Arkane has gone public with some of the various Dishonored 2 Death of the Outsider abilities that players will be able to use in their role as Billie Lurk, the main protagonist of the DLC and the protege of Daud, the assassin from the previous game who was responsible for killing the Empress.
Every Dishonored game has given out a number of new powers to go along with it, and even though it’s only a DLC, Death of the Outsider will be no exception. Considering you’re going to be attempting to kill the closest thing the setting has to a god, you’re going to need to switch things up a lot before you can do anything to him.
To start with, we have the Void Strike. This ability gives Billie the power to charge up void energy in a sword strike and blast it at enemies in order to knock them backwards to help get you some breathing room.
Every Dishonored protagonist has a different ability to allow them to move quickly and unseen, and Billie’s ability is no exception. The second of the Dishonored 2 Death of the Outsider abilities is called Displace, and allows the player to leave a marker somewhere in the world and be able to snap back to it. For instance, before entering a building, you can put it down and then infiltrate, and if you’re discovered you can warp back out with the people inside none the wiser.
However, interestingly, Billie Lurk herself isn’t marked like Corvo, Emily, and Daud are. Instead, she is in possession of a number of artifacts that allow her to use abilities herself, such as her sword, which was originally used to create the current Outsider. Other devices include a pre-Outsider artifact in her eye, and a talisman.
All of these different powers will be connected to different Dishonored 2 Death of the Outsider abilities, and you’ll be able to use all of them when the DLC comes out on September 15.
