New Dishonored challenge maps, more DLC in 2013
Those of you that have already managed to get through Dishonored will be pleased to know that there will be DLC on its way in 2013. This will give gamers the incentive to continue improving their skills in time for the upcoming add-on content, which is will be made available for the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
We understand that three add-on’s have been planned at the moment with the second and third expected in the new year, and each will have story-driven campaigns, although we have no price on that yet. Highlighting the Dunwall City Trials, Bethesda Blog mention that this coming sometime in December and will be accessible for $4.99 or 400 Microsoft Points. With 10 challenge maps, players will get the opportunity to monitor their combat, stealth and mobility skills, as well as entering the arena against hordes of baddies, drop assassinations and a time trials.
Apparently, the second DLC will be centered on Daud, the head of a supernatural gang of assassins known as ‘The Whalers,’ and the emphasis is put on your choices being able to affect your destiny. In our most recently related post we spoke about the reception Dishonored has had, and that when a decent new IP arrives there will always be questions about a sequel. Many gamers will feel it is too early to talk about this, but we can see how both the developers and fans have thought about Dishonored 2.
Gamers who have enjoyed their experience with this newly released title may have ideas on what the would like to see in a Dishonored sequel, considering it has no co-op, there is potential to create another with added improvements made to the story. Designer Harvey Smith gives us the impression that this is a title they can build upon and understands how fans may call for a sequel, but there has been no confirmation of this from him, although we bet he’s been thinking about it.
