Here’s what we know about this upcoming game.
As seen on the Bethesda E3 2017 livestream, the Dishonored Death of the Outsider trailer features Billy sneaking into a ship and getting rid of its guards through stealth and misdirection. The character evenntualy rescues Daud and reveals their goal to kill The Outsider. We’ll know about the details of this plan and the story once it’s released. Death of the Outsider is a standalone spin-off, not a DLC for Dishonored 2.
Characters in the Trailer
So far, the three important characters are Billie Lurk, Daud, and The Outsider. At the end of Dishonored 2, Billie Lurk decides to drop her “Meghan Foster” alias and return to her Assassin life in this title. This assassin turns out to be Daud as they previously went through a lot in the previous Dishonored 1 DLC. Daud was the expansion’s main character. Upon rescuing Daud, both Lurk and Daud plan to kill the Outsider as he’s the source for all the “chaos” in the Dishonored universe
So far, The Outsider has granted gifts to his chosen people in the Dishonored universe. In the series, he offered powers to Corvo and Emily to help them fulfill their goals. However, The Outsider also gave powers to Daud to use for their own agenda. The Outsider has strictly been a neutral force in the series and only extends his aid to characters facing a force larger than them. This upcoming Dishonored Death of the Outsider might reveal The Outsider’s goals as his own character in the Dishonored series.
Play as Billie
Only Billie Lurk was mentioned as a playable on the official Bethesda site. It seems that Daud may just guide her way to kill The Outsider . So far, the trailer revealed that Lurk can use a variety of firearms and bladed weapons through her mechanical arms. She also has a teleport ability to kill foes from behind. The Dishonored series has been known to supply tools for stealthy and action-focused players.
This spin-off will also cover a “stealth or loud” gameplay choice where players can use Lurk’s expertise and powers to kill quietly or in the open. Dishonored Death of the Outsider will be released this September 15 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
