Dishonored 2's first gameplay revealed

Been there, Dunwall.

Dishonored 2's first gameplay footage has been revealed at Bethesda's E3 press conference tonight.

Creative director Harvey Smith showed us several minutes of gameplay. This sequel is set 15 years after the original game and lets players choose between two playable leads: series stalwart Corvo and his former charge, the Empress' daughter Emily Kaldwin.

The gameplay demo shows us a host of new powers like a Mesmerise spell that distracts enemies, a telekinesis power that pulls people and objects towards you, and a Domino power that makes it so various enemies share the same fate. Knock out one of them and they'll all lose consciousness.

But probably the coolest addition is a device that lets you move back and forth in time. You can explore a manor in ruins, then hop back to when it was a happening, albeit a heavily fortified, place. The time piece presents players a lens into which they can peer into the alternate timeline before actually warping to it.

Dishonored 2 is due on 11th November for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Bethesda also had a bunch of new game announcements at their showcase, too, which you can catch up on with our E3 schedule guide.

Dishonored 2 uses Arkane's new Void Engine. It's quite the looker.
