Arkane’s just dropped a new trailer for standalone adventure Dishonored: Death of the Outsider. It’s all about the titular Outsider, that weird fella’ who’s obsessed with sucking Corvo and Emily into alternate dimensions. He’s a god, as it turns out, but even gods aren’t immortal.
Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is set a few months after the events of Dishonored 2. Suffice to say if you haven’t finished that yet, and you want to give this a go, then you’ll probably want to get that done first.
If you’re still with us, welcome to the Dishonored 2 spoilers club. An uneasy alliance is just about keeping the Empire together following the rescue of Emily Kaldwin / Corvo Attano (depending on your character choice), but despite Delilah’s death, the root cause of the problem, the Outsider, is still a problem.
For the first time in the series, players will step into the shoes of Billie Lurk, the ship’s captain from Dishonored 2 and the student of Daub, the assassin of Empress Jessamine Kaldwin. Daub’s being voiced by none other than Michael Madsen, Mr Blonde himself. They’re reunited for one final mission - to kill a god. Billie will have to infiltrate underground fight clubs, black magic cults and take part in a bank heist, a must for any stealth game.
Dishonored: Death of the Outside is out on September 15th and will be a budget-priced $30 release for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It looks as if Bethesda wants a slice of Hellblade’s AAA indie pie.
