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.

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:

      Think you forgot to close a link Alice!

      Looking forward to the DLC, though that's a long time to wait.

      This is the first game I remember really craving DLC to play more. Having played it 5 times through now, I want more!

        Honestly I don't care one way or the other about trials, but any form of new-explorable-area -- I am down for that no questions asked.

          Yeah, I would even take new meaningless missions with no plot other than to just get to your target ghost-style.

      Leaderboard challenges don't interest me, but the others sound great. More missions is awesome.

      Great! On paper this sounds like DLC done right. Will buy.
