone avenger-dangerous environment- Dark story(kinda).....yep! Dats it.

Those long-legged guys! They reminded me of the Stalkers from Half Life 2.

i got more of the BioShock vibe. the kid that reminded me of elizabeth and that right hand weapon and left hand magic just felt like that bioshock era.
i did like the first person view but i thought it would work better from a third person perspective like asassins creed .
