Billie Lurk returns in DISHONORED: Death of the Outsider

DEATH OF THE OUTSIDER is the latest game in the Dishonored franchise, developed by Arkane Studios, published by Bethesda Softworks, and released September 15, 2017, for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.

In this installment, former assassin Billie Lurk rescues her mentor Daud, who asks her to kill the Outsider — a supernatural being who spreads chaos throughout the Empire. But is the Outsider really to blame for evil? Or is he just a convenient scapegoat for the dark urges within us all?

I concluded the story in eleven livestreaming sessions, which are available for viewing on my Youtube channel.

I was really stoked to see Daud and Billie again in DEATH OF THE OUTSIDER. When I played the original Dishonored and its expansions, Knife of Dunwall and Brigmore Witches, I liked Daud more than Corvo, and I liked Billie more than Emily in Dishonored 2.

DEATH OF THE OUTSIDER did not disappoint me. I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed Dishonored 2. The levels were well-designed, challenging and engaging, and the writing exceptional. I cared not only about Billy and Daud, but minor characters, too. I listened to every recording, and read every note and every book I could find. Mad props to Hazel Monforton and Anna Megill.
