I have literally just started this game last week and while I think “The Last of Us” or “BioShock Infinite” should be game of the year on everyone’s list, I can see why “Dishonored” has been one of the most talked about and nominated games. The GOTY edition will be released on October 8th in North America and on October 11th in Europe.
The GOTY edition of “Dishonored” will include the downloadable content (DLC) add-ons Dunwall City Trials, The Knife of Dunwall, The Brigmore Witches and Void Walker’s Arsenal. It will be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. It’s priced at $39.99.
Whether you took the stealth route or the brutal one (which is my current choice), the GOTY edition is worth of your time and money (and possibly soul depending on your relationship with the Outsider.)
