Catching Up With Arkane Studios’ Dishonored
Dishonored is set to see the release of its first campaign-expanding DLC next week, titled The Knife of Dunwall. It’s the second DLC for the game, following the release of the Dunwall City Trials DLC which added arenas and challenge-based missions, which we reviewed here.
The Knife of Dunwall puts players in the shoes of Daud, the assassin who takes out the Empress at the very beginning of the original campaign and kidnaps her daughter. You can catch the trailer right here:
We’ve everything from guides to aid you in getting the most out of Corvo, the game’s protagonist, including a guide for the locations of all the weapon and upgrade blueprints, an outsider shrine locations guide, guides for both rune and bone charm collectibles, and a Sokolov paintings collectible guide. If you’re planning to play the game for the first time, or intent on replaying it before you delve into the DLC, these guides should help you maximize your experience.
For those of you who’ve already completed the game, we’ve prepared a guide on how to do a non-lethal playthrough.
If you’re having trouble playing the game on its highest settings, our .INI tweaks guide will help improve the game’s performance.
Dishonored, which exceeded the expectations of its publisher, Bethesda, is set to see the release of more DLC after The Knife of Dunwall comes out. We’ve written about five of the things we’d like to see.
It’s unknown whether Dishonored’s creators will develop a sequel after their work on the current game is done, as its co-creator Harvey Smith said last year that he wasn’t sure whether he would like to see a sequel. However, judging from the sales of Dishonored, there’s a good chance it’ll happen.
In the meantime, you can always listen to the game’s soundtrack, which has been made available on iTunes. You can also read about how Arkane put the game’s Dunwall setting together and how it isn’t Steampunk.
