You might have seen actual proper gameplay from Dishonored 2 [official site] on Bethesda’s E3 press conference stream, or maybe you read Adam’s retelling of Emily’s wee adventure. Or maybe you didn’t. Or maybe you want to see it again. Maybe you don’t even know what it is (if so: it is a jolly exciting supernatural first-person stealth-ish game set in a strange version of Victorian-y Europe). The point is, look below: it’s Harvey Smith’s twenty-minute presentation of sneaking, gabbing, and stabbing in handy moving picture format.
I do very much like the look of that magical gadget used to slip between past and present in one mission. That’s a lovely effect, that. And Dishonored’s combination of magic and hardware is always pleasant. He’s a handy one with a screwdriver, that Outsider. Pretty good at tattoos too. Probably gets sick of people trying to tap his skills “as a favour for a friend.” In Dishonored 3, he’ll start his own undersea city to escape people who can’t be arsed to change their own lightbulbs or ink their own wristchains.
Dishonored 2 is due out on November 11th, developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks.
