DISCLAIMER : The author is looking forward to both Assassin’s Creed 3 and Dishonored, both of them stand the chance of being incredible. This post just takes a look a how Dishonored will best certain aspects of what we’ve seen AC do before and is not meant to hate on either upcoming titles.

These latest images from their supernatural assassin outing will likely leave you whimpering in a crumpled heap, only to be revived by watching this epic CGI Dishonored trailer again.
