Strap in, because Bethesda had a lot to say about Dishonored 2 during their E3 Press Conference last night.
Dishonored 2 will be available on November 11 for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. And because it’s less than five months away, Co-Creative Director Harvey Smith had a lot to say about it. That includes stopping by Bethesda.net to offer up plenty of details about the game’s coastal setting:
While Dishonored 2 begins and ends in Dunwall – the bleak industrial city of the first game – most of the action takes place in Karnaca, often referred to as the Jewel of the South. The capital of Serkonos – which is the southernmost island in the Empire – Karnaca is a dazzling Mediterranean-inspired metropolis with distinctly different culture and style.
Players will be able to experience the story of Dishonored 2 as either Corvo Attano (Stephen Russell) or the grownup Emily Kaldwin (Erica Luttrell). But both characters will meet a wide range of allies and enemies including Vincent D’Onofrio (Luca Abele, Duke of Serkonis), Rosario Dawson (Meagan Foster, Captain of the Dreadful Wale), Jamie Hector (Vice Overseer Liam Byrne), Pedro Pascal (Paolo, leader of the Howler gang), Sam Rockwell (Mortimer Ramsey of the Dunwall City Watch), and Robin Lord Taylor (The Outsider).
Bethesda also confirmed that Corvo and Emily will learn several new abilities, and fight their way through Themed Missions such as the time-bending “A Crack in the Slab” and the shifting walls and floors of “The Clockwork Mansion” (which was originally seen in the E3 2015 trailer).
For a more in-depth look at Dishonored 2, I recommend watching the 20-minute gameplay demo, which is available after the break.
