I liked Knife of Dunwall more than Dishonored photo
I liked Knife of Dunwall more than Dishonored
by Chris Carter

Shortly after launch, Dishonored sprung some mini-DLC on us with the Trials of Dunwall challenge pack. But fans wanted so much more than that. They wanted full sandboxes, more story, and more of the world to explore. Enter The Knife of Dunwall, a DLC pack that explores the man that murdered Dishonored's Empress, and framed the hero Corvo for his crime.

The DLC will consist of three missions, all of which are sandbox oriented, and have multiple paths -- just like Dishonored's campaign. During my hour long hands-on with the game, I hit up a quick intro section. It was a short dream sequence (similar to the first game) that set me on my path to the first mission -- the whaling slaughterhouse. Before I embarked, I had a chance to upgrade and kit out Daud, similar to pre-mission setups for Corvo.

Review: Dishonored
by Jim Sterling

It seems that once or twice a year we get some new intellectual property demolishing the idea that only sequels perform well, shaking up the market in some exciting way. Despite having no big franchise name attached, it catches the eyes of gamers based on the sheer merit.

More importantly, the excitement for these new properties turns out to be justified. BioShock and Borderlands are two such examples. Naughty Dog's The Last of Us looks like it will most certainly become one. These are my favorite types of games. These are the games that should be seen as defining this generation. The ones that provided valuable respite from the sequels and the copycats. The ones that provided the experiences we'll never forget.

The ones that did what Dishonored does.
