Supernatural assassin action game Dishonored will be available in New Zealand on October 11, Bethesda has announced.

Developed by Bethesda Softworks’ Arkane Studios by co-creative directors Raphael Colantonio and Harvey Smith, Dishonored will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Windows PC.

“We are pleased that Dishonored has captured people’s attention,” said Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks, adding that a hands-on build would be present at E3 next month.

Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where steampunk-inspired technology and otherworldly forces coexist in the shadows.
