23w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff has shared a video and details today on Dishonored's Dunwall City Trials allowing fans to put their supernatural skills to the test alongside a Challenge Maps overview, as follows:
With Dishonored, the team at Arkane Studios let you decide what type of assassin you wanted to be - you could focus on stealth and remain in shadow, or simply leave a trail of blood across the game's missions.
However you played, by the game's end, you had become Dunwall's greatest assassin.
But how do you stack up about against the rest of the world?
In Dishonored's new DLC, Dunwall City Trials, all your skills will be tested across 10 challenge maps. Providing a challenge to all levels of players, these maps will require you to creatively combine your supernatural abilities, weapons and gadgets with well-timed stealth and agility tactics.
Read below for a quick overview of the Challenge Maps:

37w ago - Sony Marketing Promotions Specialist Michael Steranka has shared some fresh video footage today announcing that the EA Sports Challenge Series is returning to the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
To quote: Attention PlayStation Nation: we're back with the biggest gaming tournament of the year - the $1 Million EA Sports Challenge Series powered by Virgin Gaming!
Last year, we blew the doors off of the sports gaming scene and now we're giving you another chance to take home huge cash prizes for playing FIFA 13, Madden NFL 13 and NHL 13.
To get a taste of what last year's experience was like, check out this video recap from the 2012 tournament finals in New York.
Last year in NYC, we made legends out of Adam Winster (FIFA 12 Challenge Champion), Tyler Glen (Madden NFL 12 Challenge Champion) and John Grasso (NHL 12 Challenge Champion). These gamers took home life-changing prizes and will be defending their titles in 2013. Bring your best game and you could be crowned this year's champ.
So How Does it Work?
This year's tournament structure has been simplified, so even if you've never played in a video game tournament before it won't take you long to get into the action. In fact, it only takes six wins to secure your spot at the live tournament...

To quote: Excitement around Hitman: Absolution has been building at an impressive rate over the last year.
In fact, today it's exactly one year ago we came out and announced that we were working on Absolution and we've had a great ride.
From sharing the first gameplay at E3 2011 and releasing the full 16 minutes for everyone to see afterwards to showing off the gorgeous orphanage level, revealing the fate of 47's long-time handler Diana, showing off new features like Instinct and introducing exciting new gameplay series of videos called 'Introducing', we can safely say the fans have been with us through quite a ride thus far.
And now it's time to kick it up another level. Today, we announce two new things. One is the Hitman: Sniper Challenge pre-order bonus and the other is the release date of Absolution. Let's start with the release date - November 20th, 2012 is the day the game will hit PS3.
So get your behind to Mars, er, GameStop and pre-order the game. Why? Well, that's where this Sniper Challenge comes in.
