Dishonored Death of the Outsider story

A brand new Dishonored: Death of the Outsider trailer has been released and it focuses on the stealth title’s story. Primarily, it focuses on the Outsider, and why players will be attempting to kill what Bethesda is calling “the ultimate target.”

Check out the video below:

Here’s additional context on the trailer from Bethesda:

Who exactly is the Outsider? Why is he such a beloved character in the Dishonored series? And do you actually have to kill him? Find out more in our latest video.

She’s killed for money. She’s killed for principle. She’s killed to survive. But Billie Lurk has a new reason to pursue her latest target: redemption. In Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, the fan-favorite character from the Dishonored series is playable for the first time ever – and she’s embarking on her final mission to take down a target like none other: the mysterious god-like Outsider.

For even more on Dishonored: Death of the Outsider, make sure you learn about all of the cool abilities you’ll be able to use in the upcoming stealth title. Here are a few of the powers that players have at their disposal:

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.

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