In some respect, Prey has been a long time coming. Originally, the title was planned and announced as a sequel to the 2006 game by Human Head Studios, also known as Prey. However, development hell ensued during the following years. Mostly put down to the acquisition of the IP by Bethesda from 3D Realms. It wasn’t until eight years after its announcement that its cancellation was confirmed and all seemed dead and buried for Prey. But that was not the case after Bethesda’s announcement in 2016 that whilst not a sequel, a so called ‘re-imagining’ of the first game was ... Read More »

Welcome back to the Empire of the Isles, some fifteen years after the events of 2012’s Dishonored unfolded, when protagonist Corvo Attano fought his way through throngs of flat-faced enemies to save the slain empress’ daughter, Emily Kaldwin. Dishonored 2 opens with Emily as the Empress of the Isles – but Emily’s an altogether more formidable ruler than her mother. Over the last fifteen years, Corvo’s trained Emily to protect herself from assassins.

Arkane Studio's and Bethesda's Dishonored 2 released this past Friday, but so far sales have not lived up to those of the original, in the same time frame. Currently sitting at number four in the all format charts, this weeks crown has been retained by Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It would appear that the cerebral first person sequel is among one of the 'Christmas rush' casualties so far this year and only reached eleventh in the individual charts for Xbox One. This brings Dishonored 2 in with a 38% drop in sales, in the first week, compared its forefather which released ...

Dishonoured 2, the very anticipated title from the team at Bethesda has a 9gb day one patch, on Xbox One at least.

Dishonoured 2 releases Friday 11th. Don’t forget to join our Facebook  group, like our Facebook page and follow ... Read More »

In an video on the Bethesda YouTube page, Arkane President Raphael Colantonio goes into a few details about the new Prey, and what goes into making an Arkane title. Highlights include the ...

Our favourite stealth or alert everyone and run like hell first person game is back with a bang (If you aren’t very stealthy!) later this year in November. The first game in the series was a critical hit but for whatever reason seemed to pass a lot of normal gamers by which Microsoft rectified somewhat by giving the game away for free on the Xbox 360 and also releasing a Definitive Edition on the Xbox One. If we had to put money on it we would say that it’s highly likely that the definitive edition will be released as a ... Read More »
Dishonored 2's co-creative director, Harvey Smith, is on-hand in this latest video from Bethesda Softworks to give insight on what we saw in sequel's E3 announcement trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SrpKYglEaus Apparently Smith, and co-creative director Raphael Colantonio, stipulated the announcement trailer, much like Dishonored's, should only portray locations, people and actions that will be available in the game. It's confirmed that the man behind the desk is a student of Anton Sokolov's, the first game's grizzly scientist;  there's also information on the robotic enemies Emily Kaldwin fights, including how as you progress through the game there will be versions made from wood with startling bird-like heads, and ...
