E3 2015: Dishonored 2 Announced Featuring Female Lead

Dishonored 2 logo

Back in 2012, Dishonored was released to mostly favourable reviews. While I wasn’t convinced by the game (I am admittedly rubbish at stealth titles and I thought that the controls were a bit fiddly), it won a whole heap of awards including Best Action Adventure Game at the 2012 Spike Video Game Awards and it also exceeded publisher Bethesda’s sales expectations.

As a result, just weeks after the game’s release, Bethesda revealed that they would be turning the IP into a franchise. Rumours have been swirling ever since, about when we’d see Dishonored 2, but we won’t have to wait any longer as the first Dishonored 2 trailer and details were revealed during Bethesda’s E3 2015 press conference last night.

E3 Dishonored Gameplay Trailer Now Live

Yes, I know that it’s been a month since E3 (as well as the subsequent release of the E3 Dishonored gameplay trailer) but in my defence, it has taken me that long to get through the awesomeness that is the Dishonored gameplay footage that Bethesda offered up at the convention (which, is a valid excuse if there ever was one).

If you haven’t seen it, then after your first viewing (of many, no doubt) you’ll have to take a while to get through it too – don’t worry if the entire 3 and a half minute trailer gets a bit confusing, the E3 Dishonored gameplay trailer can be summarised with the following – singing choir children are never not creepy and the plague will forever be the grossest thing to ever happen to society. The amount of claret on show would put Sweeney Todd to shame. Also, something about rats.

Now that you have the general gist of Dishonored, scroll below to watch the gameplay footage so that you too can be impressed/baffled/generally awestruck by Bethesda’s upcoming assassin sandbox title.

Four Ways That Dishonored Will Be Like Assassin’s Creed (And Why That’s a Good Thing)

DISCLAIMER : The author is looking forward to both Assassin’s Creed 3 and Dishonored, both of them stand the chance of being incredible. This post just takes a look a how Dishonored will best certain aspects of what we’ve seen AC do before and is not meant to hate on either upcoming titles.

One is a slice of globe-trotting, stab and stealth action where freedom and a fight against the power-hungry Templars take the lead, whilst the other is based around a dystopian Industrial-era society that has you using supernatural powers as you battle for your innocence against the corrupted leader(s) who framed you for a crime you didn’t commit.

Although they include a much different range of methods to get to their end-goal of putting the warped members of the aristocracy in their places, both are centred around the idea that they must kill for what is right.

These games? Dishonored and Assassin’s Creed.

As the two assassin genre supertitles go head to head later this year (the latter in the form of Assassin’s Creed 3), it’s inevitable that comparisons between them are going to be drawn. But how deep do the similarities go? That’s what we’re here to find out.

Now I’m not saying that Bethesda are a big bunch of meanies, but what I will say is that they are unapologetically deviant and have a penchant for torturing poor gamers.

Okay, so what I’m saying is is that Bethesda really are a big bunch of meanies.

Why else would they play with us like this, releasing a multitude of new Dishonored screenshots, each one more intriguing than the last, leaving us hungrier for more?

These latest images from their supernatural assassin outing will likely leave you whimpering in a crumpled heap, only to be revived by watching this epic CGI Dishonored trailer again. But in any case, Dishonored is my vote for ‘most likely to murder the entire gaming population by being so damn attractive’.

When it comes to the Dishonored, the plot and premise alone is enough to have me preaching this game’s impressiveness from the treetops.

Bethesda want to have you join me in singing its praise and so have release an impressive CGI trailer of the game that yes, while completely animated and not including gameplay, is the perfect indication of the throat slashing and rooftop running that we’ll all be privy to when the supernatural assassin gameplay of Dishonored hits shelves later this year.

It’s gorgeous, it’s gruesome and it will most definitely leave you speechless – the new Dishonored trailer is here.

Hidden Gems of the Gaming World : Dishonored

Dishonored Logo

Some may accuse Bethesda of knowing about the tremendously game-breaking lag that plagued Skyrim before the game was released. Some may even accuse Bethesda of producing games that don’t live up to a level anywhere near as good as suggested. But the one thing that Bethesda are never accused of is developing, or, in this case – publishing – titles that lack creativity.

Bethesda published and Arkane Studios developed, Dishonored is a first person actioner that is every bit as quirky and intriguing as Lady Gaga’s meat dress. Both items are something you’ll want to get your teeth into.

With a dystopian Victorian (well, Industrial Era) setting and a trunk full of supernatural toys for you to get your gaming mitts on, Dishonored and its total uniqueness is what make this part-stealth, part shapeshift/invisibility/murderous tendency game our latest Hidden Gem of the Gaming World.
