It was a very succinct and quick conference with Bethesda and for me, the standout was the upcoming DLC for Dishonored 2 entitled The Death of the Outsider. The short trailer showcased a mysterious figure sneaking through a small building taking out guards quite violently.
Even from a distance, you could tell that this was Billie Lurk, also known as Meagan Foster the one-armed woman who helps you escape at the beginning of Dishonored 2. She demonstrates a new unique blade, similar to Corvo’s but a lot cooler, and appears to have a new and improved eye and arm. She is quite technologically advanced.
The end of the trailer reveals the deadly assassin Daud, who fans of the series will know, killed Empress Jessamine Kaldwin and started this whole mess. Daud also holds the gift of the Outsider, and unlike Emily and Corvo, believes it to be a curse on people. Daud and Billie Lurk will set out to kill the Outsider, who by the way is a God, in the upcoming DLC. It is not yet known if Corvo and Emily will make an appearance in this DLC, being also gifted by the Outsider but it would be awesome if they did.
For those who may be confused as to how Daud is returning, you have to remember that the low chaos option of Dishonored is usually canon. Hence Daud is still alive (obviously) and Meagan Foster was not killed when she revealed her identity in Dishonored 2.
Death of the Outsider will be released on September 15th, 2017.
