In case you’ve wanted to give Dishonored 2 a spin, but didn’t want to put money down, there’s good news for you. Starting April 6th, you’ll be able to play the Dishonored 2 free trial, which consists of the first three levels of the game. You can play the trial version on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Dishonored 2 came out in November, 2016 to fairly solid reviews. It even one awards for Best Action/Adventure game at the Game Awards 2016, as well as Game of the Year from PC Gamer. While it’s definitely a game that deserves attention, it didn’t exactly sell all that well. There might be several reasons for this, including no review copies sent before the game launched, and the fact it came out a little over two weeks before Final Fantasy XV, just as the hype began to pick up. The game was also criticized for the initial lack of New Game + and fairly low replay value, which has been fixed in the meantime.
Whatever the reasons, a good game got left in the dust. It seems that Bethesda isn’t ready to just give up on it, though. Starting on April 6th, you’ll be able to play a free trial of Dishonored 2 on all major platforms – PC (via Steam), Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It’s an ideal chance to get to know the game and decide if it’s worth your money. You’ll be able to play through the first three levels of the game, which should be enough to either make it or break it in your eyes. If you decide that you want to buy it, all of your progress will carry over to the full version. In other words, there’s pretty much nothing to lose. You can only (maybe) come to like Dishonored 2.
