Dishonored: Death of the Outsider

Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Our cup runneth over with new Dishonored games. There were a solid 4 years betwixt Dishonored (2012) and Dishonored 2 (2016), so it’s a bit of a surprise that we are seeing another standalone Dishonored game so soon after 2’s release late last year.

The Death of the Outsider (due out September 15th) is an intriguing title and motivation for this next game. The Outsider, demi-god and avatar of the Void, has been enabling denizens of the Empire of the Isles and the Panyssian continent for thousands of years. He appears as a young man, with an almost bored affect and though not entirely Loki-ish his primary motivation for granting his arcane boons appears to be the meer curiosity about what those gifted may do with their powers. Though powerful, he is at odds with the established church of Dishonored’s world (though he seeks no worship, only the pursuit if his interest), and those in his strange favor are treated as outcasts and heretics.

This Dishonored chapter sees the conflicted assassins Daud (the infamous “Knife of Dunwall) and Billie Lurk (his previously estranged second-in-command) reunited. Both owe much of their success as notorious assassins to the power the Outsider gifted Daud. Now that Billie has found Daud both seem motivated to redeem their corrupted lives by removing the agent of chaos that enabled them.

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider will be available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
Somewhere between DLC and a full-titlein length, it will be priced around the $29.99 rage when it launches September 15th 2017.
