Now Playing: Dishonored 2 - Gamescom 2016 Gameplay Trailer

Dishonored 2 is all about player choice, and the newest trailer for the game shows that one of those choices is to be very violent. Publisher Bethesda released a gameplay video for Dishonored 2 that demonstrates how you can use your abilities to literally rip enemies apart.

The gory and brutal trailer shows two scenes. In the first, the player stealthily approaches a few guards and turns into a shadowy creature that crawls close to the ground. Using this ability, the player then grabs a guard and rips its legs off. In the next scene, the player wields guns and knives to stab and dismantle one of the robotic enemies in the game, showing off traversal and mobility in combat. You can watch the full video in the embed above.

Dishonored 2 brings a host of changes to the Dishonored series. Chief among these is that you'll now have the choice to play as either the first game's protagonist, Corvo, or his daughter and Empress of the game's world, Emily Kaldwin. Each will have very different abilities--you can see some of Emily's in the trailer.

We recently had a chance to sit down with Dishonored 2's creative director, Harvey Smith, and talk about the new features coming to the game. You can read our full interview here, where Smith discusses the differences between Corvo and Emily and how their assassin abilities will work.

Dishonored 2 launches on November 11 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Playing Emily for a diff experience because I played corvo in the first. I might play him on a second play though.

I preordered this and got def edition for free. I thought it was amazing. I really enjoyed it. I'm more of a high chaos guy no matter how much I want the best ending.

So there's really no incentive at all to play as Corvo. He still has the same abilities as in the predecessor.

@gamefreak215jd: Yeah, same abilities, only they can be upgraded completely differently.

+ many new weapons, abilities and gadgets.

There is all the reason to play corvo.

In fact you can play Emily without powers, Emily with powers and Corvo and choose to play high or low chaos.

There are way more variables than in the previous game.

They need to start making trailers using mouse & keyboard controls. The camera movements in this trailer are mechanical and slow, which isn't representative of the PC version at all.

@Tiwill44: They don't want to make broken trailers. Haven't you noticed all the broken PC games lately???

@Pelezinho777: Every level is now like the lady boyle mission in that it is entirely unique from every other mission.

Yup, sounds like a worse game than Dishonored for really realz

I just hope the end game is less about if you kill there's high chaos and if you don't there;s less chaos....that really wasn't the best way to go cus it basically said go this exact way only if you want the true ending.....

@darthrevenx: People now have different levels of moral. If you kill somebody who is a jerk, or if you kill a nice guy, that will have different outcome on your chaos meter.

@darthrevenx: In the original Dishonored if you only killed the targets/a low amount of enemies then you could still get the low chaos ending.
