Dishonored


 

Just like the first Dishonored got its own spin-off starring a minor character from the main game, so too is Dishonored 2 getting Death of the Outsider. This standalone adventure stars Billie Lurk, one time associate of the assassin Daud and other-time disguised ship captain. She’s got her own set of powers to use to take on a powerful foe: the mysterious Outsider who pulls the strings throughout every other Dishonored story so far.

Read on to get the lowdown on all the new releases, including our picks for the most exciting games out this week. And if you’re wondering about future release dates, check out EGM’s full list of gaming release dates in 2017 and beyond, updated regularly as new dates are announced.

EGM’s top picks for this week:

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider (September 15th)

Available for: PS4, Xbox One, PC
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Developer: Arkane Studios

Why we’re excited: Dishonored 2 was an excellent step forward for the series, and while we’re certain Death of the Outsider won’t be quite as dramatic, it’s still another helping of Arkane’s excellent stealth action gameplay. Hard to argue with that. The early buzz: No reviews have broken yet, but we’d be surprised if this didn’t score at least average marks. Arkane doesn’t really do disappointment. End of an era: The team behind Dishonored has said Death of the Outsider marks the definitive end of the story that began in the first game. If Bethesda brings the series back, don’t expect to see Corvo, Emily, or even the same cities or time periods you’re used to.

Metroid: Samus Returns (September 15th)

Available for: 3DS
Publisher: Nintendo
Developer: MercurySteam, Nintendo EPD

Why we’re excited: We haven’t had a great Metroid game in a long while, and if it takes going back to 2D to get there, we’re willing to compromise. After all, something has to keep us tided over until Metroid Prime 3 arrives in… oh, let’s say 2026. The early buzz: Reviews have been strong across the board so far. EGM’s Evan Slead gave it a 9.0 in his review, and the Metacritic average currently sits at 88 out of 100. Picking up Steam: Co-developer MercuryStream is actually launching another game, Raiders of the Broken Planet, just 10 days from now. Suffice it to say, those Spaniards have been busy.

Divinity: Original Sin II (September 14th)

Available for: PC
Publisher: Larian Studios
Developer: Larian Studios

Why we’re excited: Listen, no one on staff touched the first Divinity: Original Sin, but we’re hip enough to know that it was a big step forward for CRPGs. The sequel sure seems like it’ll continue that tradition. Just look at that screen! So many icons and bars and stuff! And the character is so far away from the screen! (Are we doing a good job feigning enthusiasm?) The early buzz: No reviews yet, but the PC version of the original notched an 87 average, and it’s Enhanced Edition managed an even more-impressive 94. Spooky scary skeletons: This is where we usually share some neat fact we happen to know about the game, but all we can remember at the moment is that you can opt to play as a skeleton. The skeletons have hair. It’s A-plus work, truly.
