More Screens and Gameplay From Dishonored 2's Beautiful Locations

By Kelly Packard, 2 months ago
While Gamescom-goers get to enjoy a rather lengthy Dishonored 2 gameplay demo at the event, we're all stuck at our daily grinds, whether it be work or home or school. While it's not quite as good, Bethesda hasn't forgotten about us completely, having released a new gameplay video showing some of the highlights from the demo as well as screenshots from more of the game's gorgeous locations.

While the past gameplay video featured Corvo Attano, Dishonored's original assassin and one of two playable characters in Dishonored 2, in the Gamescom demo players once again stepped into the (bloody, I imagine) shoes of Empress Emily Kaldwin.

The demo was set in the Clockwork Mansion, which is a bit of a fun-house or perhaps something like Harry Potter's Hogwarts. Pressing switches and triggers will cause walls and floors to move and different pathways to appear. Keen explorers will also find passage through the mansion's walls and ceilings. The demo begins outside the mansion, where Emily stealthily uses her Shadow Walk ability to pass by the guards, dismembering several of them along the way. In the mansion there are tricks and traps as well as the owner's army of Clockwork Soldiers, machines defending the mansion from unwanted intruders like Emily.

Gamescom attendees also got a peek at another level, called the Royal Conservatory, where Emily squared off against a different group of enemies simply called Witches. Unfortunately, none of that was included in the video. For those of you familiar with the first game, these are the same Witches that are centered upon in the original Dishonored's "Brigmore Witches" DLC.

That's all we have now for Dishonored 2. If it's not enough, you'll just have to try the game for yourself when it releases on November 11th.
