Developers Arkane Studios have provided further details about their upcoming stealth action title, Dishonored.
While Dishonored features a robust interface to support its rich mechanics, it also affords players the option to tweak the UI for a fully immersive experience. Some of these selections involve multiple options, such as the crosshair style and the Health/Mana gauges. This allows gamers to play without HUD elements at all, or only with some. The UI customization is possible on both PC and consoles.
PC-specific features include a shortcut bar. This bar appears when you hit one of the shortcut buttons — which are mapped by default to the 1-10 keys — and then fades out just as quickly, giving you a more familiar interface to select your powers and gadgets. You still have the option to use the standard Quick Access radial menu wheel, which defaults to “mouse wheel click” on PC. Dishonored also supports the use of a gamepad.
A few options also mentioned are the FOV slider, controller and mouse sensitivity options, as well as four different options related to auto aim strength and aim assist, mouse smoothing/acceleration slider and enable/disable options, and graphics options for the full spectrum of monitor resolutions, anti-aliasing, and various other graphical toggles.
Dishonored is set to launch on October 9, 2012.
