Here's the third episode in the "Tales from Dunwall" short film series released by Bethesda and produced by animation and marketing company Psyop to promote Dishonored.

It's just as macabre as the last two (check out the first here and the second here), although this one finally ties the films into the story of the game. Or that's how it appears, at least; what's the deal with that mask, anyway? We've seen it before in promotional images, and it looks like it's going to be quite important.

The "Tales from Dunwall" series was animated by hand, with 3D and other fancy effects added afterward. We can't wait to see how they tie into the story of Dishonored, which drops Oct. 9 in the U.S.
