Three Dishonored DLC packs announced

If you've been clamouring for more Dishonored, you're in luck, but you'll need to hold on a while longer. Publisher Bethesda today announced three DLC packs for Arkane's sneak 'em up, two "story-driven campaigns" and one challenge mode with online leaderboards. The latter, Dunwall City Trials, will be up first, arriving in December at a reasonable $5. Dunwall City Trials will pack 10 challenge maps, including, in Bethesda's words, "an arena battle against waves of enemy AI, a gravity-defying run of drop assassinations, and a race against the clock." At a time when every single-player game seems to 'need' some sort of online engagement, trials with leaderboards is pleasingly reserved. The second pack will introduce a new playable character in the form of Daud, the head honcho of mystical assassins 'The Whalers.' He'll have his own weapons, powers and gadgets, and you'll get to roam around new areas of Dunwall. The yet-unnamed DLC is due in "spring 2013." The third pack, due later in 2013, is a mystery for now. Here's one screenshot of the Dunwall City Trials accompanying today's announcement:
