Dishonored 2 is getting New Game + and custom difficulties in free December update

Dishonored 2 New Game +

A New Game + mode and extra difficulty options are coming to Dishonored 2 next month, Bethesda announced today. As if we needed yet another reason to blaze through Karnaca again.

To get the full Dishonored 2 experience, you already have to play through like a murderous tornado, slink through like a ghost, and survive without accepting your otherworldly powers.

New Game + will add in a fourth option, letting you tear through as an unstoppable, powered-up force of nature. It will probably be a lot of fun, providing you use your powers for good: ripping people in half and creatively murdering folk.

Thosenew custom difficulty settings could also add yet another option, but we don’t know exactly what form they’ll take.

Removing the HUD and forcing you to eat to survive? Asking you to play like Thief and clear levels of a certain amount of valuables? You only live once? Could be stuff like that, but we’ll let you know when we have actual details.

For now, all we have to go off is Bethesda’s word that they’re coming in December.
