As part of this year’s April Fool’s hilarity, Bethesda and Arkane put together an exceptionally awesome clip of gameplay from Dishonored. The good bit? It features developer commentary that’s pure bliss.
Arkane “reveals” that every NPC in the city of Dunwall is actually controlled by another human player in real time. Stand behind them long enough, and they’ll eventually die of old age.
That’s good game design right there.
A quick note on April Fool’s as it applies to gaming… we’ll post some of it, surely. If you find something hilarious, drop us a note in the comment sections or find the author on Twitter. Almost every game company on Earth releases some sort of April Fool’s joke. Covering them all would be madness, not Sparta.
