Publisher Bethesda revealed that Arkane Studios’ first-person, stealth-action game Dishonored 2 will hit the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC platforms on November 11.
A direct follow-up to 2012’s Dishonored, Dishonored 2 continues the story of supernatural assassin Corvo Attano, and introduces an array of upgradable weapons and abilities for players to master. Dishonored 2 also introduces a new playable character, allowing players to experience the game’s story from the perspective of former Empress Emily Kaldwin.
According to Bethesda, Dishonored 2‘s narrative is defined by player choice, and in-game events can have multiple outcomes depending on how players approach the challenges they’ll face throughout.
“Will you make your way through the game unseen, make full use of its brutal combat system or use a blend of both?” Bethesda asks. “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.”
In addition to offering an alternate perspective on the game’s storyline, new playable character Emily Kaldwin brings an arsenal of unique abilities into battle, including a “Shadow Walk” skill that allows her to transform into a cloud of fog. Returning protagonist Corvo will also earn new stealth-oriented powers throughout the quest.
Bethesda previously hinted that players can expect to see a third path through the game’s storyline, but did not divulge further information regarding additional playable characters. Thus far, Bethesda has revealed few details regarding Dishonored 2‘s cast of characters, though its story is known to take place 15 years after the events of the original Dishonored.
Dishonored 2‘s first-ever gameplay footage will premiere during Bethesda’s 2016 E3 Showcase, to be held on June 12th in Los Angeles California. The event will be streamed live via Twitch and YouTube starting at 7 p.m. PT.
