Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios’ stealth-infused action epic, Dishonored 2, arrives on PC this week with a gripping new storyline set fifteen years after the conclusion of the first game where a deadly usurper threatens the throne of the Empress Emily Kaldwin. 

The anticipated sequel boasts a slew of all-new gameplay features including the freedom to tackle missions either aggressively or stealthily as Dishonored 2’s duo of playable protagonists, Corvo Attano and Emily Kaldwin.

The PC edition of Dishonored 2 also launches today with a variety of advanced graphical technologies and enhancements designed to take advantage of systems equipped with high-end GPUs such as a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 or GTX 1070.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX-exclusive visual features built into Dishonored 2 include TXAA anti-aliasing for superior image quality that leverages MSAA multisample anti-aliasing, post processes, and NVIDIA-designed temporal filters. Additionally, the game supports HBAO+ for richer, and more authentically realistic shadows and lighting and NVIDIA Ansel, the later of which allows PC users to capture stunning 360-degree screenshots in-game and then tweak those shots with post-process filters.
