Bethesda has announced a new story-focused DLC expansion for Dishonored, entitled The Knife Of Dunwall. In an interesting new perspective, players will explore new areas of Dunwall as the villainous assassin Daud, who's armed with "new powers, weapons and gadgets."
The Knife Of Dunwall has been dated for April 16th for all platforms (the European PS3 version will probably arrive a day later in line with the weekly update), costing $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points. We've got all the details after the break.
“After assassinating the Empress, and forever changing the fate of Dunwall, you embark on a search for redemption,” reads the blurb. “The Outsider reveals the key to your atonement, but who—or what—is Delilah?
“In the struggle to hang onto the last shred of your humanity, the choices you make will ultimately determine your fate.”
