Bethesda has gone all out in their efforts to steal E3. Along with a ferocious, gory display of the new Doom game and Fallout 4’s imminent reveal, Bethesda and Arkane Studios announced the future of the Dishonored franchise with both Dishonored 2 and Dishonored: Definitive Edition.
Like the first game, the sequel takes place in a country during a revolution. You can choose to play as two characters, the returning protagonist Corvo or the newest protagonist, Emily Kaldwin. The game’s story will vary depending on which character you choose, but characters cannot be switched during playthroughs. Corvo and Emily will have different gameplay features as well. Emily features a blue grappling hook made of a blue, organic matter. Emily can use this matter to scale buildings quickly, similar to Corvo’s Blink ability. Once again, the entire Dishonored story can be played through without killing anyone, confirmed by both Bethesda and Arkane Studios.
This wasn’t the only good news for Dishonored fans. The original Dishonored along with all of its DLC packs will be coming to the Xbox One and PS4 in just a couple weeks. The games will presumably feature updated graphics (1080p, 60fps) and all the previously stated DLC packs. The game can be pre-ordered starting today and the game will be releasing sometime in August. Dishonored 2 will have a release date sometime in 2016, but nothing has been confirmed.
