Those who preorder Dishonored 2 will be able to play the game one day ahead of its worldwide release, Bethesda announced today. The publisher also released a new gameplay trailer.
The trailer features a mission we first saw during a concept trailer at Bethesda’s E3 2015 conference. Protagonist Emily Kaldwin infiltrates the Clockwork Mansion, a rich estate resplendent in gilded decor and mechanical, moving walls. Emily’s target, Grand Inventor Kirin Jindosh, is described as Kurnow’s most distinguished “clever bastard.” Jindosh also made his debut at last year’s E3.
According to Jindosh’s taunts, Emily has come to both eliminate Jindosh and retrieve Anton Sokolov, who appeared in the first Dishonored. The trailer proceeds to show Emily taking out Jindosh’s robotic guards through the use of her pistol, her “far reach” ability (which pulls Emily across a distance in the blink of an eye), and what look like spring-razor traps (also from the previous game).
After reaching Jindosh and neutralizing his guard, Emily chooses to eliminate her target non-lethally by scrambling his brain through some electroshock therapy. This lethal vs. non-lethal option of eliminating targets is another returning element from Dishonored 1; one of the many systems Arkane Studios has created to focus on player agency.
Dishonored 2 comes to PS4, Xbox One and PC on November 11 — unless, of course, you preorder the game and get it one day early. If November 10 isn’t early enough, you can try out the game as early as Monday at one of Bethesda’s public Dishonored 2 demo events.
