What if Dishonored 2 were a clockwork pop-up book narrated by the Outsider?

Dishonored 2’s story in a compact but compellingly detailed form.

Watch on YouTube

This Dishonored 2 trailer introduces you to the main narrative themes and characters, while leaving a bunch of dangling story hooks to be answered in-game.

Also, it’s gorgeous. If only it were possible to produce a real pop-up book of this complexity and make it the special edition when Dishonored 2 launches in just over a week. You’d probably have to mortgage the house to pay for it but it could double as a coffee table, perhaps.

I must say for the record that despite my headline I don’t know if the Outsider is really narrating this video. It does sound a bit like him, with that whispery echo, but goodness knows. I hope he turns up a lot in Dishonored 2, and that there’s a like two dads thing with him and Corvo over Emily.
