Dishonored 2 Live Action Trailer - Take Back What's Yours
Just days after Bethesda launched Skyrim Special Edition on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, Bethesda reports that Dishonored 2 has gone gold and on its way to hit store shelves on November 11. If you’re not familiar with the old-school term, that means the development of the game is complete and is now in the hands of the publisher to manufacture and distribute.

Of course, if gamers plan on grabbing the digital version of Dishonored 2, they’ll begin to see it preload on their favorite platform before the November 11 launch. The game is now loading up on the Xbox One, and will be followed by the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro consoles on November 8. PC gamers will see the game preload on Steam on November 8 as well.

“There is an update that will download and install before you play the game. Before you play, remember to make sure that you’re online so you get the update,” Bethesda writes.

Here are the minimum and recommended PC system requirements provided by Bethesda:

“Prepare for your visit to Karnaca and get ready to take back what’s yours with Emily Kaldwin and Corvo Attano. Will you choose a stealthy, nonlethal approach? Or will you create chaos and leave a trail of blood and bodies in your wake?” Bethesda asks.

Customers who pre-order Dishonored 2 now will have exclusive early access to play one day before everyone else on November 11. The game can be purchased from Steam for $60 by heading here. And if you haven’t grabbed Skyrim Special Edition yet, it’s now available for $40 on Steam as well.
