Bethesda recently teased the announcement of a new set of downloadable content for Arkane’s stealth-action game Dishonored, and we now have the details on The Knife of Dunwall DLC which will let us see the events of the original game from the eyes of Corvo’s enemy, a supernatural assassin by the name of Daud.
Due for release over the week of April 16th on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC (for 800 MS Points / $9.99 / £7.99), The Knife of Dunwall add-on DLC for Dishonored will put you squarely in the assassin boots of Daud, who after assassinating the Empress, has sought redemption for the act.
It’s at this time that the mysterious Outsider reveals himself to Daud, putting him on a just-as-mysterious mission – who or what is Delilah?
Daud will be helped by his local group of mercenaries, The Whalers, as players are taken through ‘never-before-seen districts of Dunwall’ while facing off against “new and terrible foes,” with new weapons and powers at your command.
“In the struggle to hang onto the last shred of your humanity,” Bethesda writes, “the choices you make will ultimately determine your fate.”
Here’s what to expect from The Knife of Dunwall on release in mid-April:
New Powers, Weapons and Gadgets:
The mark of the Outsider empowers you with unique supernatural abilities. Call upon the Whalers to assist in combat with ‘Summon Assassin’, track down hidden Runes and Bone Charms with ‘Void Gaze’ and learn to use new variations to powers, including ‘Blink’.
To aid in your dangerous exploits your customized arsenal of weapons and gadgets will include Chokedust to daze your enemies, whale oil powered Stun Mines to shock your targets, and a concealed Wristbow to launch sleep darts and explosive bolts.
Explore More of Dunwall:
Make your way through the Legal District and infiltrate the Rothwild Slaughterhouse, a steaming factory filled with colossal whale carcasses and their hulking butchers.
Revisit the decaying Flooded District, the location of Daud’s hidden base, first seen in the original game. Return to the scenes of key events in Dishonored with a new perspective, including the fateful moment that sets off Corvo’s journey.
Choose Your Path:
On your search for answers, approach each mission with your own style. Your redemption ‒ or your turn towards darkness ‒ depends on your skills and the decisions you make. Discover the mystery behind Delilah in this stand-alone chapter, and then conclude Daud’s story in the upcoming final add-on, The Brigmore Witches.
Also be sure to look out for more details on the third and final Dishonored add-on, The Brigmore Witches, following the release of the second DLC pack. Whatever could Arkane be working on?
