Dishonored novels, comics will bridge the gap before the sequel hits

Get reading before Dishonored 2's November launch

Bethesda Softworks announced that the world of Dishonored will soon receive its own comic and novel tie-ins. Starting this summer, Titan Comics and Books will publish two miniseries set after the end of Dishonored, leading into this November's Dishonored 2.

The first issue of the four-part comic series will arrive Aug. 3, according to Bethesda, with two more issues coming in September before the series concludes in October. The full collection will come to bookstores Nov. 29. The comics will depict assassin Corvo Attano's attempt to find a successor, 12 years after his adventure in Dishonored wrapped.

These events will take place before the events of Dishonored 2, the upcoming sequel starring a grown-up Emily Kaldwin, who first appeared as a child in Dishonored. But Dishonored — The Corroded Man, a novel set to release this September, will more definitively fill in the blanks between the first and second games. After Dishonored 2 launches later this fall, two more books focusing on both Corvo and Emily will arrive; they're set for 2017.

Bethesda revealed earlier this year that Dishonored 2 was coming to PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One on Nov. 11. We last saw the game at E3 2015, when Bethesda announced that Arkane Studios was developing the stealth action title.

Take a peek at the first issue's cover below.
