Dishonored 2 wants you to play it again.
Bethesda today announced a new update for its first-person stealth and assassination game. It adds a New Game Plus mode, which will enable players to go back through the campaign with the abilities they learned from a previous, completed playthrough. Dishonored 2 debuted for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in November. Free content like this could encourage players to revisit the game and potentially attract new customers.
“Unlocked once you complete the game as either Emily or Corvo, New Game Plus lets you begin anew as either character with access to each hero’s full suite of abilities plus all the Bonecharm Traits and Runes collected from your previous playthrough that you can re-assign to choose the powers you want,” Bethesda detailed in a press release sent to GamesBeat.
Dishonored 2 could use a boost to its sales. It failed to chart in industry-tracking firm The NPD Group’s list of the 10 best-selling games in November, while its debut in the U.K. was down 38 percent compared to the first game.
Another free update in January will add more content, including Mission Select and custom difficulty settings.
