Dishonored 2 is something of an curiosity in a video diversion attention – a singular triple-A recover that garners mostly certain vicious reviews and struggles with sales during a same time. While a hilly PC launch is during slightest partially to censure for a unsatisfactory sales Dishonored 2 gifted during launch, a diversion has given been mostly softened on both computers and consoles, and Bethesda and Arkane Studios haven’t given adult on a pretension yet.
Dishonored 2: Death of a Outsider is slated for a recover after this year, and artistic executive Harvey Smith recently featured on a video expelled by Bethesda where he described a diversion as “definitely a standalone adventure” rather than DLC. According to Smith, Dishonored 2: Death of a Outsider will let players assume a purpose of fan-favorite Billie Lurk for a initial time ever, and a new calm is being designed to duty as both closure for longtime players of a array and a useful starting indicate for those meddlesome in perplexing a Dishonored diversion for a initial time. Here’s Smith describing a team’s proceed to Death of a Outsider:
“We adore it as something that if you’re unequivocally into Dishonored, we played Dishonored 1, Dishonored 2, a other DLC, we can go get it and play it and it unequivocally closes out a arc – this partial of the Dishonored story – associated to a domestic assassination of Jessica Kaldwin. On a other hand, if you’ve never played a Dishonored game, we can indeed go collect up Death of a Outsider and it can be your entrance indicate into a series; we don’t need to know anything from before.”
While it stays to be seen only how effective a diversion perplexing to tighten out an arc that has spanned mixed titles can be during introducing new fans to a universe of Dishonored as well, it would be a ideal change for Bethesda.

Dishonored 2: Death of a Outsider will positively lift a stakes of a array as well. With past games traffic mostly with domestic machinations and justice, Death of a Outsider will finally strew some some-more light on a abnormal elements of a series, with Lurk and coach Daud seeking to finish a existence of a god-like Outsider once and for all.
