Following its unintended reveal during a livestream, Bethesda has now officially announced Dishonored 2 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game is being developed by Arkane Studios and will be released in Spring 2016.
Dishonored 2 will allow players to play as Corvo, the protagonist of the original game, or Emily Kaldwin, the rightful heir to the throne of the Isles. Each character will have its own unique set of supernatural abilities, weapons and unusual gadgets.
"Define your own playstyle by blending immersive first-person action, assassination, stealth, mobility and the game's brutal combat system," said Bethesda. "Combine the tools at your disposal to creatively eliminate your enemies whether you choose to pursue them unseen or ruthlessly attack head on with weapons drawn. Show no mercy and leave chaos in your wake or find a more subtle way to eliminate your targets. More than ever the choices you make will determine the outcome of each mission, and ultimately the game."
"Dishonored 2 is set 15 years after the Lord Regent has been vanquished and the dreaded Rat Plague has passed into history. An otherworldly usurper has seized the throne from Empress Emily Kaldwin, leaving the fate of the Isles hanging in the balance. As either Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano, travel beyond the legendary streets of Dunwall to Karnaca "“ a once-dazzling coastal city that holds the key to restoring Emily to power. Armed with the mark of the Outsider and powerful new supernatural abilities, hunt down your enemies and forever alter the fate of the Empire."
