After a year of rumors and leaks, the anticipated sequel to Dishonored has officially been announced.

 

 

At least it's a different location, but I'm not sure how having both Corvo and Emily as playable characters would work, especially since their fates are determined by the player's choices in the original Dishonored.

What makes you say that Corvo will be playable? He doesn't appear at all in the trailer.

That's what Bethesda has stated, you'll be able to switch between them.

Looks prerendered ;). Did they announce what engine this is running on? I don't believe Unreal 3 could pull something off like this. Unreal 4 or RAGE?

At the start of the story you get to choose between Emily and Corvo, and then you finish the entire game as the character you picked. You do not get to switch between characters mid-story. They have different powers, different animations, and the people in the world react differently to each of the characters.

It's a cinematic trailer, it's not even in-engine probably. Probably going to be Unreal 4. They make it look as good as possible and don't pretend that this is what the engine can do. I respect that.

Sort of like the first Tenchu game.

Interesting catch from the trailer: new rats (infection vectors)=crows and crow=Corvo (in italian) :D


Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

Err, Crows? Where? Mostly I see Seagulls :unsure:

 

There's graffiti to read. Some of it reads 'Death to the Duke' and 'Howlers come at night'...

After watching the Bethesda post show they announced it will be released in Spring 2016 and apparently the city it takes place in is the home place of Corvo, should be some interesting backstory there.

 

Speaking of the setting i'm really loving the city they choose this time, a pirate-esque down by the bay feel. My favorite Thief fm setting is the bay/pirate based ones so it will be fantastic to explore this game in that setting.

The Dishonored 2 fact sheet from last years E3 said idTech5, not unreal.

Is that genuine? Some of the info seems wrong - not least that there was no reveal in 2014.

That "fact sheet" is complete and utter horseshit.

 

Excuse my french, but that's what it is.

I could believe it's a mock-up someone on their staff, possibly totally out of touch with development, threw together for demo-ing, not official and before they had full info. But it'd be easy for some random person to outright fake too. Either way, the cat's out of the bag now anyway.

There were some things the fake leaks got right, such as being able to play as Emily.

I don't know if it is or not.  It says 'for internal use only' right on it, so it wasn't meant to be seen by the public.  This has been discussed before on TTLG but since Zenimax owns Bethesda it seems logical that it might encourage their studios to use their own tech.

The thought is that the "fact sheet' is/was a fake.  it states the game will take place in Tyvia, which is in the far northwest of Dishonored's world.  The E3 announcement today states the opposite, that the game will take place in Serkonos, which is in the south.

 

They've also stated no multiplayer.  So really the only thing it got right was "new main character."  And then it says "Annihilate The Outsider."  WTF?  Sounds like the person who wrote that might have some issues with translating to English.  That and all the strange placing of hyphens..  I'm guessing someone was having some fun.

They're called Bloodflies, as stated by Harvey Smith on his Twitter account.

The idea that you can play as Emily isn't entirely unpredictable too. It's an obvious option following the last game, so it's not crazy to say a person just fishing for ideas could get that right.

Seems, DH2 will use so named Void Engine, which is presumably based on id Tech (5? 6?).

Source to back that up?

Bethesda trademarked the Void Engine which is based on idTech.  Certainly seems to be enough rumors floating around for it to be real.  I just sent Harvey Smith a message on twitter to see if he's able to clear it up.

Snippets! Some graffiti reads 'The Crown Killer is Watching' (30s). At the end of the trailer, the assassination target (The Duke, I'm guessing) appeals to Emily 'Think before you strike, you'll become the assassin we claimed you were...'

 

So there's a bit of a plot thing there. The dishonour in the game comes from anti-royalist propaganda, orchestrated by nobility(?) or some such.
