Rumour has it that Arkane's Dishonored 2 has boarded a plague ship bound for E3 2014

Rumour has it that Arkane's Dishonored 2 has boarded a plague ship bound for E3 2014

Dishonored 2 is in development at Arkane, according to somebody with a photo of a TV screen. That’s not entirely a surprise: since Bethesda’s Pete Hines started making positive noises, an Arkane-developed Dishonored 2 has been the worst kept secret since “Corvo didn’t kill the Empress".

What’s more surprising is just how soon it’ll be upon us. The photograph indicates that we should expect a “full reveal" at E3 in June this year.

Dress as your favourite empress-killer in Team Fortress 2

I’m afraid I’ve been a little presumptuous with the title there. If you’re wanting to don the garb of the sword-wearing Japanese agents who killed the Korean Empress Myeongseong in 1895, you're going to be disappointed. If you’re hoping to wield the sharpened needle file used by an Italian anarchist to stab Elisabeth of Austria three years later, you’ll want to look elsewhere.

If, however, you’re looking to bear a striking resemblance to fictional enemy of Dunwall and former protector of the crown Corvo Attano while you rocket jump - then I can help you.

Dishonored co-creative director "hopeful" for future of complex, PC-like multiplatform games

Dishonored co-creative director "hopeful" for future of complex, PC-like multiplatform games

It can be a little disheartening to look at the broad sweep of immersive sim development. Is Dishonored really a decade and a half’s advancement away from Thief? And what on Earth was going on in those eight years between Deus Exes?

Arkane founder Raphael Colantonio has a more positive outlook on the shape of complex action game development. After a dip in the ‘00s, he believes the public appetite for games like Dishonored will only increase.

Dishonored: Game of the Year Edition trailer tempts a return to Dunwall

Dishonored: Game of the Year Edition trailer tempts a return to Dunwall

There’s a great deal of love for Dishonored around the PCGN offices.* Jeremy and Rob, in particular, won’t speak to anyone who hasn’t walked the streets of Dunwall and tried to vindicate Corvo in the eyes of its denizens.

If you’re one of the types that they wouldn’t speak to then you still have a chance to redeem yourself. Next week sees the release of Dishonored’s Game of the Year Edition.

Arkane "ramping up" for "next-gen development" post-Dishonored

Did you know? By the time Dishonored: Game of the Year edition rolls up in October, its parent game will have been around for a whole year. I feel as if greatness has somehow been normalised in the interim.

Arkane Studios, meanwhile, have become the new darlings of the games industry. They’re currently “ramping up on what comes next", say Bethesda. “Next-gen development".

Dishonored: Game of the Year edition is aptly named, due in October

You could make a pretty convincing argument in defence of the box art for Dishonored’s Game of the Year edition. Its contours, see, reflect the fact that Dunwall is as much about place - the sense of it, the atmosphere of it, the navigation of it - as it is about people. Dunwall is the face of Dishonored, is what you might say.

It wouldn’t stop it looking a bit rubbish, though.

Hey there, Delilah: eight astonishing in-game paintings from Dishonored's Brigmore Witch

Adolf Hitler’s rejection from the Vienna Academy of Art has become one of history’s ultimate What Ifs. Who knows, goes the thought, how things would’ve turned out had he been accepted?

The same can’t be said for Daud-hating Delilah, murderous witch and fictional antagonist of Dishonored’s last chunk of DLC. Because if she had applied to Dunwall’s local art school, she’d undoubtedly have got in. Check out her work below.

Dishonored kill stat bug fixed, as if non-lethality wasn't tough enough already

You can’t simply invite witches into your game. You have to prepare: secure broom parking points; custom slippers built to support their square feet; gas fireplaces to replace culturally insensitive hearths; that sort of thing.

Arkane know this, and have put together a big old patch ahead of The Brigmore Witches’ release next week. One thing the covens can’t abide, I’m told, is dodgy admin - and so the developers have put straight a bug that meant NPCs killed by fall damage were missing from the game’s end-of-level kill stats screen.

