If you played Dishonored, you already know that there are more than one way to kill or evade from your enemies. The fun part is, you are able to combine your supernatural abilities and powers to do so. My favorite combo was Devouring Swarm and Bend Time.
While playing Dishonored 2, we will be able to choose between grown up Emily Kaldwin and Corno Attano. Each has different supernatural abilities and different ways to use them. Also, we know that Emily has a power named as Domino which can be use to link some enemies and kill them with one blow. According to director Harvey Smith, these powers can be combined in ways they haven’t predicted!
We love it when our powers have flexible utility. We already have some startling ways that people have combined them that have shocked us. This is the emergent gameplay thing that we all love.
Lead designer Dinga Bakaba gave an example about using these super power chains: “Someone at Arkane came to me a while back with a question: ‘Should spring razormines be triggered by your doppelganger?’ Usually I don’t answer those questions except to say ’why do you ask?’ And he said ‘I summoned my doppelganger and I tried to place a mine nearby because I wanted to do a trap,but I actually put the mine on the doppelganger.’ So when the enemy arrives they run after her and – bam! When they catch up, they explode in gibs”. Well, I can’t wait to see that with my own eyes, I tell you.
Also, seems like Domino power can be used on your doppelganger, then you can just link your enemies to your doppelganger. And BOOM! It was not planned but it is glorious.
Dishonored 2 will hit PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One on November 11. Can’t wait to combine these supernatural powers!
