The wait is finally over, as Bethesda recently announced that “Dishonored 2” has been confirmed for release on November 11, 2016. The sequel’s release date has been highly anticipated ever since developers officially announced the game at the E3 2015.
According to Gamespot, the world premiere of the follow-up title will debut at Bethesda’s 2016 E3 Showcase in Los Angeles, California on June 12, 2016. Fans who can’t make it can still be part of the event by live streaming the showcase via Twitch and YouTube.
Fans can also attend the BE3 Plus after party where “upcoming games will be showcased, demos will be playable, and a ‘top-secret band’ will play,” the site noted. Interested parties can register at the BE3 Showcase website.
Apart from its world premiere happening next month, “Dishonored 2” has also revealed its star-studded cast. As reports have already confirmed, some notable “Daredevil” and “Game of Thrones” stars will lend their voices to some of the sequel’s characters.
“Daredevil’s” Vincent D’Onofrio and Rosario Dawson will be joining the cast as the Duke of Serkonos and the Dreadful Wale Captain, while “Game of Thrones” actor Pedro Pascal will be lending his voice to Paolo, the Howler Gang Leader, Gamespot reported.
One of “Dishonored 2’s” main protagonist, Corvo Attano, will be voiced by Stephen Russell. Russell is well-known for being the voice of “Thief’s” Garrett and “Fallout 4’s” Nick Valentine. This will be the first time fans will hear Corvo talk as his character was silent in the first game.
As previously reported, “Dishonored 2” players can get to choose between Corvo or his daughter, Emily Kaldwin. Emily can reportedly “fire out a tendril and grapple around the environment. She also wields a crossbow and is capable of dispatching enemies up-close using a sword.”
The sequel will move from Dunwall to Karnaca, where Corvo was born.
