Dishonored 2 announced with trailer, coming next year

During their first ever E3 showcase on Sunday, Bethesda officially announced Dishonored 2! Arkane Studios took to the stage to confirm the game, as well as to announce that a Dishonored: Definitive Edition is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this year.

Dishonored 2

A sequel to 2012’s successful stealth action-adventure title, Dishonored 2 is scheduled to launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in Spring 2016. Players will be able to play as one of two characters, each of which possess their own supernatural abilities, weapons and gadgets.

“Reprise your role as a supernatural assassin in Dishonored 2, the highly anticipated follow up to Arkane Studios’ 2012 Game of the Year! Explore a world unlike any other as either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano – both powerful assassins with their own unique set of supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets. Define your own playstyle by blending immersive first-person action, assassination, stealth, mobility and the game’s brutal combat system. Combine the tools at your disposal to creatively eliminate your enemies whether you choose to pursue them unseen or ruthlessly attack head on with weapons drawn. Show no mercy and leave chaos in your wake or find a more subtle way to eliminate your targets. More than ever the choices you make will determine the outcome of each mission, and ultimately the game.”

“Dishonored 2 is set 15 years after the Lord Regent has been vanquished and the dreaded Rat Plague has passed into history. An otherworldly usurper has seized the throne from Empress Emily Kaldwin, leaving the fate of the Isles hanging in the balance. As either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano, travel beyond the legendary streets of Dunwall to Karnaca – a once-dazzling coastal city that holds the key to restoring Emily to power. Armed with the mark of the Outsider and powerful new supernatural abilities, hunt down your enemies and forever alter the fate of the Empire.”

“We’re excited for everyone to finally know that we’re hard at work on Dishonored 2. We’re really looking forward to sharing more details with fans and revealing gameplay for the first time later this summer.” – Harvey Smith, co-creative director at Arkane Studios

“At Arkane, we’re passionate about creating deep game experiences in highly-crafted worlds. Returning to the world of Dishonored is both thrilling and rewarding.” – Raphael Colantonio, founder and co-creative director at Arkane Studios
