Expanding the series focus on choice, players now have the option to play as the series previous protagonist, Corvo, or new character Emily Kaldwin. 

Emily Kaldwin featured in the original as the orphaned daughter of the Empress, now she’s all grown up with assassin abilities of her own. 

The game takes place in the city of Karnaca, with the throne once more in need of protecting. No gameplay was shown, but the launch trailer did provide the familiar blend of supernatural stealth and action the series is known for. 

Dishonored 2 has been confirmed for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. An exact release date hasn’t been set, but it’s expected to launch in Spring 2016. 

For those not wanting to wait that long for another slice of Dishonored action there’s also the Dishonored Definitive Edition releasing on August 25. 

The newly announced edition brings the original and all DLC to PS4 and Xbox One for $40.
