If you didn’t already know, Bethesda held their E3 2016 press conference yesterday and oh boy did it put EA’s to shame. One development studio had more presence than any other at the show last night and that was Arkane Studios. We already wrote about their other game Prey, which you can check out here. However, this article will be dealing with a hell of a lot of information on the sequel to their previously released game Dishonored.
First of all, we now have a release date for Dishonored 2 which will be November 11th, 2016. That’s exactly five years, to the day, since Bethesda’s in house game Skyrim was released. If you’re eager to get your hands on Dishonored 2 then we highly encourage you to pre-order, especially if you haven’t played the first game yet. This is because anybody who digitally pre-orders Dishonored 2 will receive a digital copy of the original Dishonored’s Definitive Edition completely free. The offer will only be available for a limited period of time and it’s not exactly clear when you’ll receive your copy of the first game, but we assume you’ll get it before the sequel releases to give players time to catch up.
Arkane also announced a pretty cool collector’s edition for Dishonored 2. It will release along side the standard edition on the 11th and will set you back $99.99. If you’re interested in pre-ordering it you can click the Bethesda Store link in the sources below. The collector’s edition will contain the following:
- A replica of Corvo’s mask and stand.
- Emily’s ring in a display box.
- A full colour poster.
- The game in a collectable steel bookcase.
- A digital copy of Dishonored: Definitive Edition.
- The Imperial Assassin’s DLC Pack.
Lastly, there’s a new two minute gameplay trailer for the game. Bethesda actually showed off two new missions and loads of new abilities at the conference itself but this trailer distils most of it down into a quick to view trailer. We shall say no more about it, bar the trailer is right below so check it out and enjoy.

Conor is Pure PlayStation’s resident Irishman. Naturally that means he’s constantly slurring his words and turning up stinking of Guiness with a potato in his pocket. It’s not all bad though, because Conor is also a PlayStation nut. When he’s not doing his best Father Jack impression (Father Ted, watch it) he’s got a DualShock 4 in his hand and a Vita in the other. Yeah, we don’t know how he manages it either.
