E3 2015: ‘Dishonored 2’ Cinematic Trailer and Dual Protagonists Revealed

By | 1 year ago 

Dishonored 2 was rumored to make an appearance at E3 last year, but unfortunately for fans of the stealth action franchise, the game never arrived. It’s been a few years since the first installment in the Arkane Studios developed first-person game and consumers are anxious to see it make the leap to the current console gen. From the looks of things, those fans won’t have to wait too much longer to get their hands on Dishonored 2.

Many fans predicted that Dishonored 2 would appear at E3 2015 and after Saturday evening’s accidental leak, the Bethesda mic drop announcement was all but spoiled. As excepted, Bethesda used E3 as an opportunity to showcase the new iteration of Doom, Fallout 4, and Dishonored 2.

In a big change from the original stealth-action game, players in Dishonored 2 will choose between two protagonists. Players decide whether they want to begin their adventure as Corvo Attano or Emily Kaldwin. The cinematic trailer, embedded above, puts Emily Kaldwin in the spotlight.

The new installment in the stealth action franchise takes gamers to the coastal city of Karnaca, where they will begin interacting with the world and make decisions that shape the environment around them. The Arkane Studios team didn’t offer many more details about the game’s mechanics, but it looks like it will fall right in with the first installment’s style.

The team did confirm that each assassin has their own unique set of powers, weapons, and tools. These differences should make playing through the game with each character a unique experience and will hopefully offer some additional replayability. Hopefully, more details about the upcoming sequel will be available in the near future.

What do you think of Bethesda’s plans for Dishonored 2? Was this reveal the highlight of the Bethesda presentation for you? Let us know in the comments.
