Review: Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches photo
Review: Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches
by Fraser Brown

I'm meant to be playing a cold, calculating murderer -- a man who assassinated an empress and gave her innocent daughter to traitors. So why am I hiding atop a broken chandelier, a mess of tightly wound nerves and sweat? Because I pissed off a witch, that's why. A whole coven of witches, actually. And they are hunting me down, not like nervous gang members searching for a ghost, but like predatory animals. 

The Brigmore Witches, Dishonored's second expansion, might begin mere hours after The Knife of Dunwall ends, but it's a different beast. The horror that existed on the peripheries of the previous outings is now center stage, and with it comes greater challenges while peeling back the layers of Dunwall and the surrounding isles, revealing its darkest elements. This is Dishonored at its very best.

Arkane Studios' Prey 2 reboot confirmed via leaked e-mail

Arkane hints at what's next for Dishonored

Arkane Studios has -- for the time being, anyway -- wrapped up Dishonored, now that The Brigmore Witches DLC is out. The stealth-action title has done well enough to be considered a full franchise by publisher Bethesda and it...

Bethesda: Arkane Studios isn't working on Prey 2

Prey 2 was announced a bit more than two years ago, and its existence has been nothing short of tumultuous. It's gone from highly anticipated to pronounced dead to on life-support, and no one's really sure what its statu...

Predation: Bethesda tried to buy Human Head

Upcoming Dishonored DLC bundles pre-order rewards

Pre-order bonuses aren't going anywhere, it seems. And if that truly is the case, the least a developer can do is make retailer-exclusive rewards available after the fact. I'll never buy this stuff, but someone else presumabl...

Review: Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall photo
Review: Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall
by Fraser Brown

Crouching on the rooftop of a dilapidated building in the whale oil-fuelled Victorian dystopia of Dunwall, I felt like I had never left. I'd cleared the name of Corvo Attano, saved a child who would become an Empress, and freed a city from the clutches of mad men and despots, but here I was again, leaping from ledges, slitting throats, and doing the work of the Outsider.

The Knife of Dunwall is neither a revolution or a reinvention -- it is simply more Dishonored. Whether that's a good thing or something less desirable really depends on how you feel about Arkane's first-person stealth game.

It will also likely depend on the way you played the original. With Dishonored, the developers attempted to craft a title that could be experienced as an action game or a stealth game, though I think that the latter made for the most compelling romp. The Knife of Dunwall, however, is not something that should be raced through, sword raised, guns blazing. Though there are more than ample opportunities for a bit of mayhem if that's your cup of tea.

Dishonored's lore summed up in a minute

Dishonored is the game with the racists people in the sky? Or is it the one with the head crabs? I've been playing Black Mesa and BioShock Infinite recently, so Dishonored feels like a distant memory, despite it being my per...

Dishonored's Corvo goes on a live action killing spree

Dishonored's combination of magic and weaponry made for a perfect mixture of making you feel like a total overpowered badass. Stringing together kills all while teleporting around levels like your Nightcrawler from the opening of X-Men 2 can be thrilling, but you probably want to make sure you're not about to kill anyone important while on your spree.
