    Dishonored: Death of the Outsider captures everything that’s great about Arkane’s assassination series, while also showing that it can still surprise. Smart tweaks improve the core gameplay and, if you’re worried about having fewer powers to play with, you can always go back through it with Corvo’s moveset when you’re done. As far as mission quality goes, it peaks in the middle - the fourth mission has us revisit a location from Dishonored 2, albeit slightly reworked, and the final mission feels much more linear than what’s come before. Still, it all leads to a satisfying conclusion that neatly ties up every plot strand that’s been hanging since that political assassination, whoever you decide is responsible.

    Death of the Outsider doesn't offer a better story than Dishonored 2, but more freedom in terms of gameplay creates better entertainment.

    It lightens up on the story consequences from your actions and allows a much more liberated approach to your gameplay in which I found myself gleefully slaughtering guards more than creeping around corners.

    With its weak main characters the class and storytelling depth of Dishonored 2 is out of reach for Death of the Outsider. Having said that, you definitely can look forward to a suspenseful and stealthy return to Karnaca.

    ​Death of the Outsider is a good DLC: it has the same, excellent gameplay of the series but it lacks real new features.​

    Dishonored: Death Of The Outsider is a solid, inventive, yet somewhat subdued capper to the stories from the previous Dishonored games. While the smaller scope can be felt throughout, the approach to allowing players to express themselves as a master assassin is just as strong as ever. It's uncertain where the series can go from here, but this stand-alone release proves that Dishonored is still a remarkably designed stealth-action game with much potential, that offers players the chance to be creative in ways they'd least expect.

    For an expansion that took nearly an entire year to arrive and priced at a premium, Death of the Outsider fails to deliver.

A few memorable levels with interesting problem-solving choices, new and simplified magical powers to play around with, and a fun deep-dive into the occult underbelly of the fictional world. The story kept me playing long past bedtime, I wanted to know what would happen next at nearly every moment. Engaging and fulfilling as a final chapter for a handful of characters I have grown to love. Expand

    Loved this expansion pack. I hope there will be Dishonored 3. Pickens approves.

    Arkane never disappointed me with their Dishonored games and this one is no exception. Rich levels, new powers and the contracts system allArkane never disappointed me with their Dishonored games and this one is no exception. Rich levels, new powers and the contracts system all contribute to an immersive adventure. Playing non-lethal and stealthy is as viable as it was in all the previous games in the series. Billie somewhat lax in customization compared to Corvo/Emily but she makes it up for it partially with the abundance of bone charms you encounter along the way which can be used to empower certain play stile.

    Though the Outsider's back story let me down a bit and in my opinion deserved more refinement, the game is developed with a lot of attention to detail and the zealous explorer is dully rewarded with enriched experience.

    An 'almost satisfying' , 'OK' DLC. Gameplay mechanics is solid as before but something is missing, may be Billie's story lacks depth. CouldAn 'almost satisfying' , 'OK' DLC.

    Recommended, but just barely. This "game" is pretty much DLC for Dishonored 2, exactly how The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches wereRecommended, but just barely. This "game" is pretty much DLC for Dishonored 2, exactly how The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches were DLCs for Dishonored. In terms of game mechanics, interface and design, the game is virtually identical to Dishonored 2. In fact, in some cases even limited. This means really good, because those things were nailed in D2, but there's just no progress that I'd expect from what is essentially marketed as a separate game. Level-wise it was extremely disappointing, with effectively only 3 new levels. They were fairly well-designed, but nothing outstanding like in D2, and they were mostly rather hollow, with random, very repetitive loot, and random, very repeatable enemies, most of both not actually contributing to the story in any way, but just acting as fillers. And finally, the writing in my impression was probably the dullest of the whole franchise, so much that I was glad when it was finally over.

    Recommended ONLY if you've played through D2 and are not yet sated.

    This is just another SJW infested game. They make male characters look weak and pathetic and make the women look strong. Pushing propaganda.This is just another SJW infested game. They make male characters look weak and pathetic and make the women look strong. Pushing propaganda. The levels themselves are 60% rehashes of Dishonored 2. One hour in and I was already bored of the bland copy pasted levels and SJW story. Do NOT recommend, even if you're a fan of dishonored. Expand
