Emily and Corvo Will Have Different Powers in Dishonored 2

Choose your character wisely, neither play the same

Dishonored 2 will allow players to step into the shoes of both Emily Kaldwin and Corvo Attano. While Corvo's powers will feel similar to those who played the first game Emily's abilities will feel unique.

According to co-creative director Harvey Smith and lead designer Dinga Bakaba on Bethesda's website:

Meanwhile, all of Corvo’s original powers return from the original game, but they’ve been extended and enhanced. “You now have upgrades you can acquire, and you have a power tree,” says Bakaba. “I think players will have an interesting experience playing the game once with Emily and once with Corvo, because different powers mean different solutions to problems and a different experience.”

Emily's powers will reflect how she was raised. Unlike Corvo Emily was given the very best of everything and her weapons represent this treatment. 

These three pillars are reflected in Emily’s demeanor, her powers – even her clothes. “Emily doesn’t wear rags,” Smith says. “She wears an asymmetrical-cut jacket with gold embroidery befitting someone who grew up in a palace. She has taste and she has the finest tailors working for her.” Even Emily’s weapons reflect her status as an Empress. “When she’s carrying a pistol or a crossbow, they need to look like they were made by the finest craftsmen in the Empire of the Isles,” Smith says.

As seen at E3 2016 Emily has an array of abilities such as "Entity from the Void" which can be used to kill enemies or avoid them and Domino power which links the fate of two enemies. If one dies the other does as well.

Dishonored 2 will launch on November 11 for Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
