Before we dig into the new video here for Dishonored 2 I am going to preface this here with a spoiler warning. If you were trying to keep all of the big story bits for the game a secret until you spun the game up on November 11th then you may want to skip right along as it looks like Bethesda as given us a very spoilery video for the story. It is quite a telling thing for the narrative that Arkane Studios has set up for Dishonored 2 and it does answer a few questions we've had but this will be your last spoiler warning before we carry on. Got it? Okay. Let's move right along then.
One more alert for those stranglers who just saw new Dishonored 2 video and skipped ahead. SPOILERS!
So here we have the launch trailer for Dishonored 2. It gives us another look at the world here but also digs into who the main villain truly is and just what looks like the "reset button" will be for Corvo when it comes to his abilities we've earned over the course of the last game. I won't place it in the text here to be kind to those who want to back out now but it is very fitting to the overall lore of the franchise and not something shoehorned in. It also looks like we may not be able to play Corvo right out of the gate here in Dishonored 2 if the video is any indication of a few things.
If after all of that you are still inclined to spoil what looks to be the beginning of Dishonored 2 and the work that Arkane Studios put in to shock and awe us, then I'll leave you to the launch trailer of the game. All of this could be taken out of context and editing could have prevailed here, at least in terms of true spoilers for the game, but it would seem a bit odd for them to do that with only a few days to go until launch. I guess we'll find out soon.

Did you watch the trailer here for Dishonored 2 or did you skip it to save on spoilers? Do you think that there were some editing tricks done here to entice or is this going to be the way everything plays out here?
