Dishonored DLC Brigmore Witches Launches Today
Today, Arkane Studios' assassination game Dishonored officially ends. The Brigmore Witches, the last downloadable content, is being rolled out on all platforms worldwide for 800 Microsoft Points or $10.
"In The Brigmore Witches, you continue your journey as the legendary assassin, Daud, and bring his twisted narrative that began with The Knife of Dunwall to a close," Arkane says of the new content. "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."
The DLC ends with a late scene from the main campaign: Daud and Corvo's battle. Depending on your actions throughout the DLC, Corvo will either kill or spare you. Hope you kept your Chaos low.
While Brigmore offers the same combination of stealth and combat that made the campaign so compelling, playing as Daud is a different experience. He can daze enemies with choke dust or disintegrate them with arc mines. He can also summon friendly assassins in battle. Furthermore, his Blink ability works a bit differently than Corvo's:
If you played through Knife of Dunwall, the upgrades you purchased for abilities and equipment will carry over. Your player actions and Chaos will carry over as well. You might not want to import, then, if you plan to play Brigmore differently than Knife.
Daud's two-part campaign was the only story-based DLC released for Dishonored. If you're bored after beating Brigmore, you still have Dunwall City Trials. That's just a series of standalone challenges, though.
The only gamers missing out on today's release are PS3 owners in Europe. They'll have to wait until their PlayStation Store update tomorrow.
