has shared a video and details today on Dishonored's Dunwall City Trials allowing fans to put their supernatural skills to the test alongside a Challenge Maps overview, as follows:
With Dishonored, the team at Arkane Studios
let you decide what type of assassin you wanted to be - you could focus on stealth and remain in shadow, or simply leave a trail of blood across the game's missions.
However you played, by the game's end, you had become Dunwall's greatest assassin.
But how do you stack up about against the rest of the world?
In Dishonored's new DLC, Dunwall City Trials, all your skills will be tested across 10 challenge maps. Providing a challenge to all levels of players, these maps will require you to creatively combine your supernatural abilities, weapons and gadgets with well-timed stealth and agility tactics.
Read below for a quick overview of the Challenge Maps:
A true test for accomplished crossbow users, you'll need to quickly eliminate targets as you move through the level. Just be careful not to kill any civilians.
Collect the map's four clues without being discovered to investigate which NPC is your assassination target. Complete the level by successfully completing the assassination.
Bend Time Massacre:
Each round of this challenge map begins with your character peering through glass and learning your assassination goal.
Once you break the glass, the "Bend Time" effect will begin and you'll need to race against the clock to complete the objective. Attain higher scores by completing the Bonus Round at the end of each objective.
Sneak into a mansion (easier said than done) to recover six Clockwork Eggs and as many valuables as you can. Make sure you're not detected - three strikes and you're out.
This one is for Blink experts. With the clock running, touch as many light beacons as you can.
Be quick on the draw to destroy waves of oil tanks tossed from above. You'll have to be handy with the steel if you know what I mean.
A true test of agility, you'll need to be faster than a speeding bullet in this race to outrun a locomotive.
Back Alley Brawl:
Put all your offensive abilities to the test as you battle hordes of enemies, round after round.
Kill Chain Massacre:
Kill a high number of enemies in a continuous chain using the environment and/or your powers. Take your time before each round to map out a killing-combo strategy. Once you make your first kill, it's a race against the clock.
Perform a series of drop assassinations as you try to reach the end of the run as fast as possible. Perfecting this challenge is no easy task, but it ends with a surprise twist.
As you complete challenges, you'll receive a completion rating and score and be able to see how you stack up against the competition via leaderboards. Additionally, Dunwall City Trials unlocks 10 new trophies, including:
