Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios released a new Dishonored 2 video featuring the protagonist, Corvo Attano.

Corvo Attano, the Royal Protector returns in Dishonored 2, but Corvo isn’t just older and wiser. He has a full suite of enhanced powers, which he’ll need to take back the throne.

Find out more about Corvo, his motivations and his upgraded powers, with new gameplay and exclusive insights from Creative Director Harvey Smith and Lead Designer Dinga Bakaba after the break:

“The Rat Plague is a distant memory. Empress Emily Kaldwin rules over the Empire of the Isles. And, 15 years after the events in the first game, Corvo Attano is still protecting his daughter from all kinds of threats.

Now, in Dishonored 2, the Royal Protector and Spymaster will face what might be his toughest challenge yet. When an otherworldly usurper steals the throne, you must take on the role of Corvo Attano once more, and take back what’s yours.”

If you have played the first game in the series, you’ll experience lots of similarities if you choose Corvo for your first playthrough in Dishonored 2.

Corvo has evolved quite a bit from the first game. He’s older, more experienced, wiser. “Corvo is like a man reflecting on the winter of his life,” says Creative Director Harvey Smith. “He’s both the badass supernatural assassin we wanted him to be, and he’s very thoughtful.

“Corvo comes back with all his classic powers, made more active and more beautiful through our new engine technology, and each is also improved from a game design perspective,” says Lead Designer Dinga Bakaba.

“Players are really going to be torn: the new thing with Emily or the nostalgic thing with Corvo,” Smith says.

Dishonored 2 launches worldwide on November 11, 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
