Bethesda announced Dishonored 2 last E3 and then let it drop off the radar. It's back though! Bethesda used it close out the conference, and we got an actual gameplay demo!
Or gameplay demos. Things started slow, with one of those "slow camera pans across random environments" highlight reels, but the presentation closed with a lengthy "Dust District" mission demo that saw Emily clambering up walls, trudging through a dust storm to take guards out stealthily, and...switching off windmills? It looks like whale oil won't be the only source of energy in Dishonored 2.
Also interesting: Each character has its own set of skills, so playing Emily or Corvo should feel measurably different. Best of all is Emily's "Far-Reach" power, which is basically Scorpion's "GET OVER HERE" yank in 2016. She pulled a guard through the air and impaled him on her knife.
Awesome. The game launches on November 11.
