We’re in an age where a game being shipped doesn’t mean it’s done. It’s only the beginning sometimes, what with updates, free add-ons, and expansions. It’s unsurprising that Dishonored 2, one of the best games of 2016, is going to get some updates adding a new game plus mode and other features in December.
An exact release date for the free December Dishonored 2 update has yet to be announced. But, we do know some of the things that will be there. New game plus is absolutely coming. There will also be custom difficulty settings. Arkane Studios’ co-creative director, Harvey Smith, says they want to put a mission replay feature in Dishonored 2 eventually too.
In the meantime, we’ll see a quality of life Dishonored 2 patch soon. It’ll fix little errors and issues that make the game run at less-than-optimal levels. So maybe take your time, get close to beating the game, put it on pause until this December patch releases, then get ready for new game plus.
