When the world is mad, the sane will be preyed upon
Bethesda and Arkane Studios have released the third and final episode of their The Tales from Dunwall web series, "The Mind of Madness," leading into the October release of Dishonored. Where the previous two episodes, "The Awakening" and "The Hand that Feeds," have certainly been anything but commonplace, "Mind of Madness" is a much more open-ended and abstract experience. The mood is certainly set for Dishonored.
"The Mind of Madness" introduces Piero, a tinker of sorts, though whose job is never fully detailed. Piero is haunted by ghastly images, though whether he's going mad or is simply an unwilling participant in a mad world... Either way, Piero has a task set before him, as task that will help Corvo, Dishonored's protagonist, begin his deadly mission for vengeance. The Empress has been killed and there is much work to be done.
Who exactly is Piero? Who is the Outsider? And how do the pieces fall that draw the two and Corvo together? The stage is set, and all that's left to do is wait. Dishonored releases October 9, October 12 in the UK, for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
