Dishonored 2 won Best Action Adventure Game at The Game Awards 2016 tonight. The stealth action game beat out Hitman, Hyper Light Drifter, Ratchet & Clank, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.
Raphael Colantonio of Arkane Studios took the stage to accept the award, noting that the developer has been around for 17 years. Creative Director Harvey Smith could not make the show to accept the award, but Colantonio thanked him and the rest of the team for all of their hard work.
Though it already won Best Action Adventure game, Dishonored 2 will receive an update sometime this month that adds a New Game+ mode and custom difficulty settings for players to adjust the difficulty on subsequent playthoughs. Bethesda will detail both features sometime in the next few weeks, as well as announce a release date.
Dishonored 2 received a near-perfect score of 4.5 out of 5 here at Twinfinite, citing fantastic level design, a rich environment, and interesting combat.
