Bethesda and Arkane Studios have outlined the upcoming December update for Dishonored 2, which adds the game's New Game Plus mode. Game Update 1 releases in beta on PC today, with a full launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on December 19. The New Game Plus mode unlocks once you beat the game for the first time and allows players to create custom combinations of Emily and Corvo's powers.
The full patch notes are available here.
"Dishonored players have asked for it, so now New Game Plus is here for Dishonored 2," said creative director Harvey Smith. "If you've ever wanted to make higher-powered characters, now's your chance. If you've wanted to play Emily Kaldwin with Possession or Devouring Swarm, or Corvo Attano with Domino, now you can. We've been having fun with it here at Arkane Studios, and we hope you will too."
Game Update 2 will launch in January and add the oft-requested Mission Select option to the game. It'll also feature custom difficulty settings, letting players tailor their Dishonored 2 experience to their liking.
