Bethesda teased the web with a pic yesterday that was assumed to be DLC for Skyrim. It turns out the studio were teasing and have now released the debut trailer for brilliant looking first-person action title Dishonored, which is being developed by Arkane Studios.

From the press release:

Dishonored casts you as a supernatural assassin driven by revenge. You are the once-trusted bodyguard of the beloved Empress. Framed for her murder, you become an infamous assassin, known only by the disturbing mask that has become your calling card. In a time of uncertainty, when the city is being besieged by plague and ruled by an oppressive government armed with strange technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man.

In Dishonored, creatively eliminate your targets with the flexible combat system as you combine the numerous supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets at your disposal. Pursue your enemies under the cover of darkness or ruthlessly attack them head on with weapons drawn. The outcome of each mission plays out based on the choices you make.

We can expect Dishonored on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2012.
