Dishonored has generated quite a bit of hype and for good reason. It has had brilliant pre-release marketing with long videos showing actual gameplay (crazy concept I know), videos for backstory and context that establish the lore and intelligent commentary from the developers. The whole process has been very refreshing I must say.
Bethesda has now confirmed that Dishonored has "Gone Gold"!
We’re thrilled to announce that Dishonored has “Gone Gold”! After more than three years of development, 30+ versions of the game (accounting for different languages, countries, and platforms) are ready for release. Huge congrats to Arkane’s Lyon and Austin offices, as well as everyone else involved with the project.
For those who don't know or who are just interested, "Gone Gold" is a term used to describe software where the code is finished and it is ready for duplication and distribution. This is a momentous occasion for any developer and publisher so a celebration is warranted. How are the good folks at Bethesda celebrating?
And to celebrate, we’re going to give away an extremely limited Overseer mask (note: not actually made of gold) created specifically for our PAX Prime Boyle Mansion Party, as well as a signed copy of the game. For a chance to win, read the sweepstakes rules after the break.
Sounds like a fantastic offer with a pretty cool prize. For details on how to enter and the terms and conditions visit www.bethblog.com.
