    Overall, Death of the Outsider ties up the first arc of Dishonored nicely; I have no idea where it’s going to go next, and all I can do is pray that Arkane don’t call it a day, because I adore this series. All other issues seem trivial in the face of it being such a well-crafted piece of art, and my main complaint is that there simply isn't enough of it. I adore this series, and this game. Buy it, play it, and love it.

    Death of the Outsider is a fantastic addition to the Dishonored universe that once again brings the broken city of Karnaca to life. Exploring Arkane Studios’ beautifully realised world feels fresh once again thanks to Billie Lurk, a morally ambiguous heroine with a flexible repertoire of skills that are a joy to experiment with. Death of the Outsider achieves more in terms of content and narrative than many games strive for, which is a fascinating achievement considering its meagre price tag.

    A fantastic expansion to an excellent game, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is a macabre joy to play from start to finish.

    A resoundingly confident continuation of 2016’s Game of the Year, Death of the Outsider is a worthy addition to the Dishonored pantheon.

    Death of the Outsider has neither the out-of-this-world level design nor the masterful story writing of Dishonored 2, but it does not fail to impress as it offers a true Dishonored experience and a satisfying closure to the “Kaldwin Era”.

    Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is a fitting resolution to a familiar story. Billie Lurk is an excellent character to showcase the underside of a world already known but with plenty of mystery left in it.

    This is a fairly good game with some clever tactical options. For those looking for stealth type games, it's probably worth a playthrough. TheThis is a fairly good game with some clever tactical options. For those looking for stealth type games, it's probably worth a playthrough. The teleportation and foresight mechanics are probably the funnest part of the game. They can be used not only to find goodies, but to escape been seen quickly, and get to areas otherwise locked away.

    The game does seem wanting of being in the 3rd person. For a stealth game especially, it's important to know one's position better than a 1st person can show you. Games like Styx or Splinter Cell Blacklist were much better in this regard and made the overall gameplay funner. In 1st person you're just more prone to being discovered when you think you are hidden or you could fall in a hole because you weren't specifically looking at your feet - which is resolved in 3rd person or real life because of peripheral vision.

    Another grievance against this game is a particular Contract where you have to execute every enemy on a level (except one specific guy). I never found everyone no matter how many times I combed it over. And I played the mission twice just to finish that contract. I've seen this same problem on a number of forums. The game doesn't tell you how many are left or where they are. A glitch of an enemy never spawning is a possibility with such prevalence of the problem. It's a very frustrating aspect of game design when the player is left not knowing what to do or obviously if the game is glitching.

    Dishonored Death of The outsider
    Improved gameplay in a just okay world
    Death of the outsider is a standalone expansion of dishonored 2 that seems to set out to end the story of this franchise...
    Here you play as Billie lurk, out to put an end to the outsider...
    aka the guy that gave everyone their fancy moves...
    Playing aggressively I beat this expansion in about 4 hours, so needless to say it’s pretty lengthy for what it is as I’m sure a pure stealth play through would double the size…
    Billie brings her own set of skills to the table..
    you’re still able to dash through the air like corvo, but she’s able to get her Eliza Thornberry on and talk to rats to get clues on her task at hand, steal the identity of npcs to sneak pass guards, and freeze time to play as an orb of energy like in beyond two souls where you can go through cracks to spawn a point for you to teleport to
    also mark bone charms around to buff your characters stats
    you have a sword and bolts at your disposal for combat..
    And thankfully this time there are no skill trees...
    and I say thankfully because every ability is unlocked through story progression and this means that the game forces you to use abilities for level progression like I’ve been suggesting the game does from the start…
    This means even the most aggressive person like me isn’t just going in there parrying and dodging bullets..
    I had to use my abilities to problem solve…
    the world is crawling with targets of course and even contracts…
    but unfortunately the world here in death of the outsider just isn’t interesting to explore..
    It’s probably the laziest design I’ve seen in a dishonored game…
    this is where this otherwise solid expansion is hurt the most...
    absolutely 0 memorable moments or levels…
    the end of the outsider deserved a much better send off than what he’s been given here…
    I still had a decent amount of fun disarming traps and outsmarting enemies..
    especially once I unlocked the ability to blast enemies in the air with my sword
    and of course I love the fact the game goes the rout I’ve always wanted with designing levels around abilities… and as a result abilities being able to be used frequently without consumables attached
    but these levels are just a bore making death of the outsider a very forgettable experience…
    if you’re a dishonored fan of course pick it up to see what potentially is the end to this series…
    but as a for stealth fans in general.. This if a very skippable standalone…
    I give Dishonored Death of the Outsider
    a 6.5/10

It also featuresIt's like a mini-Dishonored 2, only without runes to upgrade or acquire new powers, or even a heart to locate the bonecharms.
