If Bethesda were gunning for “Most Unusual AAA Trailers” award of 2016, they’re doing a damn good job of winning so far.
Remember when AAA trailers were all about fast cut-aways of in-game footage and long sweeping shots from cut scenes?
Dishonored 2 isn’t doing that.
Instead, Bethesda has crafted a video where all the action unfolds on a 3D pop-up book. It’s … weird. It’s not what AAA games generally do.
I don’t know whether the message works for me, but I like that it’s so … different. It fits with the black magic and mystique that Dishonored is trying to sell.
Dishonored 2 is due out on November 11. Are you excited or interested in the game?
