Dishonored gets triple DLC announcement

October 25, 2012, Author: Matt Parker

A thank you to the people at Bethesda who have managed to save everyone time and energy by announcing not one, but three pieces of planned DLC for Arkane Studio’s Dishonored.

Whilst there’s still information to be released on some of this content, we’ll let you know what we’ve been told.

Should we be excited? Yes and no, as there’s some bits that we’re interested to see and other bits we can just do without. Firstly we have an ‘Assault Course’ coming out, to test our teleportation and rat horde summoning skills. Then there’s some story DLC, which is greatly appreciated. Thirdly, the mystery DLC. What is it? No one knows. Well, we kind of know that it’s story focused too.

The ‘Assault Course’ DLC is called Dunwall City Trials. It’ll contain 10 challenges for you to overcome, ranging from courses to navigate and arenas to battle in. Think along the lines of Batman: Arkham City’s challenge pack DLC and you’ll have a good idea of what to expect. This doesn’t entirely fill me with joy as I have to say that Dishonored’s strongest points weren’t its combat or its movement. What I’m most anxious to get is a further glimpse into the world that was created and learn some new information about its inhabitants.

As if by magic, that’s exactly what else has been announced! It’s almost like I planned this out. The second piece that’s been confirmed centers around Daud, the leader of the assassin group known as ‘The Whalers’. You’ll get your hands on Daud’s own unique weapons and powers through this story driven DLC which promises to have your actions affect the conclusion.

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

The third piece of content has no information linked to it at the moment, other than the suggestion that it’ll also be story focused. Pricing and a rough date have been confirmed for Dunwall City Trials – costing £3.99 / 400 MS Points and being released in December. The two other pieces are to be priced at a later date aiming to come out in 2013.

I’m looking forward to further adventures in Dishonored. Our review should tell you why and you should tell us why you are, or aren’t, excited in our forums.
