Arkane Studios gave us our first look at some Dishonored 2 gameplay yesterday at Bethesda’s E3 conference. And I cannot wait to jump back into the wonderful world of supernatural assassination.
Dishonored 2 takes us away from the smoggy Victorian rooftops of Dunwall and introduces us to the sun bleached streets of Karnaca. Karnaca is the homeland of masked Dishonored 1 hero Corvo Attano. But make no mistake boys and girls, though the sun may be shining, this city is far from innocent.
Dishonored 2 offers us the chance to play as returning royal protector Corvo or the deposed empress of Dunwall, Emily Kaldwin. Both protagonists offer different skills and supernatural abilities to complete their missions. For example, Emily possesses new and exciting abilities such as telekinesis and the bestial shadow walk. Arkane have also promised more variation to the power upgrade system from the first game. The trailer shows some new and intriguing additions to the Dishonored universe such as creepy bird robots, grotesque flesh eating insects and all new ways to traverse the complex and detailed environments.
The first Dishonored was one of my favourite games of all time, and I personally can’t wait to throw myself back into its richly crafted world. So what do you think of the trailer? Are you excited to step back into the shoes of Corvo Attano? Or will you retake the throne of Dunwall as the Empress herself? Let us know in the comments and on social media!
