Dishonored 2 to Receive New Game+ with Free Update

As of today, Bethesda has announced that Dishonored 2 will be receiving an extensive update. Namely, that players will now be able to get even more Dishonored in a NG+ mode, as well as being able to combine Emily and Corvo’s abilities into what probably results in a hellstorm of supernatural powers. Thanks, Outsider.

If you’ve ever wanted to make higher-powered characters, now’s your chance. If you’ve wanted to play Emily Kaldwin with Possession or Devouring Swarm, or Corvo Attano with Domino, now you can. We’ve been having fun with it here at Arkane Studios, and we hope you will too. – Harvey Smith

When booting up a NG+ players will now have all abilities, runes and bonecharms carry over. Player’s will be able to reassign everything that carries over as they see fit, allowing for a powerful start out the gate. Karnaca is a dangerous place and having even more in the arsenal can only be a good thing.

This will be the first of two free updates. This first Dishonored update is available in beta now on PC. Releasing on Monday, December 19, for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Update two is set to arrive in January, no date has been specified. The second update will feature a mission select option, and allow players to tweak their games even more allowing for a fully tailored experience for anyone’s style of play.
