One of the odd oversights in the otherwise-excellent Dishonored 2 is the lack of replay options. Outside of save games, there's no way to dive back into a level and explore. This is perplexing, because exploring the intracate levels and finding new methods to tackle them is part of the fun. And a mission replay was available in the first game. According to Bethesda Softworks, a replay option will be in the upcoming December update.
"Next month, Dishonored 2 will offer even more options to play your way. In a free update, Dishonored 2 will include a New Game + mode and new custom difficulty settings. We'll have more details on the content of this update (including the exact release date) in the coming weeks," said Bethesda in the blog post.
Dishonored 2 developer Arkane Studios is already at work on a host of fixes and changes for the title. Yesterday's release of Patch 1.1 fixed some smaller problems, like mouse sensitivity being dependent on framerate, a problem with AMD cloth physics, and the CPU task priority bug. The fixes are aimed primarily at fixing performance issues and bugs on the PC version. Arkane Studios creative director Harvey Smith has also taken to Twitter to provide some info on upcoming tweaks to the game.
"We hope to support that," said Smith on Twitter when asked about a mission replay option.
Smith also said that Arkane would be updating Dishonored 2 so leaning is a not a toggle, allowing players to hold down a button to lean instead.
Arkane Studios remain committed to fixing Dishonored 2's issues, which is good, because it's a great game.
