Become a supernatural assassin in Dishonored 2, now available on Xbox One and PC

Dishonored 2 is officially here, letting fans of the first game once again step into the shoes of protagonist Corvo or — this time — Emily. For those who didn't already pre-order, the game is now available to both purchase and play for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.

To recap, Dishonored 2 once again allows you to take on the role of a supernatural assassin. Throughout the game, you'll make your way through a story that reacts to the choices you make — all while choosing carefully how to use the unique abilities of either Corvo or Emily to exact your revenge. Most interestingly, you get to choose whether to take enemies head-on, or go with a more stealthy, nuanced approach as you progress.

If Dishonored 2 piques your interest, you can grab the game for both Xbox One and PC now for $60. It is worth noting, however, that some PC players are experiencing performance problems with the port. Though these should eventually be resolved with a patch, it's worth considering if you're planning to play on PC.

Let us know in the comments below if you'll be taking on the role of Emily or Corvo this weekend!
