Developer Arkane Studios’ Dishonored 2 was one of the best games of 2016. And if you haven’t played it yet, you’ll have a chance to do so this week for free.
Bethesda Softworks has announced a free trial for the game will be released later in the week, which will offer those who haven’t been convinced to buy it yet a chance to dive into the first three missions of the game and see if it’s something they should re-consider. With the myriad ways one can approach each mission, this means hours of gaming goodness on the house.

DEVELOPER: Arkane Studios
PUBLISHER: Bethesda Softworks
RELEASE DATE: November 11, 2016
The sequel to 2012’s Dishonored arrived last week and I, quite excitedly, got to check it out and am here to share some thoughts for those on the fence about buying it.
In Dishonored 2, once again developed by Arkane Studios, you’re able to choose between playing as Corvo Attano, who everyone who played the first game played as; and young Empress Emily Kaldwin, who was a child caught in the middle of a nasty situation during the events of the original. It also takes you away from the city of Dunwall and into the coastal city of Karnaca, the capital of Serkonos known as “The Jewel of the South at the Edge of the World.”
I, and I’m sure many others, have already seen more than enough to be sold on and excited for developer Arkane Studios’ Dishonored 2.
Even so, publisher Bethesda Softworks is keeping the marketing campaign going strong ahead of the game’s release next week. They’ve released a new story trailer titled “Book of Karnaca,” which sets up what’s going on in that world in a cool animated pop-up book style inspired by one of the game’s levels, the Clockwork Mansion.
