New Dishonored 2 trailer shows us just how creative killing can get

Shivilisation.

A new trailer has been released for Dishonored 2, giving us a better look at the powers available to protagonists Corvo and Emily - as well the ways in which they can be combined to deadly effect.

The trailer, which boasts a body count rivalling that of your average Rambo movie, spends much of its time focusing on the powers of Emily Kaldwin, who is playable for the first time in Dishonored 2. While some of her powers seem to be direct answers to Corvo's - far reach being a restyling of the iconic blink ability, for instance - others are more exotic.

For instance, as you can see in the trailer above, Emily is able to summon a doppleganger to draw guards toward her, then swap places with that figure in order to continue the fight from there.

With the amount of time spent emphasising how effectively the powers can be combined, it's clear Bethesda is courting those players who made names for themselves on YouTube with impressively skilled runs of the first Dishonored. Whether they'll bite remains to be seen, but the potential to use Dishonored 2's powers in harmony certainly seems to be there.
