Bethesda has confirmed that more DLC is on the way for Arkane's Dishonored and that it will be story-based, with players taking the role of antagonist Daud, an assassin with similar powers to Corvo.
It's called 'The Knife of Dunwall' and will take us to new areas of Dunwall as well as some already visited. He'll gain variations on existing powers as well as his own unique talents.
A pointed to something called 'The Other Side of the Coin', which certain fits a story-DLC adventure exploring an antagonist.
In this DLC we'll be venturing into Daud's backstory, and apparently player choices as Corvo will have an impact on his 'ultimate fate' say Bethesda. One of the confirmed new locations is the Rothwild Slaughterhouse which is part of Dunwall's whaling trade. The Knife of Dunwall is the first story-based add-on as Dunwall City Trials was pure challenges.
The next DLC is called 'The Brigmore Witches' - Bethesda summarises the highlights:
- New Powers, Weapons and Gadgets
The mark of the Outsider empowers you with unique supernatural abilities. Call upon the Whalers to assist in combat with ‘Summon Assassin’, track down hidden Runes and Bone Charms with ‘Void Gaze’ and learn to use new variations to powers, including ‘Blink’. To aid in your dangerous exploits your customized arsenal of weapons and gadgets will include Chokedust to daze your enemies, whale oil powered Stun Mines to shock your targets, and a concealed Wristbow to launch sleep darts and explosive bolts.
- Explore More of Dunwall
Make your way through the Legal District and infiltrate the Rothwild Slaughterhouse, a steaming factory filled with colossal whale carcasses and their hulking butchers. Revisit the decaying Flooded District, the location of Daud’s hidden base, first seen in the original game. Return to the scenes of key events in Dishonored with a new perspective, including the fateful moment that sets off Corvo’s journey.
- Choose Your Path
On your search for answers, approach each mission with your own style. Your redemption – or your turn towards darkness – depends on your skills and the decisions you make. Discover the mystery behind Delilah in this stand-alone chapter, and then conclude Daud’s story in the upcoming final add-on, The Brigmore Witches.
The Knife of Dunwall releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC April 16th for 800 MSP / $9.99.
