Dishonored 2 got new footage and details at Bethesda’s E3 2016 press conference thanks to Arkane Studios. The developer revealed an in-depth preview and talked us through some of the new abilities and areas we’ll be able to visit in the Dishonored universe.
The new Dishonored footage featured many new details but some features truly make Dishonored 2 gameplay amazing and exciting.
Pull and Kill
Emily Kaldwin is playable this time around and one of her newly revealed abilities is Pull and Kill. She pulls her enemies closer using a mystical power and knife them for a stealth kill. As you know stealth is a major part of this franchise.
Looking at the gameplay we can safely say that there is lots of emphasis on verticality and parkour. This provides an excellent flexibility when planning your attacks. Aerial attacks will pay a major role this time around.
Compared to Dishonored 1, the sequel has much more fluid combat, especially, in the melee attacks department. Animations are smooth!
During certain missions you can take sides with one or two factions. You can use this to your advantage to create different gameplay opportunities in Dishonored 2. Of course, you can be neutral and find your own way. New Dishonored allows you to customize your own experience right from the get go. Early impressions of the game are very positive.
Posses Your Enemies
Dishonored 2 gameplay revealed a new ability of Emily Kaldwin, she is able to summon an entity that can posses enemies. You should be able to kill them or use them to create distractions that would allow you sneak past enemies.
More Dishonored 2 gameplay should arrive in the coming months with more details. E3 2016 demo was pretty neat and the game not only looks impressive gameplay wise, its graphical prowess is something to appreciate.
Dishonored 2 will release on November 11 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
