Dishonored: Death of the Outsider asks players to kill a god

No rest for the weary

Billie Lurk is tough as nails. She's appeared throughout the Dishonored games, always dedicated to her mission and prepared to do whatever it takes to get a job done. Her work as an assassin has led her places many could never imagine, but in Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, Billie Lurk's final task is nearly unfathomable. She's going to kill a mischievous god.

The latest Death of the Outsider trailer hones in on Billie's unique supernatural abilities and combat prowess. Like Corvo, Emily, and her one-time partner in crime Daud, she's an agile and capable killer. Lurk can leap from the shadows and slash her foes' throats without a second thought and fire wrist-mounted arrows with pinpoint precision, among other skills, but it will take more than a few well-timed strikes to kill the Outsider.

Some narrative tidbits are floating about in the gameplay trailer. Billie's strained relationship with Daud gets dredged up, as the Outsider-touched killer asks for her help on a seemingly impossible mission. Daud, with Billie by her side once again, is hell-bent on taking down the mysterious and strangely alluring god, and he seems convinced that his partner is the right assassin for the job. 

It all comes together in a way that invites and excites. The promise of a game centered on a quest to kill the Dishonored series' most intriguing character is difficult to ignore. The above trailer makes it more than clear that Billie Lurk is no slouch, but damn, putting a god six feet under sounds like a tall order.

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is set to release on September 15, 2017. You can walk a few miles in Billie's shoes on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
