Dishonored 2's New Game Plus Lets Players Combine Corvo And Emily's Abilities

Dishonored 2 is adding a New Game Plus Mode as part of its latest free game update. The mode won’t just let you play a new game with your old powers. It will let you play with every power there is.


Game Update 1 is the first of two major free updates. It releases today on PC in a beta form before officially releasing on December 19th across platforms. Players eager to explore Karnaca with all of their abilities can do so to their heart’s content.

“If you’ve wanted to play Emily Kaldwin with Possession or Devouring Swarm, or Corvo Attano with Domino, now you can,” Creative Director Harvey Smith said in a blog post.


Dishonored 2 is a solid game that lends itself well to multiple playthroughs. New Game Plus’ addition seems pretty cool. I’ve always wanted to freeze time, turn into a rat, sneak behind someone, and then stab them so hard all their friends die too. Now, my dream can be a reality!

Anyone find the narrative incredibly lazy? I expected something a tad different from a second outing. Not Marvel-level repetition.
