Dishonored 2 Coming to Xbox One, PS4 with Two Playable Characters

Dishonored 2 Xbox One, PS4

In addition to showing off gameplay videos of Fallout 4 and the new DOOM, Bethesda used E3 2015 to officially announce Dishonored 2, which lets you play as two playable characters.

Released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the first Dishonored game was a first-person action-adventure game set in a plague-ridden industrial city (Dunwall) and had you take control of Corvo Attano, a bodyguard who was framed for the murder of the city’s empress he was protecting.

To get revenge, he becomes a deadly assassin supported by a resistance group fighting to reclaim Dunwall, and the Outsider — a powerful being who imbues him with magical abilities.

The game world is a series of self-contained, mission-focused areas designed for multiple avenues of exploration in terms of in-game movement and powers. There is an emphasis on stealth action, the use of gadgets and the environment to eliminate enemies.

Like BioShock, Dishonored had role-playing game elements, such as the ability to upgrade powers and to make moral choices with a focus on non-linear consequences. The game was very well-received by critics and gamers alike.

Bethesda released an announcement trailer for Dishonored 2, and we like what we see so far. The superior technology of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One should allow the game to reach new heights in every way imaginable…

Dishonored 2 gives players the opportunity to play as two different characters – Corvo and new female playable character Emily Kaldwin, who was heir to the throne of Dunwall. It would be interesting to see how this works out…

Did you play the original Dishonored? Are you looking forward to Dishonored 2? Let us know in the comments below.

Xbox One S Actually More Powerful Than Regular Xbox One

Published

Xbox One S and original

When Microsoft revealed the slim Xbox One S at E3 2016, we were led to believe its only noteworthy selling points were its significantly smaller size and more appealing design. However, as it turns out, it is also more powerful than the regular Xbox One.

Yes, the console also supports 4K media playback and boasts a UHD Blu-ray player, but we are little astonished to find out it actually plays regular Xbox One games better.

In an interview with Polygon, Rod Fergusson, head of Gears of War 4 developer The Coalition, said the new Gears benefits from some of the Xbox One S’ increased power.

Apparently, the updated console features increased GPU and CPU “raw” power that allows games to dynamically scale resolution in both single-player and multiplayer and maintain frame-rate targets for each.

The team behind Gears of War 4 was able to use the extra power to reduce the frequency of frame-rate and resolution penalties in demanding spots.

The Xbox One S’ high dynamic range (HDR) offers a wider colour range, helping with some visuals improvements like surface detail on metal and armour.

It’s odd that Microsoft didn’t say anything about the One S having more power than the regular Xbox One, even if it isn’t a huge increase. Maybe they didn’t want to shift any focus away from the beast that is the Xbox One Scorpio…

Are you more likely to buy an Xbox One S now?

Scalebound’s development has experienced reboots and delays, but it’s a lot closer to bringing us large-scale multiplayer dragon combat that fans have long wanted.

We get to see a team of dragon-riding players take on a massive crab-like sea monster that fills much of the environment. Watch how they go about business…
