Dishonored box art
Name: Dishonored
Release date: October 12, 2012
Platforms: PC, XBOX, PS4, X360, PS3
Genre: Action Adventure, Strategy

Description

Dishonored is an action adventure game developed by Arkane Studios in 2012. You play as Corvo, a supernatural assassin who is on a path of revenge against people who conspired to kill his queen, whom he was sworn to protect. 

Gameplay is based on broad, non-linear missions where the end objective is usually to get rid of some person. The player can then use many abilities, such as short-range teleportation, traps, or mind control, to achieve the objective through various means, with a possibility to never use lethal force. Players can also search and utilize various power-ups and upgrades.

Recommendation

Dishonored was praised by many people for its world, art style, non-linear, interesting levels and fun gameplay, while criticized that its overarching narrative left much to be desired. Overall though, it was very well received and it is a great and fun game in the minds of many players.

We would recommend playing it if you like the idea of an interesting steampunk-esque world, non-linear levels, unconventional abilities and stealth gameplay. The latest release is the Definitive Edition, which features all the released content and improved graphics.

Key store recommendations

Key resellers are sites that sell game keys at (usually) much lower prices than traditional retailers. They do this through a combination of ways, like selling keys that come in a bundle, that were on a sale and many other ways.

The reason why we separated them from traditional retailers is that these stores have been the subject of a divisive discussion for a long time.

The reason we include them is that you can buy keys on these sites usually for very big discounts, sometimes quite ridiculously cheap. In 99 % of cases, they will work the same as a much more expensive key would. For many people, especially people from countries with lower standards of living, this can mean big savings that have a significant impact on their life, while also playing the game and not resorting to piracy.

If you are buying on these stores, we have a few recommendations to follow:

  1. Just know there is a tiny risk. Either your purchase will fail and you will use your money, or that the key you recieved won't work. It has never happened to us or anyone we know, but it has certainly happened to a number of people on the internet. That is partly the nature of the business, partly un-consumer business practices of some of the stores. In 99.9 % of cases, the purchase will be ok, but sometimes it won't.
  2. If the price is not cheaper on key stores (it almost always is, though), then we recommend to buy from the traditional, established retailers.
  3. If it is a store with multiple sellers with ratings, always pick the one with the highest number of sold keys and ratings. The probability of a successful purchase is much higher if buying from a reputable key seller.
