Death of the Outsider ultimately emerges as a strong chapter in one of the best modern action/RPG series thanks to gameplay refinements and dedication to its dark fiction. This standalone expansion doesn’t revolutionize the series but instead does something more important, navigating the familiar to bring everything to a satisfying conclusion.
Death of the Outsider is Dishonored at what I would argue to be its most pure – tightly designed, with the fat trimmed where it needs to be while still maintaining the strong environmental storytelling and amazing sandbox gameplay the series is known for. Couple that with a surprisingly effective story that wraps up both the main thread and the side plot of the Knife of Dunwall and his protege, Death of the Outsider delivers what I consider to be the best Dishonored experience yet.
It was wonderfully satisfying to have more Dishonored to play, even if Death of the Outsider doesn’t quite meet the high bar Dishonored 2 set in story or mission design. Even though it’s a shorter and slightly shallower game, there are some exciting new abilities and interesting changes to the energy system, and the freedom from consequences of Chaos further encourage experimentation and freedom. All in all, it’s a worthy end to the story that began five years ago.
