Dishonored 2 New Game Plus Mode Update

Dishonored 2 New Game Plus update is coming next week.

One of the main abilities is that you are actually able to put together Empress Emily Kaldwin’s all-new abilities with Royal Protector Corvo Attano’s signature powers. This can be quite exciting to experience.

Below in the list you can see all the improvements coming along Dishonored 2 and plus the new game.

The new mode allows you to be creative and combine some combo powers Corvo’s Devouring Swarm with Emily’s Mesmerize. With finishing Dishonored 2 you have the chance to continue the New Game Plus and you can play with any of those two characters. But this time you are using all the abilities from both heroes. The game becomes very dynamic which allows you to play with the same Runes and Bonecharm Traits what you own from before, but also with the New Game Plus you can choose if maybe you want to change your powers.

The Creative Director Harvey Smith said “Dishonored players have asked for it, so now New Game Plus is here for Dishonored 2. If you’ve ever wanted to make higher-powered characters, now’s your chance. If you’ve wanted to play Emily Kaldwin with Possession or Devouring Swarm, or Corvo Attano with Domino, now you can. We’ve been having fun with it here at Arkane Studios, and we hope you will too.”

One of the two Game Updates releases today as a beta on PC after comes officially for PC, Xbox One and PS4 on Monday, December 19th.

Game Update 2 is coming in January and includes two new features: Mission Select and additional Custom Difficulty Settings. This allows you to further create Dishonored 2 how you want and adjusts the challenge based on a wide array of settings. More info on Game Update 2 is coming very soon.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
