Arkane Studios have been closely studying the way we’ve been interacting with Dishonored 2, whether we’re stopping to loot dead bodies, using direct force to attack enemies, or ignoring in-game events entirely.
Excitingly, they are going to allow us even more opportunities for playing the way we want by adding in custom difficulty settings as well as a New Game + mode. There will be more details in the coming weeks, but this is a really encouraging sign that the game will continue to expand and grow in new ways.
Maybe we’ll even get some DLC, eh?
New Game + will be added into the game as a free update in December. So not only is there ripe opportunity for 4 different playthroughs (low and high chaos with both Emily and Corvo) now a New Game + mode could add another 4 to the mix.
We’ll have a review for you shortly, but suffice to say, we can see ourselves playing it more than the once.
Check out this video in the meantime to get a feel for how Arkane are observing the way we play.
