Dishonored: Death of the Outsider offers deicide from 15 Sept

Billie Lurk returns!

As you might know Dishonored 2 is welcoming a new standalone adventure expansiony thing called Dishonored: Death of the Outsider [official site]. Well, I say "welcoming". I don't remember anything in Dishonored ever being welcoming, more horrific and with the capacity to go chaotically and mass-murderingly wrong. What I'm trying to say is there's a new thing involving Billie Lurk and Daud and the Outsider and now there's a trailer...

What happens every time I watch a video of the Outsider is I try to remember who he reminds me of. I think it's Mathew Horne crossed with Iwan Rheon who played Ramsay Bolton in Game of Thrones.

"After the events of Dishonored 2, things might finally seem calm for Billie Lurk and her former mentor Daud – but a new storm is brewing in the Empire of the Isles. In the first standalone adventure in the award-winning Dishonored series, Billie will play a key role in the bloody battle against the black-eyed bastard himself, the Outsider. A former killer-for-hire in search of redemption, Billie will take on one last job and pull off the ultimate assassination – and the Empire will never be the same again."

It sounds like a sort of variety show masquerading as a murder mission: "Investigate mysterious cults, infiltrate underground fight clubs, and even pull off a bank heist as you search for a way to do the impossible: kill a god."

The rest of the info is all about the usual diversity of playstyles, new supernatural abilities, weapons, gear and so on. I believe that diverse playstyles exist because Tom Francis keeps telling me about how he plays the game and he has no reason to lie. That said, I have never had a Dishonored experience which didn't devolve into just piling up bodies in a safe zone while gradually clearing a pathway to the next event. If they let an idiot like me kill a god the Dishonored universe is boned.

Death of the Outsider is out on 15 September, priced at £19.99/29,99€/$29.99.
