What do you do with a drunken whaler? Stab him, apparently.
The latest gameplay trailer for Bethesda's Dishonored is set to a haunting rendition of "Drunken Sailor" reimagined as "Drunken Whaler," which goes along with the images they've teased on their tumblr. It features a bit of mysticism mixed with hints at what sets in motion the protagonist's fall from grace into being a supernatural assassin. Or, you could check out the tools of the trade and kill a few rats.

"Dishonored is set in Dunwall, an industrial whaling city where strange technology and otherworldly mysticism coexist in the shadows. 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 neo-industrial technologies, dark forces conspire to bestow upon you abilities beyond those of any common man - but at what cost? The truth behind your betrayal is as murky as the waters surrounding the city, and the life you once had is gone forever."
Dishonored comes out on October 9th.
