Have you played the first Dishonored game? If you haven’t, you should. Aside from this story having light spoilers, it is a terrific game. You won’t have trouble finding it on Xbox One, Xbox 360, Steam, Playstation 4 or the Playstation 3. If you liked Thief or Deus Ex, it’ll be worth your time.
For everyone else, Bethesda has started to fill us in on the differences between the main protagonists of Dishonored 2. Corvo is a harsh grizzled assassin that has since become Spymaster and Royal Protector to his daughter, and empress. Emily on the other hand has been raised in a moneyed life, sheltered and protected. Corvo has taken the time to train his daughter Emily out of fear for the day her enemies would come for her. And that, they did.
While Corvo and his abilities have been enhanced from the previous game, Emily is no longer just a little girl. Now playable, her powers and weapons have become a reflection of her as an empress. Her crossbow, pistol, and blade, all feed into her sense of style. All of which designed to be as deadly as they are fashionable. Emily’s powers are all crowd control, a talent every ruler needs.
A new edition to the dishonored series is Corvo’s voice. Originally a silent protagonist, he is now being voiced by Stephen Russell of Thief. Yes, they got the voice of Garrett to do the voice of Corvo, who is inspired by Garrett of the old thief series. Emily will be voiced by Erica Luttrell. They tackle the same missions, but have wildly different feelings about them. For example: Most of Dishonored 2 takes place in Corvo’s home town of Karnaca, he will have different feelings about the area than Emily who is essentially fleeing for her life.
Dishonored 2 will be out for the Xbox One, PC and Playstation 4 on November 11
