Dishonored 2 slips out of the shadows on November 11th

Dishonored 2 release date revealed 2

Dishonored was, and still firmly is, one of my favourite stealth-focused games. There’s a lot to take in when you’re first introduced to assassin Corvo and his revenge fuelled plot, but somehow the entire thing weaves together to nicely that it feels not only elegant to play, but natural. Nevermind that being a supernaturally powered assassin ticks so many power fantasies that I’m not sure where to begin, but Dishonored 2 will compound that.

So it’s a good thing we’re not being forced to wait too long for it, with Bethesda announcing that the sequel to the Arkane developed action title will be out before the year closes.

That’s of course subjective to the all too real threat of delays, but for now Dishonored 2 is pretty adamant on occupying the space of November 11th. Game Informer revealed the title as their cover story for June, meaning we’re going to get a whole host of information over the next few weeks about the mysterious title.

What we know now is that it takes place a full 15 years after the first title, and features two playable characters – the silent but deadly Corvo from the first game, and the now dethroned Empress Emily Kaldwin – with the latter bringing with her some new powers to tinker and toy with.

Bethesda have also confirmed that the first public showing of the sequel will take place at their Sunday  E3 showcase, taking the stage a year after the game was formally revealed. Gearing up for launch in the months that follow, don’t be too surprised to see more and more about Dishonored too, with the game forming a major part of Bethesda’s 2016 release schedule.

It’s out on Xbox One, PS4 and PC later this year.

  1. For a few minutes I had to try and remember if I played the first one. I hope the 2nd one has a more memorable story …

    I really enjoyed the first one, so I’ve got some high hopes for the sequel. Figuring out how to get in unseen, removing the target quickly & quietly, then slipping away again. Only people I killed were the elite guards and their ilk – the really bad ones – normal guards I left alone. Quite civic-minded of me I thought.

      I played the first one like a Neanderthal that discovered his first rock tipped club, bodies were strewn across the streets like leaves on an autumn day…
