Everything We Know About Dishonored 2

One of the more popular announcements at E3 2015 was the reveal of Dishonored 2, the sequel to Arkane Studio’s 2012 hit, “Dishonored”, that many gamers have enjoyed. In the days following the first trailer viewing at the Bethesda Showcase many things were revealed in interviews with developers. Here is what we know so far.

  • Dishonored 2 takes place 15 years after the first Dishonored.
  • The game starts with reviewing a day in the life of Empress Emily Kaldwin. Emily Kaldwin was a natural choice for Arkane to explore more after the first game.
  • After someone else seizes the throne, Emily is driven out of Dunwall and is labeled an outlaw.
  • At this point you can then continue the game as Emily or Corvo Attano, the hero from the first game.
  • The game takes place in Karnaca, the capital city of Serkonos, which is known as the jewel of the south. Fans will remember that this warm Empire of the Isles country is also the birthplace of Corvo.
  • Like Dunwall before it, Karnaca is in the midst of an epidemic. You may have seen the blood flies in the trailer. Like the plague rats in Dishonored, these can be a natural hazard. This species lays insects in corpses which then hatches out of them.
  • Both Emily and Arkane play through the same series of missions, but each have different perspectives on the world. By playing through the campaign with both characters you will learn different things. There is no swapping between characters; once you choose one you stick with it until a second playthrough.
  • Emily and Corvo each have unique powers granted to them by The Outsider.
  • All powers have extensions like Daud’s Blink that let you use powers in different ways
  • Arkane believes this new approach to upgrades offers a lot of replayability. You could go really deep with three specific powers in one playthrough, then switch it up for another.
  • If you’ve seen videos like this on the web, you know that talented gamers have found ingenious ways to string together powers to become unstoppable killing machines. Arkane says it’s preserving the systems that allow for experimentation with the special abilities.
  • The A.I have increased situational awareness and make better decisions, including rechecking the same spot twice.
  • Arkane is saying that Dishonored 2 will be much more difficult than Dishonored, as many fans claimed it was too easy.

Dishonored is currently scheduled for release in the spring of 2016. Was this your favorite announcement from E3? Tell us in the comments below.
