The latest Dishonored: Death of the Outsider update comes from Bethesda’s blog, and it goes over Billie Lurk’s skills and other things to expect in the new game. One key difference between Billie and the other Dishonored protagonists is that Billie does not derive her skills from a mysterious mark from the Outsider, and instead uses artifacts from The Void.

This video interview reveals a lot about these new powers and gear:

All of this is also detailed in Bestheda’s blog. Here are some key quotes:


Displace. Like Corvo’s Blink and Emily’s Far Reach, Displace is Billie’s mobility power. Unlike Corvo and Emily, Billie’s power is based on placing markers in the world that no one else can see, then swapping positions with the marker.

Void Strike. This powerful charged-up attack will push your foes away from you, giving you more space to maneuver – or allowing you to assassinate an enemy if you take them by surprise.

Semblance. Steal someone’s identity, and use it to trick your enemies. Unlike Corvo’s Possession power, Semblance allows for a fuller range of actions, including anything from tricking an ally into unlocking a door to engaging in actual combat with another enemy.

Foresight. Whether you’re playing as a bloodthirsty assassin or a merciful agent of justice, you’ll want to get the lay of the land in Death of the Outsider’s intricately designed levels. Foresight allows Billie to pause time, leave her body, and see what lies ahead.

Gadgets and Gear

Voltaic Gun. Strapped to Billie’s wrist, this electrified projectile launcher can be upgraded to make it more powerful and versatile with a range of lethal and non-lethal ammunition types.

Hyperbaric Grenade. Toss this at your enemies for a non-lethal blast of compacted air.

Rat Whispers. Using a special talisman from the love of her life Deirdre, Billie can learn more about her world – and gather some useful clues – via the whisperings of the rats that roam the streets of Karnaca.

Hook Mine. Place this on a wall or floor or ceiling, and it’ll draw an enemy to it. The Hook Mine can be used non-lethally to subdue a person or hide an unconscious body.

Additionally, after beating the game, you’ll be able to mix Billie’s abilities with some of Emily’s and Corvo’s movesets from Dishonored 2.

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider will release September 15 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
