Yesterday’s Bethesda’s E3 conference had a bunch of announcements that can be found here. The one I want to focus on though is Dishonored 2: Death of The Outsider.
I’m not normally a fan of downloadable content as they normally add little to nothing to the base game and are just a simple cash grab. The DLC for the Dishonored series are different. While the main games normally focus on Corvo and his quest to save the empire, the side stories instead focus on Daud, played by Michael Madsen.
As is normally the case with any good story, the character we find ourselves rooting for isn’t always the hero. Often times an old antagonist turned protagonist is where development finds itself.
That is what makes Dishonored DLC so great. They’re all about Daud!
The story so far
Some spoilers for Dishonored 1 and 2 below.
Based off the trailer we know we’re probably going to be given the choice of playing as either Daud or Billie Lurk while getting the chance to explore their shared past.
Oh and we also have as our target The Outsider.
A lot of people seemed disappointed by the title of the DLC and called out the impossibility of the task. We need to keep in mind that he was shown to be vulnerable in 2 when Delilah took over the void. A repeat by the assassin Daud and his protégé Billie shouldn’t be too farfetched.
In any case, this is probably the only DLC I’ll probably ever be excited for. I can’t wait for the extra lore.
