You will be able to play Dishonored 2 soon, as it launches on Friday (tomorrow). To whip up a bit more enthusiasm for this highly anticipated sequel Bethesda has just published a launch trailer.
As those who have been following this news and played the previous game will know, it is possible to play this game with a mixture of stealth and savagery but of course stealth doesn't look that appealing in a short promo video. So, after the necessary story prologue and the introduction of some evil foes the video jumps straight to clips of dealing and creatively dispatching your enemies with knives, guns and more. The action looks like it is in-game footage.
Dishonored 2 launches on Xbox One, PS4, and PC tomorrow and some have already been play testing the game on PCs. In its tests PC Gamer refers to the game's PC performance as "troubling". It is said to falter somewhat on machines between the minimum and recommended settings. A NeoGaf user (via TweakTown) is even more critical of the game's performance with the frame rate of the game reportedly 'tanking' whenever an open area is encountered.
If you are an AMD GPU user you might be pleased to know the firm released a new beta driver yesterday which adds support for Dishonored 2, among other tweaks and fixes. You can read more about that and download it directly from AMD's Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.11.3 release notes page. Nvidia users could grab a game-ready driver a fortnight ago.
Watch Dogs 2
Watch Dogs 2 is available from Tuesday 15th November on consoles and from the 29th November on PCs. Ubisoft published the game's launch trailer yesterday. It again features a large portion of story prologue.
As those following the game's development will know, this sequel is set in San Francisco and the main character is Marcus Holloway. We discover that Marcus decided to join Dedsec as he was a bit miffed about the all encompassing ctOS linking him to a crime he didn't commit. Now he spearheads efforts to destroy the big brother monitoring and controlling system throughout the Bay area.
Like Dishonoured, you can play this game with a mix of styles; from relying on smarts and stealth, to going in guns a blazing and bombs a booming.
