Blink-182 will also perform after the showcase. For those in Los Angeles, a Standby Line will open at noon (CST) and offer non-ticket-holding fans the chance to get in the show, located at The LA Hangar, 2627 Medford Street. For those who don’t make it in, an outdoor area will be set up for 300 people to check out a stream.
Arkane Studios will be returning to Dunwall this November with Dishonored 2. Scheduled to launch on Friday, November 11, Dishonored 2 will once again put players in the shoes of infamous assassin Corvo Attano, but now players will get the chance to play as his royal charge, Empress Emily Kaldwin. Combat will once again feature a mixture of melee, medium- and long-range arms, and supernatural powers. Missions also have a branching structure, with the story shifting in response to the player’s actions. More details are in the current digital issue of Game Informer, while gameplay will premiere during Bethesda’s 2016 E3 Showcase, which will be streamed at 9 p.m. (CST) on June 12 on Twitch and Youtube.

Gamers can now get the complete Dishonored collection for $39.99 with Dishonored: Game of the Year Edition. Available for 360, PC, and PS3, the set includes the original game as well as all four DLC add-ons: Dunwall City Trials, The Brigmore Witches, The Knife of Dunwall, and Void Walker’s Arsenal. The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches make up a two-party side story featuring the empress’ assassin (and the cause of so many of protagonist Corvo’s troubles), Daud.
The final act in the Daud saga, and the final add-on for Dishonored, is available today with the release of The Brigmore Witches. The pack, now on Live Marketplace and Steam, and later today on PSN, sees Daud on the hunt for the leader of the Brigmore Witch coven, Delilah. He must work with feuding gangs the Dead Eels and the Hatters in order to get closer to the coven before eventually facing off against Dishonored’s protagonist, Corvo Attano. All spells and abilities unlocked in The Knife of Dunwall will carry over as well.
