Bethesda has confirmed the next piece of DLC for Dishonored as ‘The Knife of Dunwall’… which still doesn’t explain what ‘The Other Side of the Coin’ is.
One can only assume it’s now officially been named, as the DLC will arrive in April, and will be followed by more DLC entitled ‘The Brigmore Witches’. Both pieces of DLC will see the player in the role of Daud, the assassin who killed the Empress at the beginning of the main game. You will get access to his weapons, gadgets, allies and supernatural abilities as he “sets out on a journey for redemption.”
The content will be available “globally” on 16 April (but 17 April on PS3 in Europe), and will cost 800MS Points on Xbox 360 and £7.99 / €9.99 / $9.99 / AU$14.45 on PS3 and PC. A release date for the second part, which will conclude the story, is still to be confirmed.
