For the first time ever, Bethesda held its own E3 conference, and boy was it filled with an insurmountable level of awe. From Elder Scrolls Online to Fallout 4, the most outstanding announcement, even though it had been leaked last week, was that of Dishonored 2.
Explore a world unlike any other as either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano – both powerful assassins with their own unique set of supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets. Define your own playstyle by blending immsersive first-person action, assassination, stealth, mobility and the game’s brutal combat system. Combine the tools at your disposal to creatively eliminate your enemies whether you choose to pursue them unseen or ruthlessly attack head on with weapons drawn. Show no mercy and leave chaos in your wake or find a more subtle way to eliminate your targets. More than ever the choices you make will determine the outcome of each mission, and ultimately the game.
Dishonored 2 is set 15 years after the Lord Regent has been vanquished and the dreaded Rat Plague has passed into history. An otherwordly usurper has seized the throne from Empress Emily Kaldwin, leaving the fate of the Isles hanging in the balance. As either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano, travel beyond the legendary streets of Dunwall to Karnaca – a once – dazzling coastal city that holds the key to restoring Emily to power. Armed with the mark of the Outsider and powerful new supernatural abilities, hunt down your enemies and forever alter the fate of the Empire.
Here’s your first look at the official trailer:
Arkane Studios showcasing the sequel to their 2012 stealth-action game, had debuted the official CGI trailer. The trailer showed a stealth-like Corvo, however to our surprise was actually Emily Kaldwin. The details of the games release is scheduled for 2016, however there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Arkane Studios have announced a Dishonored: Definitive Edition, which includes all the DLC for the PS4 and Xbox One. The game is highly recommended, especially if you haven’t actually played the first one, or even if you want to just relive the game in all its glory on the current generation graphics capabilities.
The studio announced that Dishonored: Definitive Edition will launch at a later date this year. August 25 in North America and August 28 in Europe at €40/£30/$40.
