Dishonored 2’s Gameplay Demonstration Looks Absolutely Fantastic
While Arkane Studios’ Texas office announced yesterday a reimagined Prey game due in 2017, the main office in Lyon has been working on Dishonored 2 for a long time now.
The game was announced at Bethesda’s E3 2015 Showcase, but a few hours ago we finally got the chance to see the game in action during 2016’s Showcase and it’s looking great both for graphics and gameplay.
Take a look at the 12 minutes gameplay video grabbed from Eurogamer, alongside the official Dishonored 2 E3 2016 gameplay trailer. Bethesda also shared a few new screenshots that we’ve embedded below.
Dishonored 2 will launch for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 11 worldwide.
As fully voiced characters, Emily Kaldwin and Corvo Attano now bring their own perspectives and emotional responses to the world and story. Use each character’s set of powers, gadgets and uniquely-tuned weapons in creative ways as you explore the world – whether you fight your way through the city streets or sneak across the rooftops – and which enemies you decide to eliminate or spare.
Advanced bonecharm crafting and all-new upgrade trees allow you to customize your powers in vastly different ways. Become a living shadow to silently stalk your targets, link enemies so they share a common fate, or mesmerize your foes and dominate their minds. Choose from nearly infinite combinations of violence, nonlethal combat, powers and weapons to accomplish your objectives.
From the grimy, rat-infested streets of Dunwall to the lush, exotic coasts of a decaying Karnaca, immerse yourself in stylized locales created by Arkane’s premiere art and narrative teams. The world is a character in its own right, rich with story, architecture and eclectic characters. It is also punctuated by signature mission locations, such as the Dust District, ravaged by dust storms and warring factions, and a madman’s mansion made of shifting walls, deadly traps and clockwork soldiers.
Customize your gameplay options and difficulty settings for an even more tailored adventure. You can make the experience more challenging (or easier) by changing myriad parameters related to stealth, movement and combat.
The Void Engine
Dishonored 2 is beautifully brought to life with the new Void Engine, a leap forward in rendering technology, built from id Tech and highly-customized by Arkane Studios. Designed to support world-class art direction and take full advantage of the powerful hardware this generation has to offer, the Void Engine allows for significant advances to all game systems, including responsive stealth and combat Artificial Intelligence, lighting and graphical rendering, impressively dense urban environments, and story presentation.
