Details Released on Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches

More of The Outsider that you crave.

For those of us still wanting more Dishonored before the inevitable full sequel is released, Bethesda has released initial details about the next and final piece of DLC. Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches will continue the story of master assassin Daud that began in the earlier add-on, The Knife of Dunwall. All of the abilities, choices, and chaos that you made in the earlier story will carry over to The Brigmore Witches and you’ll hopefully experience the confrontation with Corvo from Daud’s point of view.

Early blurbs on the Dishonored website imply that there will be a new set of powers available to Daud called “Pull” that will allow you to “quickly draw your enemies towards you and suspend them helplessly in air or use them as a human shield.” This is in addition to Daud’s other unique Outsider-granted abilities that allow him to summon other assassins and to hunt for runes with his Void Gaze. The addition of new powers is promising since the ones available in The Knife of Dunwall could be nearly maximized by the end of a play through.

It’s also teased that there will be three new levels to explore, although at least one of them (Coldridge Prison) sounds like it may be a recycled location from the main game. A similar repurposing of Daud’s headquarters was used in The Knife of Dunwall. Even though our review of the last DLC package wasn’t anywhere near as glowing as our review of the original game, it was still worthwhile for fans. Hopefully this extension and conclusion of Daud’s story will make the two episodes feel like a complete and well-told story. We’ll find out when it releases on August 13, though we'll have some hands-on time with it before then at this year's QuakeCon.

Press Release


We’re pleased to announce that Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches, the final add-on pack for the critically-acclaimed first-person action game developed by Arkane Studios, will be available worldwide on August 13, 2013 (PS3 in Europe on August 14) for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC for $9.99 or 800 Microsoft Points.

In The Brigmore Witches, continue your journey as the legendary assassin, Daud, and bring his twisted narrative that began with The Knife of Dunwall to a close. After discovering the identity and intentions of Delilah, the leader of the Brigmore Witch coven, you set out to disrupt her from completing a powerful ritual that will spell your doom. Having already been betrayed by your lieutenant, Billie Lurk, you must rely on feuding gang factions—the Dead Eels and the Hatters—to negotiate your way through previously unseen districts of Dunwall en route to Delilah’s stronghold. Regardless of the way you reach your destination, one thing is for certain – you will finally answer for your treacherous actions and fall before the mercy, or punishment, of the Royal Bodyguard and Assassin, Corvo Attano. Additionally, your power, weapon and item upgrades, Chaos level, and player actions from The Knife of Dunwall will carry over via a compatible save file option.
