2. Dishonored

In Dishonored you play Corvo, an ex-imperial body guard who has been framed for the murder of the Empress. Corvo is also a skilled assassin, blessed with supernatural powers and these form the crux of his revenge mission against the man who framed him, known only as 'The Regent'.

As we've come to expect from Bethesda, the game world looks to be a highlight, a mash of influences which are both individually and collectively vibrant. The backdrop for much of the game is the industrial, steampunk city of Dunwall and though you don't have complete freedom of the city, you can tackle the game in any way you wish, whether that involves killing everything in sight, or never being seen at all.
