Have a look at some gameplay for Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, which takes place after the events of Dishonored 2. Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is out next month, and is a standalone expansion to Dishonored 2.
OK Arkane (Bethesda?), you lost me there. Is this another Dishonored, and if not, what’s the point of it being standalone? Was there ever anyone complaining about the first’s DLC not being standalone? Or is there something else at play, something perhaps related to the unmitigated technical disaster that Dishonored 2 was? But that’s not even the biggest problem I have with this.
It brings players back to the Empire of the Isles, allowing them to take on the role of Billie Lurk. She has her own set of supernatural abilities, weapons and gear, making her the ultimate assassin.
That may all be well and great as far as innovation attempts go, but it’s just not Dishonored! Arkane is pushing the series farther and farther from where I personally see its very foundation; the steampunk-but-not-quite, the supernatural-but-not-quite. The original was a superhero story, but, yeah, you guessed it, not quite. This one just seems like fuck it, let’s just go all-out on the fantasy crap. I hope I’m wrong.
