Bethesda has recently announced a new downloadable content (DLC) for its latest game – Dishonored. According to ShopTo, the DLC will be available in three separate DLC packs, which will be periodically released in the coming months.
The first DLC is named 'Dunwall City Trials', and will see a simultaneous release on the PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, and the PC. The DLC is set to cost $4.99 or 400 Microsoft Points, which converts to Rs 266 approximately. DunWall City Trials will consist of ten challenge maps that will test out different abilities such as stealth, combat, and mobility. Some of the challenges include an arena battle where you will have to fight against waves of enemies, some drop-down assassinations, and a race that will test your speed. As is usual for DLC like this, Dunwall City Trials will also include new trophies and achievements, along with a global online leaderboard.

The second and third DLC for Dishonored will see a release in 2013 and will be more focused on story-driven campaigns. In the second DLC, the main focus of the story will be Daud - the leader of a group of supernatural assassins known as The Walkers. It will feature new levels set in Dunwall and you will discover Daud's weapons and powers. Bethesda will release information on the third DLC closer to its release.
The game is a lot like the older Thief games or Hitman games. The game focuses on stealth and allows multiple ways to finish your objective, along with a wide variety of weapons and powers. Dishonored boasts a number of features not often seen in games these days, such as the capability for pacifist runs where the player doesn’t kill anybody, and many different ways to finish missions, including stealthy runs where no one sees the character, or an all out balls-to-the-walls violent run where the player destroys everything in his path.
In August, Bethesda had released a gameplay trailer for Dishonored titled The Study of Stealth, where the developer explains the main stealth mechanics of Dishonored. The trailer explains various game mechanics, such as line of sight, stealth kills, and how to not make noise while walking. The video also shows some of the spells available to the player, such as the spell that allows a player to see the line of sight of any nearby guards or other characters.
Bethesda has released other videos in the past for the game, including a video that shows all the interesting and wacky ways to kill the enemies, one of which includes possessing a rat. The developer has said that it would be interesting to see what different ways players will come up with when using the abilities. The game boasts of many abilities and no one player will be able to have all the abilities in the game on the same character, claims the developer.
Dishonored is available on the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 and the PC.
