With the launch of the first official campaign add-on for Arkane Studios' Dishonored now past us, it's time to have our say on what we thought of the newest addition to one of last year's highest-rated games and one we thought earned it.

We got our own James "Jickle" O'Connor to don the Daud clothing and take on the latest addition to Dunwall's story to see just what Arkane Studios has to offer in this latest campaign.
These missions don’t quite reach the same heights as the main campaign’s best moments, and we miss Corvo’s abilities more than we appreciate Daud’s (the constant companionship of that creepy heart Corvo carried around meant more to us than we realised), but there’s more effort, imagination and fun across these levels than plenty of big releases manage across their entire lengths.

While we continue to speculate on what exactly Bethesda has in store for the future, the studio has today announced that the second DLC for stealth-action RPG Dishonored is now available to play. Titled The Knife of Dunwall, the new story DLC will allow players to step into the shoes of the infamous assassins Daud, and live out a life of crime and punishment.
In The Knife of Dunwall you take on the role of Daud, the legendary assassin who killed the Empress, and access 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 of new weapons and powers that enhance 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.

Arriving next week is the first official campaign add-on for Arkane Studios' Dishonored, one of last year's highest-rated games and one we certainly thought very highly of.

In the downloadable content space, speaking strictly as a gamer who loves rich single-player experiences, it's great to see more narrative being poured into the world of Dunwall -- a gaming environment we talked heavily about in our review -- and one I feel has a lot of longevity in the storytelling department.

Ahead of the content's release next week on all three platforms, we caught up with Arkane's lead technical designer, Ricardo Bare, to talk about what you can expect with The Knife of Dunwall.
