Bethesda releases new Dishonored 2 information, release date

Harvey Smith began his portion of the show by introducing a hearty amount of information for upcoming title Dishonored 2.

Delivered in a similar artistic style akin to the first Dishonored title, Dishonored 2 looks to hold true to what makes the franchise unique as the gameplay trailer takes Emily and Corvo on a rather surreal experience, teasing a bit of the new ability sets and gameplay mechanics along the way; Emily’s gameplay is said to be brand new to the franchise, featuring unique abilities and mechanics to navigate the world and dispatch enemies. There’s a great deal coming with Dishonored 2, and if you haven’t had a chance to experience the first title, take advantage of the Definitive Edition on PS4 before the sequel launches.

Set fifteen years after the events of the first Dishonored title, both Emily and Corvo are driven from their scenarios into a world filled with unscripted missions and a living, breathing narrative that fills every fiber of the game, whether it’s part of a cut scene or a stroll down the road. Immersion is the key, and Dishonored 2 is set to abide by that key in both visuals and execution.

The development of Dishonored 2 focused on an artistic aesthetic by using a customized game engine designed to portray the game like a moving painting all the whle utilizing these custom tools in order to make interruptable cut scenes, a necessity for stealth-based title. While the stealth side of the game features a complete showcase of gameplay elements and abilities, Dishonored 2 also accommodates combat-ready players as well with a fully-realized set of skills and attacks to make hand-to-hand facilitating.

Fans of the series who preorder Dishonored 2 will also receive Dishonored Definitive Edition included, and this deal is not exclusive to the limited edition version of the game either, as the standard release of Dishonored 2 will also include the Definitive Edition.

On that note, Dishonored 2 is set to release November 11 of this year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
