As expected, developer Arkane Studios was on hand at Bethesda Softworks’ E3 2016 event to show off more of the much-anticipated sequel, Dishonored 2.
In addition to offering a closer look at the world the game is set in, the first gameplay demo, which looks at some of the ways you can approach your game including some of the abilities you’ll have to play with, and a gameplay trailer were also shared with the masses.
Continue below to check out the new Dishonored 2 gameplay demo and trailer.
As fully voiced characters, Emily Kaldwin and Corvo Attano now bring their own perspectives and emotional responses to the world and story. Use each characterâ€™s set of powers, gadgets and uniquely-tuned weapons in creative ways as you explore the world â€“ whether you fight your way through the city streets or sneak across the rooftops – and which enemies you decide to eliminate or spare.
Advanced bonecharm crafting and all-new upgrade trees allow you to customize your powers in vastly different ways. Become a living shadow to silently stalk your targets, link enemies so they share a common fate, or mesmerize your foes and dominate their minds. Choose from nearly infinite combinations of violence, nonlethal combat, powers and weapons to accomplish your objectives.
From the grimy, rat-infested streets of Dunwall to the lush, exotic coasts of a decaying Karnaca, immerse yourself in stylized locales created by Arkaneâ€™s premiere art and narrative teams. The world is a character in its own right, rich with story, architecture and eclectic characters. It is also punctuated by signature mission locations, such as the Dust District, ravaged by dust storms and warring factions, and a madmanâ€™s mansion made of shifting walls, deadly traps and clockwork soldiers.
The Void Engine
Dishonored 2 is beautifully brought to life with the new Void Engine, a leap forward in rendering technology, built from id Tech and highly-customized by Arkane Studios. Designed to support world-class art direction and take full advantage of the powerful hardware this generation has to offer, the Void Engine allows for significant advances to all game systems, including responsive stealth and combat Artificial Intelligence, lighting and graphical rendering, impressively dense urban environments, and story presentation.
Customize your gameplay options and difficulty settings for an even more tailored adventure. You can make the experience more challenging (or easier) by changing myriad parameters related to stealth, movement and combat.
Dishonored 2 is set to hit store shelves on November 11th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
