Dishonored’s Julien Roby: ”First game you can play an assassin and don’t kill anybody”


"Julien: Well the reason that we went with an assassin; we were trying to come up with a type of gameplay to let the player play his own way.

I would say the archetype of the assassin has this kind of idea that I can just sneak around and not be detected at all or just kill everybody because he’s an assassin.

So it was kind of good for that and also, as you said, because the fact a player who does not want to kill anybody could still play the game and play around this constraint.

So it’s like the first game where you play an assassin and don’t actually kill anybody, haha."

The story is too old to be commented.

This game sounds so amazing: so amazing I'm almost afraid it won't live up to the huge ambition it has!!!

chriski3332160d ago

No!!!!! Everyone must pay!!! Kill'em all!!!!!!;)

I love the vision of this game and that you can go through it potentially without killing anyone. That's a challenge for hardcore gamers: to go against the instincts trained in us in so many games to kill and instead find solutions that are different.

DeusExer2161d ago

I'm looking forward to this due to the fact it's a new IP.

The artistic style of blending the Steampunk and Victorian eras look interesting as well.

Replayability is a big thing for me. Knowing I can play through a game multiple times, each time giving a new experience, is a great point to market a game.

BadCircuit2161d ago

I really want this to succeed.

It has a bit of historic 'realism' with its environments and themes but also a bit of 'otherworld' that makes it able to do new things too.

I hope people give it a go instead of trotting like sheep to the next COD.

"What? It has no AC-130? Rubbish."

supersonicjerry2160d ago

What is wrong with COD? I'm proudly getting both this and Black Ops 2. I don't see why everybody that gets cod is automatically a "sheep" I get COD to play it competitively and try to make money off of playing it and because I actually like some of the games not MW3 tho.

Game looks very promising. Can't Wait

Does Solid Snake count as an assassin? Because you could do MGS4 without killing anyone.

Allsystemgamer2161d ago

No he doesn't. He's a soldier.

cyclindk2160d ago

Which suggests... assassins cannot then be considered soldiers?

Hmmm... allow me to consult the Compendium of Answers to Absurd Arguments vol.7 for the solutio... ackkkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!....

Ace_Pheonix2161d ago

You can play all of them without killing anyone. But yeah, not really an assassin. This game does look pretty great. Still won't amount to much compared to MGS.

Megaton2161d ago

That's what I thought, that all of them could be done strictly with tranqs. Couldn't remember for sure, though.

Baka-akaB2161d ago

it still makes the claim for dishonored rubbish ... unless of course even in cutscenes and boss fight you dont directly harm anyone

UnwanteDreamz2161d ago (Edited 2161d ago )

Yes he does. In MGS4 Snake works for no government. He takes a mission to assassinate Liquid Ocelot making him an assassin. Hell he even has Assassins Creed outfit you can earn.

cyclindk2160d ago (Edited 2160d ago )

I don't know, how do assassins count?!

Bada bing!

Ohhhh, that was preeeeety bad.

Which tool to use, so many to choose, easy to confuse,

Take one down, without a sound,
