Bethesda has announced that Dishonored 2’s first free game update with New Game Plus will be officially available worldwide on Monday, 19th December for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and will release today as a beta on PC.
Dishonored 2 offers the freedom of choice to play and improvise as you like. With this new mode, combine Empress Emily Kaldwin’s abilities with Royal Protector Corvo Attano’s signature powers to create any custom combo of multiple powers that you can imagine. Unlocked once you complete the game as either Emily or Corvo, New Game Plus lets you begin anew as either character with access to each hero’s full suite of abilities plus all the Bonecharm Traits and Runes collected from your previous playthrough that you can re-assign to choose the powers you want.
Even more options to customize your experience will arrive in January with the game’s second free update that will include two new features: Mission Select and additional Custom Difficulty Settings that further tailor to your play style and adjust the challenge based on a wide array of settings. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for more details on the second free update.
Reprise your role as a supernatural assassin in Dishonored 2, the follow up to Arkane Studio’s first-person action blockbuster and winner of more than 100 ‘Game of the Year’ awards.
