Dishonored 2 Game Update 2 Releases Soon

Those still on the fence about picking up Bethesda’s Dishonored 2, or those who seek some added challenge during their next playthrough, might be interested to know that Game Update 2 is about to hit the shelves. This new update is going to be available as a Steam Beta on January 18, 2017, and as a full release across the platforms on January 23, 2017. Full changelog is yet to be released but so far we know about two big features: custom difficulty settings and the ability to revisit already completed missions. A bit on that:

With the Custom Difficulty settings, you can further tailor your experience. Let’s say you’re a stealth player who likes to carefully explore every option… now you can move a slider that adjusts how effective you are leaning from behind a barrier when skulking around. With more than 20 different sliders, these Custom Difficulty settings let you fiddle with everything from how quickly Sleep Darts take effect to how many active enemies are likely to attack you at once.

Also included in the Custom Difficulty settings is a special slider for those seeking the ultimate challenge. Toggle on Iron Mode when starting a new game, and you’ll not only deal with permadeath but also won’t be able to manually save or load. “Iron Mode adds even more teeth to Dishonored 2,” says Lead Designer Dinga Bakaba. “You will have to live with the consequences of your actions, or die permanently because of them.”

Once you download Game Update 2, you’ll also be able to replay any mission you unlock after the update is installed – giving you a better shot at nailing that Ghost or Clean Hands run. Note: these selectable missions will retain the status of your playthrough at the start of that mission (character, chaos, runes, money, choices, etc).
