Dishonored 2’s art direction is so strong, it’s doing just fine in a live action setting.

The latest Dishonored 2 trailer is a bit of a break from the few gameplay videos we’ve been seeing recently. This live-action affair is called Take Back What’s Yours, and it basically translates what you’ll be doing in the game to a live-action format.

Just like the Doom and Fallout 4 trailers before it, this one shows how video game supernatural abilities can work with real actors.

Dishonored 2’s tricks are a bit more exciting than those in Doom or Fallout 4, and the filmmakers made sure to show them well.

The blink ability is used, right before Emily uses the synchronised kill skill. The general story is also weaved into the trailer nicely, though it’s not something we don’t already know.

Dishonored 2 is out November 11 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
