Bethesda and Arkane Studios reveal new Dishonored: Death of the Outsider gameplay. The latest trailer for the standalone title features female protagonist Billie Lurk taking down enemies with ease, using powers and melee attacks to make light work of her foes.
Dishonored: Death of the Outsider was announced at E3 2017 and will reveal more about the fan favourite character from Dishonored 2.
New Dishonored: Death of the Outsider Gameplay Trailer Revealed
In the latest Dishonored: Death of the Outsider gameplay video, protagonist Billie Lurk (also known as Meagan Foster) gets her old mentor Daud out of a tight spot. Billie owes a lot to the ‘Knife of Dunwall’ and so she’s willing to help him on one final job – killing The Outsider.
The Outsider is “responsible for it all,” explains Daud, including the cults that are devoted to the shadowy figure and the black magic that they commit in his honour. Billie has to take him out once and for all and by the looks of things, she will be able to do that in spectacularly, bloody fashion.
Although Bethesda and Arkane Studios have yet to fully detail all of Billie’s powers, the trailer does showcase a lot of what she can do. For example, one ability allows her to slam an enemy into a wall like she’s dragging them through the air with invisible pincers, while another sees her fling a man off a ledge like it’s nothing.
And then there are the good, old-fashioned melee attacks. The player character can be seen slicing throats, pulling herself towards enemies before sticking a knife in their chests and ripping stony, supernatural foes to pieces too. It’s all incredibly grim stuff but looks like it could be a bloody good time.
And even if the new gameplay footage is just a small taste of what to expect when it launches next month, fans are positively chomping at the bit to play it themselves. If the DLC is a success, could Bethesda and Arkane create another game based on the bisexual female lead? All the focus is on the first Billie Lurk-focused game for now, but if Death of the Outsider is as good as it looks, many will be asking that same question.
Dishonored: Death of the Outsider will released on September 15 on Windows PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
