During their E3 conference, Arkane debuted the first gameplay footage of Dishonored 2. It looks very shiny. And French.

In Dishonored 2, Emily rules over Dunwald with the aid of her Grizzled But Weirdly Hot Dad, Dishonored 1 hero Corvo. But then, bad dudes oust her, and Emily and Corvo (both playable) have to unravel a conspiracy and kill a whole mess of jerks by dropping whale oil tanks on them. The game mostly takes place in Karnaca, a new city. It’s less grey than the first game’s Dunwall and much more vertical.

There are, of course, new combat mechanics and teleporting stealth ghost powers. For instance, Emily can link soldiers together such that if one, say, gets stunned by a stun mine, so will others. Emily can also shadow walk, allowing her to, er, walk in shadows and be seemingly invisible.

One of the environments Arkane showed off was a ruined manor in which you can leap THROUGH TIME. You can even use your time piece to see where soldiers are in the past before jumping all the way back in time and sneaking past them or slicing them to shiny, French ribbons. It looked dope as fuck.

Dishonored 2 will be out on November 11.


  • Personal Opinion, but nothing that bethesda showed really wowed me or warranted a whole event.

  • Looks EXACTLY what I had hoped. Between this and Andromeda, this week’s off to a stellar start.

  • The problem with dishonored is I like getting the “good” ending in games, so I did the whole first one sneaky and didn’t get to go full carnage for fear of stuffing up my ending.

  • Well, that was wholly underwhelming. Might pick it up in a couple years time if nothing better comes out between now and then.

  • I thought it looked great. One of my highlights of the day. I’ve never played Dishonored 1 so I might look into that first
