Bethesda announced that Billy and Daud will be returning for the Dishonored 2 expansion, Death of the Outsider. After Billy’s reintroduction in Dishonored 2, it was clear that Bethesda and Arkane Studios had plans for the elusive character, and now it’s been revealed.
Daud and Billy will be reuniting, this time to target the omnipresent Outsider, who has been responsible for the supernatural abilities used by Corvo, Daud, and Emily in the last installments. While the trailer exclusively contains cinematic footage, it seems likely that players will be playing as Billy herself. If Arkane stays true to form, it’s likely that players will have the opportunity to choose between both Billy and Daud has playable characters, with their own unique powers and gear.
It’s worth nothing that Dishonored‘s DLC content, The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches, introduced Delilah, Dishonored 2’s titular villain. If this is any indication of Arkane’s methods, we can expect to see Death of the Outsider expand on the lore of Dunwall, and maybe even introduce the villain of future titles.
Dishonored 2 Death of the Outsider DLC will be released September 15th, 2017.
