Ahead of the release of Arkane Studios' Bethesda 2 on November 11, publisher Bethesda worked with the studio to put together a spotlight video highlighting Corvo Attano, one of the game's playable characters.

Corvo will feel familiar to fans of the first Dishonored, but he has new tricks up his sleeve that speak to the wisdom and experience he acquired from the debut adventure.

"Corvo comes back with all his classic powers, made more active and more beautiful through our new engine technology, and each is also improved from a game design perspective,” says Lead Designer Dinga Bakaba.

Meanwhile, Arkane and Bethesda disclosed requirements for the PC version of the game. You can view those below the body of this article.

Dishonored 2 will release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on November 11. For more information, check out Shacknews' contributing editor Cassidee Moser's impressions. "That’s the beauty of Dishonored 2; it doesn’t make demands, simply lays out what it needs and allows you to go about completing the objectives on your own and in your own way," she wrote. "Add in a handful of new, useful powers and a seemingly interesting set of all-new characters, and Dishonored 2 is shaping up to be the ideal sequel; a game maintaining the elements that made the original great, while building on it to make a more solid and concise experience as a whole."
