In the first two parts of a three-part web series, developer Arkane Studios explores what went down before Dishonored's supernatural assassin Corvo began walking the path of vengeance. In the first one, "The Awakening," a philosopher ponders his life's ambitions only to discover that everything he worked for was wrong.
The trio of shorts are scored by Dexter composer Daniel Licht who also supplies the music for the game.
You can check out the second short after the jump.
The second short, "The Hand That Feeds," shows the true costs of accepting the supernatural gifts offered by the Outsider.
Dishonored will be available on October 9th for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 from Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios.
