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.

OlliOlli World: 4 tips and tricks for beginners
The player character gets nervous while skating down a hill in OlliOlli World's cinematic trailer.

OlliOlli World is easy to pick up and play. At its core, players just press one button to push themselves forward and move the left stick to perform tricks. Still, it has a high skill ceiling thanks to its deep move pool and scoring system. As OlliOlli World tracks scores and features multiplayer leagues where players can compare them, some important tips will give players the edge over the competition.
This game gives back as much as players put into it. So whether it comes to move variation, challenges, or the routes taken in levels, there's a lot to sink into even after players beat OlliOlli World's six-hour campaign. Keep these four tips in mind, and you'll be at the top of those leaderboards and have the best time experiencing one of February 2022's best games.

You can pull off every trick from the start
OlliOlli World drip-feeds mechanics and new tricks to players through tutorials. It'll even teach players new things in the final world. Despite that, all of the player's moves are usable from the start of the game. While some early levels might not have rail grinding or wall riding, players can still pull off grabs, manuals, and other more complicated tricks from the get-go. Those who played the first two OlliOlli games can jump right in, and might even appreciate that a level run doesn't end if they don't land correctly. 
Of course, new players probably won't pull off advanced tweaks and manuals from the start, but OlliOlli World naturally gives players ample time and space to learn these moves. Those that want to maximize their score totals on early game levels should take a look at the Tricktionary, OlliOlli World's move list glossary, in the game's main menu and discover all the cool moves that players can pull off as soon as they start.

Don't use the same trick over and over again
Players going for the top spots on leaderboards or playing score-based side missions need to keep this in mind. If a player repeats a trick during a combo, they'll get fewer points than they did the first time. Players will want to build combos by constantly linking different moves together between grinds, wall rides, and manuals to get a big high score. Varying up movements also makes the game feel more refreshing and fun as a deeper appreciation is gained for OlliOlli World's easy to pick up but hard to master gameplay.

Xbox One X vs. PS4 Pro
Xbox One X

If you were someone who missed out on the past generation of consoles, or you aren't ready to make the jump to the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S quite yet, now is actually the best time to invest in the previous generation's hardware. Not only are you getting the best versions of each console (the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X) for a cheaper price, but they also are coming with massive libraries of games to choose from. Plus, you can expect plenty of the new-generation games to also run on these machines, meaning you won't miss out on most of the big titles.

Unlike the jump from the Xbox One to Xbox One S, the X is actually better in several key technical areas. The same goes for the PlayStation 4 Pro when compared to the jump from the PS4 to PS4 Slim.
