Dishonored: Death Of The Outsider - Launch Trailer

Oct 5, 2017Overall, 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.
Sep 18, 2017Death 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.
Sep 20, 2017A fantastic expansion to an excellent game, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider is a macabre joy to play from start to finish.
Sep 19, 2017A resoundingly confident continuation of 2016’s Game of the Year, Death of the Outsider is a worthy addition to the Dishonored pantheon.
Sep 28, 2017Death 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”.
Sep 20, 2017Dishonored: 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.

Nov 15, 2021This 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.… Expand
Mar 25, 2019Too small to be a game and too big too be a DLC, so we'll call this "Dishonored 2.5." Nothing of interest has developed graphics wise, thisToo small to be a game and too big too be a DLC, so we'll call this "Dishonored 2.5." Nothing of interest has developed graphics wise, this game did come out very fast after the second game, so no surprise there. They also took the liberty of reusing some levels, which would be a problem if the game costs $60, but instead it costs $30. Again, this is more like a D-2.5 not a D-3. You get what you pay for.
Billy isn't that bad of a character, just a little underwhelming. A person said that because she is in the game it is just an SJW mess. Not really. There is no racial tension in the game, unlike some other games and movies. Billy is just Billy.
This game does well on presenting new and creative powers. You don't feel like Corvo or Emily with a new face.
Its story is not half-bad and how the Outsider was dealt with was phenomenal.… Expand
Dec 11, 2020Despite being marketed as a stand alone experience I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone who isn't a huge fan of the franchise, otherwiseDespite being marketed as a stand alone experience I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone who isn't a huge fan of the franchise, otherwise you will have no stake in what happens.
This game manages to use three of the most interesting characters in the Dishonored franchise and not do anything with them, or change them so completely you wonder what's the point.
Billie - despite being the lead - gets no motivation of her own and no character growth. Nothing she does seems to be her own choice save for the one and only choice the game let's you make and even then her reasoning seems absent.
Daud, despite being alive and so having to be low chaos Daud, seems to have regressed to even before Dishonored 1. His reasoning to kill the Outsider makes no sense considering what he says in his own DLCs, and what the story tells you has happened to him since that time makes no sense either. It genuinely seems like the people who wrote this forgot there were other stories that featured him and simply started with a blank character. The few things that happen with him in the rest of this game make little sense either.
The Outsider meanwhile has changed from the enigmatic figure he was in Dishonored 1 or the slightly more emotional but still somewhat detached figure he was in Dishonored 2 to an emotional volatile wreck. Perhaps that would have worked if they had spent any time on his character in this game, explored his motivations a little, but they do not.
The story itself is very unsatisfying as well. Like I said before, Billie is missing any motivation of her own or character growth, meaning you're left with an empty shell you will only feel attachment to if you played D1 DLC and D2. Nothing you do in the game feels like your accomplishment either because Billie is literally handed everything she needed to succeed. The whole plot goes 'we need to do this, well here's this MacGuffin we suddenly know exists and poof it's in your possession/ reach.'
There are strictly speaking targets in the game, they'rejust not mentioned and not part of your mission. You can go after them and some will have minor consequences in the world but really the game does not really focus on that. The only thing it focuses on is getting the next plot (often literal) device.
The contracts are extra things you can do, but they really only offer some filler. They have no real consequences, are really bare bones when it comes to plotting and have no choices to be made. "Get this" "kill this person" that kind of thing.
I avoided doing the ones that required killing during the first mission because I had managed to avoid all spoilers, meaning I was unaware that this game actually got rid of the main mechanic of the Dishonored games. The Chaos System.
I will never understand why they got rid of their defining mechanic. It boggles the mind. I still finished my first playthrough as what would have been low chaos, but it felt a bit hollow. After all succeeding means nothing if there's no chance for failure. The second time around I killed everything in sight and man was it easy. High chaos has always been easier, but in this no chaos playground it was ridiculous. It did make Billie's final morality speech hilarious.
The entire plot only has one choice to make - you probably know which one - and you can always unlock both endings. Doesn't matter what you did or didn't do, there's only one dialogue option that determines the outcome. And what a disappointment that was.
First off, despite there being hints in the other titles about what the Outsider's end could mean for the universe this takes place in, this game seems to ignore all of that. It fails to explore any of it. It even fails to explain to us why Billie would or wouldn't kill the Outsider. The ending also felt very abrupt, with just two epilogue slides that clearly leave the door open for Arkane to milk this franchise that probably should have stopped after the D1 DLCs rather than repeating plots in D2 and now refusing to stay consistent with their own storytelling in DOTO.
The gameplay is fine, though far too easy. The ng+ is badly implemented, still sticking you with preset powers you can't even upgrade. That along with the lack of a Chaos system or choices really kills the replay value.
The game also reuses so many assets from Dishonored 2, even a whole level. It even reuses its own levels.
If you're interested in this game, I'd wait for a sale because at 30 bucks I felt duped.… Expand
Sep 28, 2017Less than the sum of its parts....
With the series in full swing after two solid games, the decision to expand this DLC into a stand aloneLess than the sum of its parts....
With the series in full swing after two solid games, the decision to expand this DLC into a stand alone release seemed like a decent idea.....but its just not worth your time or the extra price.
Everything about D:DOTO seems hugely lackluster compared to the two main titles. The writing is weak, the game play is far less nuanced and choices you got used to in Dishonored 2 have been removed.
Now maybe you arent a big Dishonored fan and wont miss the game play from Dishonored 2 because you didnt play it......well, i would definitely tell you to avoid D:DOTO because you will be lost. You are expected to know a lot of background info you could only have gotten from playing Dishonored 1 & 2.
Characters that have been subtly fleshed out over the coarse of the franchise suddenly act in ways that seem odd.....im looking at you Mr. Outsider....
The main character, who could have been an interesting protagonist, just wasnt.
Overall, its just a far inferior version of Dishonored. It would have been better off being made into a smaller, more focused, less expensive DLC.
Save your money and either wait for a super sale, or until the inevitable "Game of the Year" edition Dishonored 2, which includes D:DOTO.… Expand
