To me, vanilla version of Dishonored was incredibly short and little disappointing - only 9 missions, from which only 2nd and 7th were only long ones, rest were pretty short and easy. Before story DLC came, Arkane decided to give some players fun with the powers and gameplay and make challenge maps that feel little like arcade mode - and it's actually great and gives the game much needed extention to playtime! Some of the challenges are really fun, like collecting all items in the manor without your powers, race against cart or shooting barrels, but others are way too much luck based, like the one where you collect clues to find your target - you can solve it by complete luck. Others can feel incredibly hard and cheap. Still fun though, but you must lower your expectations and don't expect story DLC or incredibly high quality.
Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials is the first DLC expansion for Dishonored. Dunwall City Trials is a challenge game, putting you in scenarios to utilize your powers and weapons to complete the objectives. Those objectives will be timed and scored depending on your skill. The challenges are difficult and rewarding to finish. The whole thing plays like a sort of "trial" mode, allowing you to use different combinations of effects to reach your goals. Gone are the impacts of your choices on the moral of the story, and for someone that uses stealth to complete the campaign, the action in this is refreshing. Graphics, sound and environments are exactly as expected, and this content is an isolated playground devoid of the story or extra NPCs/Items in the main campaign. Some might think this is a shallow game to play, but I liked the ability to do whatever I wanted with whatever weapon without having an impact on the main game. A worthwhile extra bit of game to pair with the already great Dishonored.
