We recently saw the first good look at the gameplay of the fast-approaching sequel Dishonored 2 during E3 2016.
Now publisher Bethesda Softworks has released a new gameplay trailer focusing on the character you played as in the original game, Corvo Attano. In the sequel you have the option of playing once again as Corvo, or changing things up and playing as Emily Kaldwin, who of course was a young girl during the events of the first game. Most will likely play as one character, see how it plays out, then play again as the other character and possibly see things go down much differently.
You can read more about Dishonored 2 and watch the new gameplay trailer below.
As fully voiced characters, Emily Kaldwin and Corvo Attano now bring their own perspectives and emotional responses to the world and story. Use each character’s set of powers, gadgets and uniquely-tuned weapons in creative ways as you explore the world – 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 Arkane’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 madman’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.
Fifteen years after the events of the first game, the Royal Protector Corvo Attano is back in action, and it looks like he’s just gotten better (and stronger) with age. He still has his familiar powers, but they’ve all gotten quite the upgrade since the original Dishonored launched in 2012. Corvo’s Blink ability now allows you to pause time as you choose your destination. Possession can be chained from host to host, allowing Corvo to slip through an area unnoticed in a completely new way. Bend Time lets you completely control the flow of time, slowing and advancing it as you need. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. See more of Corvo’s abilities in a new action-packed trailer – and get a peek at what’s behind the conflict that draws Corvo back into the fray.
Will you continue Corvo’s journey in Dishonored 2, or will you step into a new pair of polished boots as the regal yet lethal Empress Emily Kaldwin? The choice is yours when Dishonored 2 launches on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on November 11.
