Comes with 10 Challenge maps and new trophies for those looking for more out of Arkane’s brilliant new IP.
The game sneaked its way onto E3 earlier on in the year and since then held nearly everyone’s interest. Haunting trailers, an intriguing marketing campaign and a steady stream of announcements had everyone keeping a close eye on the promising title. Many likened the game to a mixture of Thief, Assassin’s Creed, Hitman and BioShock.
When the game finally did hit shelves it made quite a name for itself on both the sales front and the review score as well, Dishonored had established itself as the game to play for those who wanted a unique single player experience.
In terms of a sequel, there seems to be some debate among the developers and as well as the game’s publisher, Take Two, regarding whether or not the game will have a sequel. A number of developers wanted to end it on a high while the publishers claim to have “an IP” on their hands, which basically means one can expect a sequel.
However, in the meantime, the developers are focused on bringing a total of three different DLC packs for the game, the first of which is the Dunwall City Trials.
The DLC consists of 10 Challenge Maps, the first of which is Assassin’s Run, which requires players to kill as many enemies with the crossbow as possible during their run while keeping civilian casualties to a minimum.
The second challenge is Mystery Foe, which sees the players look for four clues which will reveal the assassination target.
The third challenge is the Bend Time Massacre where players will begin by “peering through glass and learning your assassination goal. Once you break the glass, the “Bend Time” effect will begin and you’ll need to race against the clock to complete the objective.”
The next challenge is Burglars, where players have to steal six Clockwork Eggs without being detected while Bonfires will see players try to touch as many light beacons as possible.
Oil Drop will require players to “be quick on the draw to destroy waves of oil tanks tossed from above.”
Train Runner will pit players in race against a train while Back Alley Brawl is a survival mode where players will face a constant wave of enemies.
The final two challenges both begin with the world ‘Kill’, the first is followed by Chain Massacre, which based on kill combos while Kill Cascade requires players to “perform a series of drop assassinations as you try to reach the end of the run as fast as possible.”
The DLC comes with its host of trophies specific to the challenges as well to give some extra incentive for players.
