In Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall take on the role of Daud, the legendary assassin who killed the Empress. This second add-on pack for the award-winning first person action game from Arkane Studios gives you a new perspective on Daud, and access to his weapons, gadgets, allies and supernatural abilities.
After assassinating the Empress, and forever changing the fate of Dunwall, you embark on a search for redemption. The Outsider reveals the key to your atonement, but who—or what—is Delilah? Accompanied by the Whalers, your loyal band of mercenary assassins, your search will take you through never-before-seen districts of Dunwall as you face off against new and terrible foes. Employ a unique arsenal that enhances Dishonored’s dynamic combat, mobility and stealth systems. In the struggle to hang onto the last shred of your humanity, the choices you make will ultimately determine your fate.
New Powers, Weapons and Gadgets The mark of the Outsider empowers you with unique supernatural abilities. Call upon the Whalers to assist in combat with ‘Summon Assassin’, track down hidden Runes and Bone Charms with ‘Void Gaze’ and learn to use new variations to powers, including ‘Blink’. To aid in your dangerous exploits your customized arsenal of weapons and gadgets will include Chokedust to daze your enemies, whale oil powered Stun Mines to shock your targets, and a concealed Wristbow to launch sleep darts and explosive bolts.
Explore More of Dunwall Make your way through the Legal District and infiltrate the Rothwild Slaughterhouse, a steaming factory filled with colossal whale carcasses and their hulking butchers. Revisit the decaying Flooded District, the location of Daud’s hidden base, first seen in the original game. Return to the scenes of key events in Dishonored with a new perspective, including the fateful moment that sets off Corvo’s journey.
Choose Your Path 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.

Knife of Dunwall is generally a fantastic addon. This is not one of those DLCs that we call the jump for consumers cash. Especially if you take into account the price dictated by Bethesda and its relation to the content. Arkane Studios not only allowed us to return to Dunwall in a great way but also offered a decent game. The biggest flaw so far is a bit slow paced story, however, it gains momentum in the second feature DLC, The Brigmore Witches.
The Knife of Dunwall tells the first half of the story of Daud. It's short but introduces a variety of new weapons and abilities. Storywise, it's pretty good. However, I prefer the second half of the story in the Brigmore Witches DLC. Overall, it's a solid DLC that's definitely worth picking up if you liked the base game Dishonored.
Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall is the second DLC released for the game Dishonored. This time, you take control of another assassin, the murderer of the empress, Daud. This DLC expands the story of the main game and prepares you to the sequel: Dishonored 2, as most of the events, both in the main game and the DLC's have an impact in the sequel. It's a little bit short but its worthwhile for a low price and to know more of the amazing lore of this steampunk world. Recommended.
If you want to play Dishonored 2, you absolutely must play both parts of this DLC, because sequel is more or less based on what happens here. Graphics are fine, just like they were with original, same goes for sound and everything else. This is the first part of the story DLC out of the two, it has 3 missions. It doesn't sound like a lot and while first mission could turn you off, because it feels little boring (although huge whale hanged on ceiling makes it somewhat worth it), the other two missions make it worth the price of admission. There is everything you could want from Dishonored and it's as high quality as the main game was. Although beware, because it is buggy and sometimes non-leathal way in mission 2 can get buggy and your target will never be "eliminated", because he will be stuck at doors on endless cut-scene loop. Also, it sucks a little it is not implemented into main game and instead it's kinda in it's own side-game menu. Other then that, I strongly recommend it, because it makes Dishonored much better game!
Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall is a fun, if unessential, DLC to the original Dishonored game. The Knife of Dunwall plays from the perspective of Daud, one of the main antagonists of the original, and mirrors the timeline of the story of Corvo. In other words, while you were Corvo, The Knife of Dunwall tells of what Daud was doing on his side of the city. The gameplay is almost exactly the same, with a few minor additions. Once again, the story can split, depending on your style of gameplay (combat vs. stealth). Environments are actually pretty fantastic and different, and the story works well. Mainly The Knife of Dunwall is for true fans of the new Dishonored franchise. It's not required, but adds a different depth to the story. It is worth it for the story twists that it and Brigmore Witches add to the original Corvo storyline. If you loved the gameplay of the original, or just want more, The Knife of Dunwall is well worth the time.
