This November fans of the stealth genre will take control of Corvo or Emily to take back what is rightfully theirs in highly anticipated game, Dishonored 2. While the release of the game is almost two months away, Arkane Studios is revealing new info about the game. This time they have detailed the Dishonored 2 ability trees for both Corvo and Emily.

Speaking with Gamereactor, co-creative director at Arkane Studios discussed the Dishonored 2 ability trees, and how the game is an odd ball. He further said that supernatural abilities are the key to the game, and while Corvo’s abilities are back the difference is the detailed trees under each of his powers.

Dishonored is a game about an assassin where you don’t have to kill anyone and it’s a bit of an oddball – there’s stealth, there’s combat. The supernatural powers are really key. Corvo’s powers from the first game are back […] the difference is this time we’ve added detailed trees under each of his powers. There are many different ways, generally five, sometimes six, ways to upgrade the power. With Devouring Swarm you can be the guy to summon two swarms or you can have larger swarms or you can have swarms follow you […] and then on top of that you can combine the powers.

He added that almost all abilities for Emily are new and can be upgraded with tress under them just like how Corvo’s abilities are upgraded.

So a lot of Emily’s powers are new and they can be upgraded with trees under them the same way that Corvo’s powers can, and the two characters share enhancements, the paths of powers we have, and we’ve added to the enhancements as well.

He further added that both Emily and Corvo can craft bone charms, and there are almost 40,000 combinations of bone charms and the devs themselves have not yet fully checked out all the combinations.

Both characters can now craft bone charms now as well so there’s something like 400,000 combinations of bone charms. We haven’t even looked at all the combinations, it’s a procedural thing.

Dishonored 2 is schedule to release on November 11, 2016 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
