The fun-sassinations continue in Knife of Dunwall, the second piece of DLC releasing for Arkane Studios’ Dishonored. In this one, players will assume the role of Daud, the legendary assassin you may have heard of from the base game. I can’t pretend to know any more here because I never got that far. Heresy! Here’s the DLC in a nutshell according to the Bethesda Blog:
New Powers, Weapons and Gadgets – The mark of the Outsider empowers you with unique supernatural abilities. Call upon the Whalers to assist in combat with ‘Summon Assassin’, track down hidden Runes and Bone Charms with ‘Void Gaze’ and learn to use new variations to powers, including ‘Blink’. To aid in your dangerous exploits your customized arsenal of weapons and gadgets will include Chokedust to daze your enemies, whale oil powered Stun Mines to shock your targets, and a concealed Wristbow to launch sleep darts and explosive bolts. Explore More of Dunwall –Make your way through the Legal District and infiltrate the Rothwild Slaughterhouse, a steaming factory filled with colossal whale carcasses and their hulking butchers. Revisit the decaying Flooded District, the location of Daud’s hidden base, first seen in the original game. Return to the scenes of key events in Dishonored with a new perspective, including the fateful moment that sets off Corvo’s journey. Choose Your Path – On your search for answers, approach each mission with your own style. Your redemption – or your turn towards darkness – depends on your skills and the decisions you make. Discover the mystery behind Delilah in this stand-alone chapter, and then conclude Daud’s story in the upcoming final add-on, The Brigmore Witches.
Knife of Dunwall is due for release on April 16, 2013 for PlayStation 3, Steam and Xbox 360 at $9.99 (800 MSP). This one seems more substantial than the last DLC, what do you guys think?.
