Bethesda has announced a series of Dishonored novels and comics that will "take readers back to the city of Dunwall" and bridge the gap between the first game and its upcoming sequel.

"Dishonored fans will soon be able to see the Empire of the Isles in a completely new way," it said. "Set 12 years after the events of the first game, the four-part series will follow the supernatural assassin Corvo Attano as he searches for an apprentice and confronts faces from his past."

Dishonored - The Corroded Man, is the first in a three-part novel series written by Adam Christopher (The Burning Dark, LA Trilogy, and The Shield) will also be released later this year. The second and third books "are scheduled for 2017 and will continue the stories of Corvo and Emily Kaldwin."
