Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall

     This morning we got Arkane Studios announced Dishonored information teased at yesterday- this being the 2nd DLC available in the series.  We now get to experience key moments in the game from a new perspective- from the view of the mysterious assassin Daud.  Presumably he is the Knife of Dunwall- and we'll get another person marked by the Outsider.  The teaser pic from yesterday IS of Dishonored's opening with the assassination of the Empress.

     What's to see now is if Daud can attain redemption or fall into darkness.   And I'm curious to know if we get to experience that moment where, as Corvo, Daud gets either a 2nd chance(warning) or death???  If so, will it be swayed by the dark or light path taken by the player? 
     As Daud we'll get Void Vision and a bunch of dark powers similar to those Corvo received.  I'm looking forward to finding more Bone Charms, Runes, and a wonderful assortment of new weapons such as stun mines, choke dust, and a wrist bow.  In particular, the ability to summon assassins is very interesting.  Calling in reinforcements could change things nicely in this game.
     We also get to explore both old and new areas of Dunwall.  Revisiting areas like the Flooded District, and introduced to the Rothwild Slaughterhouse, a location where we finally get to see the enormous whales that the oil is harvested from.

     Lastly-here's an interesting note from Bethesda blog- a small hint towards the 3rd add-on:
      On your search for answers, approach each mission with your own style. Your redemption – or your turn towards darkness – depends on your skills and the decisions you make. Discover the mystery behind Delilah in this stand-alone chapter, and then conclude Daud’s story in the upcoming final add-on, The Brigmore Witches.
The Knife of Dunwall releases April 16 for $9.99 (or 800 Microsoft points).
