Dishonored 2 is a direct continuation of the first part. Everything remains in the same style: the world, the gameplay, and the atmosphere. The main difference of the sequel is that now gamers are allowed to choose one of two characters. The first is Emily, the daughter of the Empress already familiar to us. At the moment, her abilities such as “Pulling up” are known, thanks to which a girl can attract herself to any objects and people from a great distance, and “Tread of the Shadow”, which makes her able to turn into a shadow and hide in the walls. In addition, the girl can also create bone amulets, the number of combinations of which equals 400 thousand. And if Emily seems more like an easy and dexterous hero, then Corvo is less fast, but much cooler. His skills will undergo only partial changes, but otherwise the protagonist of the previous part will have all the same skills.
It is worth noting immediately that you can choose a character only at the beginning of the passage, thereafter no change is provided. The missions for both are the same, only the sensations from the gameplay and the style of passing, the available weapons and equipment differ. For example, Corvo, already a rather old man, who finally returns home after a long time. And Emily is a young, 25-year-old Empress girl, whose main life was mainly on the run. Heroes are united only by a total loss, otherwise their views on the world are different.
In the last part of Dishonored, the atmosphere was like a mixture of cyberpunk and Victorian England. But, despite the fact that in the sequel, the scene of action is a colorful and sunny city, the developers swear that they will keep the same style. As for the ways of passing – one of the main highlights of the game – then everything is normal. Pass the levels in dozens of different options, kill the enemies or pass by – the decision depends only on you.
Also, craftsmen from Arcane Studios promise to improve artificial intelligence. From now on, the guards will truly look for players. If earlier gamers could easily circle around any enemies and eliminate them individually, now everything is different. Not only did the guards begin to form groups, but now they will search the entire territory and protect each other.
Some features: Corvo will gain a voice, an asymmetric and branched tree of skills, enhanced skills with the help of runes, an improved mask for Corvo, and more.
The plot unfolds in the capital of Serkonos, the city of Karnak. Emily’s life turns abruptly after her mother, Empress Jessimine, is killed. For a long fifteen years Corvo takes care of her and teaches the skills of the killer. Now the girl wants to avenge the mother and deal with the adversaries.
