Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

1 month ago

Arkane hint vaguely at the studio’s future, while Dishonored is “resting for now”

While none of their games have been the industry-shaking hits I would have loved them to be, Dishonored and Prey developers Arkane have put the immersive sim genre back on the map. At QuakeCon last week, agents for the ever-sneaky VG247 managed to pin down Ricardo Bare, lead designer at Arkane. Despite the studio being famously evasive ever since that whole Press Sneak Fuck incident,…

Feature: Shoot the real me!

We asked a lot of people: what would you do to a clone of yourself?

Over the past several weeks I have sent a lot of interesting people who work in the games industry an email containing the following scenario: "You enter a room. The door locks behind you. From a door opposite another you enters. This other you is a perfectly identical clone, created in the exact instant you entered the room, but as every second ticks by they…

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider review

Me: someone who believes that gothbro apparent trickster god The Outsider is the worst thing that ever happened to the Dishonored games, and thus positively relishes the chance to kill the blighter. Also me: someone who is absolutely determined to play Dishonored games without causing even a single fatality. Hmm. Standalone expansion Dishonored: Death Of The Outsider [official site] makes life pretty tricky for me,…

Evasion of the bodysnatcher in Dishonored: Death Of The Outsider

Here you will find the curious case of the politician who broke his neck then went for a nice walk as if nothing had happened. I'll be along early next week with full thoughts in our Dishonored: Death Of The Outsider review [official site], but seeing as it's out right now I want to bend your ear about the most interesting of its new sneak-o-magicky…

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider offers deicide from 15 Sept

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…

Dishonored’s new expansion is about killing the Outsider

I haven't yet got round to playing Dishonored 2 despite loving the first, so it seems awfully rude of Bethesda and Arkane to announce Dishonored: Death of the Outsider [official site]. It's a standalone expansion about trying to assassinate The Outsider, the magical goth who gifts powers to the protagonists in Dishonored games and prattles in an irritating way. Watch a cinematic trailer and find…
