E3 2017 – Dishonored: Death of the Outsider DLC Announced

At their E3 press conference, Bethesda revealed Dishonored: Death of the Outsider. This is the first DLC for Dishonored 2, but the official website is describing it as a standalone game. It features the same stealth, combat, decision-making,  and storytelling that the series is known for. The press release describes Dishonored: Death of the Outsider as follows:

Take on the role of Billie Lurk, once one of Dunwall’s most notorious killers-for-hire. Reunited with your old mentor, the legendary assassin Daud, you undertake the greatest assassination ever conceived: killing the Outsider, a god-like figure whom Daud sees as instrumental in some of the Empire’s most dishonorable moments. As you venture deep into the grimiest corners of Karnaca to uncover the mystery of the Outsider and his origins, face deadly opposition, dark ancient powers, and difficult decisions that will forever change the world around you.

Bethesda announced the following features as the key attractions for the standalone expansion Dishonored: Death of the Outsider.
