Check out Dishonored 2's first 3 missions for free on April 6

If you've been waiting for a reason to dive into the Dishonored series, Bethesda is ready to serve one up. Aspiring supernatural assassins will be able to check out Dishonored 2 for free with a trial experience launching on April 6 (via Engadget).

No matter your platform of choice, Bethesda has you covered. The trial will be available on PC via Steam, as well as Xbox One and PS4. All told, you'll be able to check out the game's first three missions, playing as either your choice of Empress Emily Kaldwin or Royal Protector Corvo Attano. Once you're finished, you can upgrade to the full game and keep any progress you made during the trial.

Dishonored 2 review: It's so much more fun to be bad

It may be nearly 5 months old, but Dishonored 2 features a story chock full of revenge and an incredibly fluid combat system that are both worth checking out. If you've been hesitant to drop a full $60 on the game thus far, you can get a small taste of the action starting April 6 for free.

  • I will buy this after the game is fully patched up and after all the DLCs will launch. I may give this trial a go just for kicks.
  • Been waiting to play this, a trial is exactly what is needed.
  • I picked it up on disc for $20 after Christmas. Traded it in last week for $25. Worth every penny for one play through. My only gripe is the inability to turn off item text motion when reading found items. First game ever to cause slight motion sickness for me.
  • The first 3 missions?  That is pretty generous.  If you are being careful in the game (stealth, nokill, blood & steel), a single mission can take several hours.  They probably do this for those that like to just run through the missions killing everything in site.  I personally think it is the "wrong" way to play, as it is only fun that way for a short time, and absolutely no challenge. That said, it is a pretty great game.  I think I prefer the first one more (especially the DLC), but playing as either Corvo or Emily is a good way to mix things up.
