This stand-alone expansion not only brings the Dishonored saga to a close in fine style, but does so with some intriguing tweaks to this series' standard gameplay. Set months after the end of Dishonored 2, Dishonored: Death of the Outsider casts you as Meagan Foster, aka Billie Lurk, who is a master assassin in her own right. Except this time around, you have only three magic abilities, but you have access to them almost immediately. They also recharge quickly over time, as opposed to requiring you to drink an elixir (though you still need them and food to replenish your heath). Otherwise, though, this plays much like the previous games. You have to use stealth and cunning to complete your tasks, as well as your fighting abilities when you fail at being sneaky.
Unfortunately, this also has many of the same problems as the previous games. The controls to pull off certain moves are a bit too loose and prone to causing deadly mistakes. For example, frantic fights will probably result in you accidentally using your spyglass, which limits your view and might get you killed. And if you sit at a reasonable distance from your TV, you'll have trouble reading the menus, your assignments, and the captions. Still, if you enjoyed the previous two games, you'll have just as much fun with the short story expansion that is Dishonored: Death of the Outsider.
