Dishonored 2's getting a free trial that's made up of the first three missions


The Dunwall Demo

Five months after the fervor has subsided, Bethesda's looking to cash in on a few more residual Dishonored 2 sales. The "try before you buy" model has proven itself proficient in the past -- especially when there's no real threat that it might scare off customers who were willing to pay -- so that's the route Bethesda's going.

On April 6, Dishonored 2 will get a trial on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It'll consist of the game's first three missions (although I suppose savvy samplers could play it as both Emily and Corvo, essentially turning it into a six mission demo). For anyone who's keen to buy it afterward, progress from the trial will carry over to the full game.

Strangely, this trial doesn't seem like it'll coincide with a sale. That's how these things usually go this far after release -- a one-two punch of gameplay they like and then a splash screen declaring a $20 discount. There's still time for Bethesda to stealthily slash Dishonored 2's price; we'll have to wait until Thursday to see.