Arkane pull off Coldridge Prison break-out live at QuakeCon in Brigmore Witches DLC showcase

How closely does the name ‘Brigmore Witches’ resemble that of B*Witched, the ‘90s Irish girl group? Not that closely, actually, but just enough that I can’t now seem to claw their songs and freeze-frame-jump promo shots out of my head.

Fortunately, there’s 40 minutes of Dishonored DLC footage to hand with which to flush them out.

Dishonored’s Brigmore Witches DLC teased with in-game adverts and doomy diary

In just under three weeks, Dishonored’s last planned slice of DLC will be plated up and served hot on Steam. In the meantime, we’re stuck in one of those elastic never-want-it-to-end, can’t-come-soon-enough fidgety periods. To ease the ear-popping pain of temporal fluctuation, Bethesda bring artwork freshly ripped from the walls of Dunwall, and a journal entry nabbed from the desk of somebody who was probably standing right there.

Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches is the game’s last DLC, will put you at the mercy of Corvo

The Brigmore Witches will see an end to not only Daud’s tale, but also our dalliance with Arkane’s stellar first-person sneaker, my game of the year, Dishonored. On August 13 the developers will move onto other projects, and we’ll come face to mask with a very familiar assassin and one-time Royal Bodyguard: Corvo Attano.

Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches DLC brings a hoarse man to water in concept art

Where’s Daud’s Amphibian Feet Flaps upgrade at? We spent a good portion of The Knife of Dunwall in and among the drowned architecture of the Flooded District, and it doesn’t seem the (potentially) reformed master assassin will even have time to rinse those lovely leather gloves before wading out again in pursuit of the titular Brigmore Witches. Soggy.

Elder Scrolls Online, Wolfenstein and Dishonored will lead QuakeCon from August 1

QuakeCon is coming, and it sees (mostly) in first-person. Once John Carmack finishes the two-hour techno-babble ritual necessary to sustain id Software’s bewilderment-powered monster rigs, he’ll hand over to a who’s who of top Bethesda developers: Arkane, Tango Gameworks, Zenimax Online and Starbreeze alumni MachineGames.

Arkane last spotted Bethesda man of marketing Pete Hines lining up Dishonored accolades in their Austin, Texas office car park to spell out the word ‘sequel’. Or so Hines’ comments last year would suggest. “We clearly have a new franchise," he proudly proclaimed at the time.

In a recent chat with IGN, he seemed every bit as enthusiastic - and suggested that the future of the series lies in the hands of Arkane alone.

The Weekly Playlist: the one where Rob and Jeremy argue about lethal vs nonlethal play in Dishonored

This edition of The Weekly Playlist is a special issue, rather than bring you a smorgasboard of gaming stories, Rob and Jeremy argue the case for which of them is playing Dishonored  "right". Should Dunwall be delivered from its corrupt overlords by way of the knife or the sleeping dart? Is Rob's violence playing into the hands of those being disposed of? Or, is Jeremy's nonlethality simply an exercise in moral self-deception?

D'aww: a Dishonored developer explains his job to his mother

When we all celebrated Mother’s Day two months ago in the UK, Americans were conspicuous by their absence. None of us said anything at the time, of course - in this country, politeness trumps pragmatism. But somebody must have realised their mistake yesterday, and suddenly everyone in the US was driving across town to see their mothers, to try and rectify their mistake.

One of those people was Dishonored producer and game designer Seth Shain, who decided this weekend to detail to his mum precisely what he does for a living. Here’s how it went.

Dishonored: Void Walker Arsenal lets you buy preorder content post release

While preordering a game may be a slightly strange concept in this digital age where there is almost no worry of games stock ever running out and thus requiring copies to be put aside, companies have taken to rewarding the practice with added gubbins. An exclusive weapon here, a VIP map there, a statue of a dismembered woman’s corpse, what have you.

Though, if you weren’t into the whole preordering schtick you may have missed out on Dishonored’s miscellany. Have no fear Bethesda are releasing the extras as a DLC pack called the Void Walker Arsenal.
