'Dishonored 2' Arrives On November 11

At its inaugural E3 event last year, Bethesda introduced Dishonored 2, the sequel to the hit game from Arkane Studios. Details on the new game were slim since E3, but that changed today as we found out that Dishonored 2 is coming on November 11.

NameDishonored 2
TypeFirst-Person, Action/Adventure, Stealth
DeveloperArkane Studios
PublisherBethesda Softworks
Release DateNovember 11, 2016
PlatformsPC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One

For those who need a recap, Dishonored 2 will take place in a city called Karnaca. You can still choose to play as Corvo Attano, the main character from the first game, or as Emily Kaldwin. Kaldwin was just a child in the first game, but now she’s an adult with her own set of powers and weapons that she uses to take down specific targets. She was the main focus of the game’s initial announcement trailer at E3.

Just like its predecessor, Dishonored 2 will present you with multiple ways to approach the target, and your use (or lack thereof) of force will determine the choices you make throughout the story.

Over the next few months, we’re bound to hear more details about the game. Bethesda announced that the game will be present at its BE3 Showcase next month where fans will get to see gameplay footage for the first time.

    I've been looking forward to this from 2016, as well. I didn't play the first until just last summer, but boy, I ended up really liking it. Let's just hope they don't balls this up the way Dice/EA ballsed up the new Mirror's Edge. Or the way Squeenix could very possibly balls up the new Deus Ex the way they ballsed up the new Hitman.

    Dishonored was a terrific game and its sequel is definitely something to look forward to.
    Dishonored 2, Deux Ex Mankind Divided, Final Fantasy XV are in my opinion the top games this year to watch out for. Together with already released Dark Souls 3 (which is still a buggy port on PC unfortunately) and the brilliant fantastic port of Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen which I can hardly stop playing - this year came out surprisingly strong!

    As for D2, I kinda wish the developers would have made new Thief games - Thief 4 for that matter. I know they would have done the series more justice and stayed loyal to it.

    I was absolutely hooked once I started playing the original a few years ago. It's definitely in my top ten all time greats, and I've been gaming since the 80's. Added all the DLC, and still come back to it occasionally. Really looking forward t Dishonored 2.

    dstarr3,
    Mirror's Edge 2 isn't even out yet, so how did they mess it up?

    Anyway, I'm fairly sure D2 will be as good or better than the original. Dishonored looks great to me still, and the game mechanics are great they could be tweaked a bit. For example, some things are too easy to use like RATS eating people.

    (in games like Skyrim, STEALTH being too high can also just kill the experience)

    Played the beta. They just turned it into a generic open-world action title, instead of what it should have been: a focused, first-person precision platformer. You fail missions if you don't assault police. If baddies are in your way, you have to take them out, instead of doing your job and just running away.

    It's just another bland sequel made by committees that completely misunderstood what made the original great.

    Hmm.. well I'll just have to wait for reviews and see if that represents the actual single player experience or not.

    I'm predicting the single player experience will be closer to the original. What you describe sounds more like a specific scenario maybe for that part of a single player, or maybe even a multiplayer idea but it's all academic until the official product is out and reviewable.
