Dishonored 2 is available for all to play
Dishonored was a rather interesting new IP launched back in 2012. With both an interesting world, and a fun suite of abilities to play with, it gathered a stable fanbase. Now, finally, its sequel, Dishonored 2, has been released. Set fifteen years after the events of the first game, it tracks Corvo and his daughter Emily as they are forced to flee for their lives. A coup has taken over their home, and they will have to take back what what is theirs.
Unlike the previous game, there are two playable characters in Dishonored 2. Emily and Corvo, each with their own unique abilities. Emily has moves that are more in line with being aggressive and felling enemies, while Corvo is more suited for sneaking about. This, combined with the High/Low Chaos mechanic, offers a great deal of replay value.
There are a lot of high expectations for Dishonored 2. It is, however, not without its concerns. Due to the recent review copy policy implemented by Bethesda, very few reviews are up. What is more, the PC port is proving to be very poorly optimized, to the point were Bethesda had released a list of workarounds. More cautious fans of the series may feel the need to wait before they buy the game. For both more reviews, and for a patch for the PC port.
