Bethesda has announced that it will publish Arkane Studios' next title, a new 'FPS stealth adventure game' titled Dishonored.

Arkane was bought out by Bethesda's parent company, Zenimax Media, last August.

An exclusive reveal of the game has gone to US magazine Game Informer, who describe Dishonored as 'the antithesis of a edge-of-your-seat roller-coaster ride'

'It's a game about assassination where you don't have to kill anyone. It's a game about infiltration where you can set up traps and slaughter the entire garrison of an aristocrat's mansion rather than sneak in. It's a game about brutal violence where you can slip in and out of a fortified barracks with nobody ever knowing you were there. It's a game about morality and player choice where the world you create is based on your actions, not navigating conversation trees.'

Several notable developers are attached to the title, including Harvey Smith (Deus Ex) and Vikto Antonov (Half-Life 2).

Dishonored is set for release next year on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360.
