Bethesda’s Dishonored is one of the few non-sequels scheduled for release this Fall. As such, the publisher has been attempting to introduce gamers to the world of Dunwall with a series of developer diaries and plenty of trailers showcasing the steampunkish setting.
This week, they’ve gone a step further with the release of “The Tales From Dunwall,” a three-part series of animated shorts narrated by Chloe Grace Moretz (Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass) and scored by Dexter‘s Daniel Licht.
Hit the jump to view all three vignettes and prepare yourself for Dishonored’s PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 release on October 9.
Episode 1 – “The Awakening”
“The Awakening” gives you a first-hand glimpse into Dishonored’s shadowy whaling world of Dunwall, where plague is rampant and the city is in disarray and on the verge of dystopia.
Episode 2 – “The Hand That Feeds”
While the first episode reveals how Dunwall was revolutionized by a new energy source, this next chapter is a cautionary tale – one that illustrates the advantages, and the dangerous disadvantages, of accepting supernatural abilities from The Outsider.
Episode 3 – “In the Mind of Madness”
“In the Mind of Madness” introduces Piero, a key figure in the city of Dunwall, and who also plays a pivotal role in Corvo’s story.
