New Dishonored 2 Trailer Puts Corvo and His Powers Into the Spotlight

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

8 Comments

Last week, we got a trailer that showcased Dishonored 2's new protagonist Emily, and now Bethesda has released one that focuses on Corvo and his familiar abilities.

"We just had to be Corvo again because we're so nostalgic about the character," director Harvey Smith said. "First of all, we really wanted to see what Corvo felt like with a voice. In Dishonored 2, it's 15 years after the Rat Plague and Corvo's wondering how long can I protect my daughter. He's seen a lot and is still facing these crazy threats to the throne and to the empire.

"Corvo is like a man reflecting on the winter of his life. He's both the badass supernatural assassin that we wanted him to be, and he's very thoughtful."

Smith and other developers on Dishonored 2 continue the video by talking about Corvo's native land and powers, including enhanced Rat Swarm and Possession abilities. You can see them demonstrated in the video at the top of this article.

You can play Dishonored 2 a day early by preordering the game, which releases November 11 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In addition to full-on assassination, you'll be able to play through Dishonored 2 without killing anyone and no supernatural powers.

Another classic "I've seen some sh*t" gruff voice for our lead character! It looks so good though. I'm loving the double main character thing with Corvo and Emily. It's going to make second play throughs so much fun.

I love what the last guy said is like choosing between your children in that case is easier because everyone who has siblings knows who the favorite one is.

The play early thing doesn't make any sense to me so the actual release date if you pre-ordered is November 10th then?
