Bethesda shows off brand new Dishonored 2 gameplay, collector's edition

You will be able to play as both Corvo and an adult Emily Caldwin from the first game, and both characters are fully voiced with their own abilities and story arcs.

Dishonored 2 lands on PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 11th.

Both Emily and Corvo weild supernatural abilities to assassinate or stealth their way to victory. As with the first game, player's actions will have a dramatic effect on how the story plays out. Developer Arkane Studios have ramped up the amount of freedom players will have for tackling missions, using abilities in creative combinations, often with gory results.

"Reprise your role as a supernatural assassin in Dishonored 2 – the next chapter in the award-winning Dishonored saga by Arkane Studios. Play your way in a world where mysticism and industry collide. Will you choose to play as Empress Emily Kaldwin or the Royal Protector, Corvo Attano? Will you stalk your way through the game unseen, make full use of its brutal combat system, or use a blend of both? How will you combine your character's unique set of powers, weapons and gadgets to eliminate your enemies? The story responds to your choices, leading to intriguing outcomes, as you play through each of the game's hand-crafted missions."

Dishonored 2 will also have a collector's edition, that features a replica of Corvo's mask and Emily's ring. Supplies will be limited, however, so stay tuned for more information on where to buy.

Additionally, if you pre-order Dishonored 2, you'll receive a copy of Dishonored Definitive Edition for free, which remastered the original game for Xbox One, PC and PS4.

  • So much looking forward to this! Dishonored 1 was amazing. One of my favourite stories and "feel" of all time.
  • what is it about?  I regret not buying the definitive edition when it was on sale, was looking forward to the next sale, then again, if the second comes with the first free...
  • Hmm, that CE sounds intriguing, as does getting the first on XB1 with a pre-order. I'll watch for availability and pricing for sure.
  • YEEES! I hope the story is as good as the first one. It was so amazing.
  • looks great. they should bring dishonerd as  a backwards compat title so we can play it now. if we didn't  im surprised it wasn't announced.
  • Would probably rather you bought the Definitive Edition already on Xbox One.
  • ohh im adding that to my list. i missed that man! thanks for the heads up!!!
  • i expect nothing less than an amazing story like in the first game, at least. maybe even a better one and hopefully a bit longer too. it my favorite game of all time along assassins creed ezio trilogy, with a little upper hand since i played this one several times, in all game modes possible and with many different skills combinations. i really love the game and hope my now old pc will be able to run it at least on low specs.
