The much-anticipated Dishonored 2 game update will go live on Jan. 18 for Steam Beta members. This was announced by Bethesda along with information on what to expect from the update.
According to the announcement posted on the Bethesda blog, players can now customize the difficulty of their gameplay experience with the new difficulty options. These difficulty options can be adjusted by applying their preferences on more than 20 sliders. Through this, each player's game experience will be different from one another. For example, you can manipulate how long one ability or item, such as the Sleep Darts, take effect. You can even customize how many enemies will attack you all at once.
Aside from that, Bethesda also added the Iron Mode which will be very difficult than any other modes. That's because you won't be able to manually save or load your game when playing in this mode. Moreover, permadeath is also added to the campaign which means you really have to be careful with your every move. As Dishonored 2 lead designer Dinga Bakaba said, you have to "live with the consequences" of every decision you make whether they are right or wrong.
On the other hand, players will be happy that Bethesda listened to their requests by adding the feature which allows them to restart any mission they want from the very start. It can be remembered that before the update, this feature was missing causing a lot of disappointments to Dishonored 2 players. However, Bethesda didn't say if restarting your mission will still enable you to collect trophies and achievements.
PS4 and Xbox One owners will have to wait until Jan. 23 to get their hands on the latest Dishonored 2 Game Update. Stand by for more updates and details from Bethesda about Dishonored 2.
