Dishonored: Death of the Outsider - Improvisation Run - Part 3

Let us continue our adventures as Billie Lurk, master assassin on a quest to kill a god.

Not only do we finish up The Bank Heist, one of the greatest levels in the series next to Crack in the Slab, Clockwork Mansion, and Lady Boyle's Last Party, but we only return the Observatory and tussle with the occupying Overseers.

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider - Improvisation Run - Part 2

Our mission to assassinate The Outsider continues, and there's very little that anyone could do to get in our way.

As I mentioned in the episode, Death of the Outsider raises an interesting philosophical and moral question. The Outsider, as a god, and see all possible timelines except those where he no longer exists. When he finds an individual who exists at a moment of great divergence, he grants that person power, usually in the form of his mark. Though he hopes that they use that power for good, he is aware that there is always the chance they will abuse their new abilities.

Dishonored: Death of the Outsider - Improvisation Run - Part 1

Although Emily's adventure has come to an end, the world of Dishonored marches on. People are still destitute, and suffering is commonplace. It is in this part of town where Billie Lurk, infamous assassin, lives and thrives.

This is her story, and if you wish to see it unfold live, be sure to follow my Twitch channel for updates.

There are two changes made to the Dishonored formula in Death of the Outsider, and they have a massive effect on the player experience.

Dishonored 2 - Improvisation Run - Part 6 (Finale)

We're finally made it. At long last, we have attained a way to defeat Delilah and save the empire.

It was a ton of fun to perform this improvisation run on stream. As we keep playing other, similar games on stream, you can always follow me on Twitch to keep abreast of what we're playing. Be sure to pop in and say hello.

There's not a whole lot more to say about Dishonored 2 that we haven't already discussed in previous episodes.

The most interesting aspects of this final mission are all the myriad callbacks to the previous Dishonored game and its DLC. Since the vast majority of the mission takes place in a map that was used for both Mission 1 of Dishonored 2, and the prologue and Mission 6 of the first game, it's only natural to reference what came before, as a treat to those who have stuck with it since the beginning.

Dishonored 2 - Improvisation Run - Part 5

We're getting close, friends. The finale is in sight. We only have a few objectives we need to complete before we proceed onto the finale.

Time travel/manipulation tends to follow one of two possible interpretations in fiction: Either there is one overarching timeline (which is either immutable or manipulated by events occurring in the story), or each change results in another timeline shooting off from the one the change took place in. While Dishonored 2 appears to follow the first model for now, Death of the Outsider will call that into question.
