9w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff announced alongside a video that Dishonored Game of the Year Edition hits PS3 tomorrow.
To quote: It's hard to believe this week marks the one year anniversary of Dishonored's release. it's been rewarding to see so many people people get the game Arkane set out to develop.
It's wonderful and very humbling to see the game win numerous Game of the Year accolades (and be able to release a "Game of the Year Edition"), but there's even more satisfaction in hearing fans embracing the fiction and emergent gameplay.
When Arkane was making the final push on finishing the game, their building excitement to see the game in the wild was palpable - like children on Christmas Eve. Visions of YouTube speedruns danced in their heads.
They weren't disappointed. Launch day and the months that followed provided endless entertainment - seeing the variety of ways players took on the role of Corvo - non-lethal playthroughs, absolutely brutal and literally unthinkable killer moves, and everything in between.
Amazing cosplay, fan-fiction, and fan art embracing provided icing on the cake. You guys really like The Outsider.
16w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff invites fans to meet the Hatters and Eels in Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches today with a fresh video trailer below.
To quote: This week on PSN, the story of Daud - the legendary assassin behind the death of Dunwall's beloved Empress, Jessamine Kaldwin - concludes in Dishonored's final add-on: The Brigmore Witches.
Having been betrayed by your top lieutenant, Billie Lurk, in The Knife of Dunwall, you'll need to rely on two rival gangs - the Dead Eels and the Hatters - in order to make your way to Brigmore Mansion to confront The Brigmore Witches' main antagonist, Delilah.
To set the stage, we're giving you a first look at two in-game journals providing background on the rift between the Dead Eels and The Hatters. The groups are led by Lizzy Stride and Mortimer Hat (aka Geezer), respectively.
Excerpt from a City Watch River Patrol Report
William Cotter, captain of the merchant vessel, The Windover, reports that on the 23rd day of the Month of Nets his vessel was waylaid by the Dead Eels, a gang of notorious criminals known for acts of river piracy, wanton destruction, and smuggling.

34w ago - Bethesda Softworks Global Community Lead Matt Grandstaff announced today alongside a video that Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall PS3 DLC is out Tuesday.
Below are the details, to quote: You've played the role of the Empress' protector, and now you will experience Dishonored from the other side of the coin.
Watch our newly released trailer for Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall, which puts you in the role of Daud - the assassin responsible for Empress Jessamine's death.
Those that have played through Dishonored know Daud possesses the Mark of the Outsider - granting him supernatural abilities. But don't expect to be playing as a Corvo clone - Daud can call for help with 'Summon Assassin', track down runes and bone charms with "Void Gaze", and his variation on Blink allows him to stop time - even in mid air.
You'll needs these powers, as well as stealth weapons like Daud's custom wristbow and arc mines to survive some of the most challenging areas in Dunwall - including the Rothwild Slaughterhouse, Legal District, and a return to Daud's hidden base in the Flooded District. Nothing you can't handle, right?
As with Dishonored, we encourage you to play The Knife of Dunwall...

To quote: In one day, we will release Dishonored, our new first-person action game developed by the talented team at Arkane Studios. Dishonored puts you in the role of Corvo Attano, bodyguard of the Empress of Dunwall.
A pretty good gig... until you're falsely accused of killing her, kidnapping her daughter, and subsequently imprisoned and tortured by the sinister Lord Regent. Despite this, you remain the best hope for saving Dunwall, where plague is rampant and the city is on the verge of dystopia.
Early in your adventure, you will receive "The Outsider's Mark" – a mysterious tattoo on your left hand that grants you supernatural abilities. As you progress through the game, this mark will allow you to unlock new abilities, each of which can be upgraded to a second level for improved functionality.
