Dishonored 2 is an action-stealth game developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda. It gives the players a choice of stepping back into the shoes of Corvo Attano, the protagonist of the previous installment, or playing as Emily Kaldwin, the daughter of the Empress. Both characters have their own set of powers, gadgets, and uniquely-tuned weapons. Unlike in the original Dishonored, the protagonists are also fully voiced.
The missions in Dishonored 2 can be approached with stealth or violence, and the skill upgrade trees as well as bonecharm crafting allow the players to tailor their character to suit their playstyle. In addition, the sequel is said to have more in-depth gameplay and difficulty options aimed at those looking for a more challenging (or easier) experience.
