"Are we rushing in, or are we going sneaky-beaky-like?" That's the running motto of the Dishonored series of games, combining stealth and action (not mutually exclusively) in a first-person perspective. The first game had those contents wrapped in RPG elements, a great storyline, and a distinctive steampunk-victorian art style. Dishonored 2 is set to emerge soon, and it's looking as moody as its predecessor. Check out the launch trailer below.
Emily Kaldwin, the unofficial daughter of the previous game's lead character Corvo Attano, now joins her father in a protagonist role. Players with doubts about the availability of career choices in Dishonored 2 can rest easy. Bethesda's earlier videos depict both "low chaos" and "high chaos" paths through the same mission.
Unlike Ms. Kaldwin, Dishonored 2's base system requirements are rather tame. Prospective stabbers need only a Core i5-2400 or FX-8320 CPU, 8GB of RAM, and a GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7970 graphics card. For those going in commando-style with all the weaponry, Bethesda recommends a Core i7-4770 or FX-8350 CPU, 16GB of RAM, and a GTX 1060 6GB or RX 480 8GB card.
Perhaps to assuage some PC gamers' fears, the specs sheet mentions configurable graphics settings, uncapped frame rates, FOV adjustment, and multi-monitor support. There are also a few Nvidia-specific features like HBAO+ and TXAA. Dishonored 2 will emerge this Friday, but trusting gamers who preordered the title can start playing one day earlier.
