Summary: One of the most interesting characters from one of the most interesting games finally and appropriately gets his due in The Brigmore Witches , as the curtain is pulled back on Daud, Dishonored ‘s most famous assassin.
Excerpt: Combat gets a boost in this latest addition to the core Dishonored experience, which follows reformed assassin Daud further in his search for the leader of the witchy clan. The Brigmore Witches lets you taste welcome new wrinkles in battle, like the “Pull” ability (think Star Wars’ Force Pull),...
Pros: +Cursed Charms and the Pull ability are interesting additions that would’ve been great to see in previous chapters., + Some of the most intriguing characters we’ve encountered yet.

Cons: Familiar mission design, Corvo's actions are irrelevant

But if you never played Persona 4, you probably won’t get much out of it. Persona 4 laid the groundwork for the mysterious TV world where demonic shadows emerged from peo...
Conclusion: You’re aware that the end is near for the entirety of this episode, and there’s no real incentive for hunting down extras beyond personal validation. Daud is perhaps a little overpowered for how few enemies the levels contain too, and although there are a few neat twists on the established formula –...
Excerpt: Mit The Brigmore Witches steht nun endlich der zweite Story-DLC zu Dishonored: Die Maske des Zorns zur Verfügung. Die Geschichte um die Hexen von Brigmore ist die direkte Fortsetzung des ersten Download-Inhalts, der euch unter dem Titel The Knife of Dunwall in die Haut des Assassinen Daud schlüpfen...
Pros: Dauds Fähigkeiten kommen besser zum Tragen, viel Erkundungsmöglichkeiten, alternative Wege, zahlreiche neue und versteckte Gegenstände, schön gestaltete Umgebungen, interessante Geschichte
Cons: ein paar kleine technische Macken, Dauds Figur bleibt weiterhin blass
