I know how much you like slitting throats, so I got this Dishonored 2 [official site] launch trailer for you. It’s got a lot of your stabby bloodshed in it, but also some other powers available to the discerning murderer, including ‘annoying flies’, the ‘mini warp’ and ‘becoming a living avatar of chaos’. It’s nothing we haven’t seen before but there’s some bits of plot thrown in for good measure. Which is good because plot is your second favourite thing after slitting throats.
It’s teetering on the brink of its Friday 11 release, and we have joined the cabal of journalists fighting to get our thoughts to you in the form of clever words. Of course, this was made a little harder by Bethesda’s continuing hostility to consumers (we didn’t get a review copy until today) but we promise we’ll be as johnny-on-the-spot about it as possible. Picture us reviewing it in a furious montage as an 80s power ballad plays.
