According to Eurogamer, gameplay will be revealed at E3 this year. Whilst Bethesda’s press conference will take place at night on the 12th June in the US, but you might need to set your alarm if you’re a Europe-dweller, as it begins in the early hours of the 13th.
Little has been divulged about Dishonoured 2 since its big reveal at last year’s E3. We do know, however, that you’ll be able to play as Emily Kaldwin, the Empress’ Daughter, as well as the enigmatic hero, Corvo.
Like its predecessor, the game will feature a choice-driven narrative, as well as the option to opt for a more pacifist route during combat, or to take down your enemies like an artful assassin.
The sequel boasts an impressive voice-cast, too, featuring vocal talents from films such as Moon, games such as Fallout and Skyrim – and even TV shows like Daredevil and Game of Thrones, according to Game Informer. The original Dishonoured’s Corvo will be markedly more vocal in this game, and is to be voiced by Stephen Russell, who appeared in a number of other Bethesda games. He is well known for his roles as Mercer Frey in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Nick Valentine in Fallout 4.
Previously played by Chloe Grace Moretz, the grown-up Emily Kaldwin will be played by Erica Luttrell (Fallout 4, Steven Universe). Another character from the original game – The Outsider – is set to return, but will this time be played by Gotham’s Robin Lord Taylor. Although most of Dishonoured 2 will unfold in Karnaca, a character from the first game’s locale of Dunwall takes a minor role. Mortimer Ramsey will be voiced by Sam Rockwell (Iron Man 2).
There’ll also be stars of Netflix’s Daredevil voicing two integral characters in Dishonoured 2. Vincent D’Onofrio will lend his pipes to the character of Luca Abele, Duke of Serkon, with Rosario Dawson voicing Dreadful Whale Captain, Meagan Foster.
Finally, Pedro Pascal of Game of Thrones is set to voice Paolo, leader of the Howler gang. Liam Hector (The Wire), meanwhile, will play the Vice Overseer, Liam Byrne.
Dishonoured 2 releases on November 11th for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
