If you’ve played anything in the stealth genre, or any stealth levels of games in the past, oh, I don’t know, ten years, then you won’t learn anything from the latest Dishonored trailer. What’s that you say? Stick to the shadows? Don’t make noise? Truly groundbreaking stuff here.
I’m kidding, of course. The video does show some neat touches to the Stealth-o-vision power, namely how sound ripples will show up if you’re moving too quickly. Shadows are easy to detect but sound can be tricky depending on how sensitive your enemies’ ears are. Oddly enough, the trailer doesn’t show one of the key aspects of stealth, namely hiding the bodies. One of the things I liked the most about seeing the game at E3 was the ability to grab a body and then use the short range teleportation power to hide the bodies above the patrolling guards. No more searching for broom closets! Just chuck those corpses up in the rafters and be on your way!
