Dishonored 2: A new environment
In Dishonored 2, players will return to the rule of the islands, but this time most of the game will take place in a new environment. Although Dishonored 2 starts and ends in Dunwall, the depressing industrial city of the first game, most of the action take place in Karnaca, also known as the jewel of the south. Karnaca’s southernmost island of the empire is a dazzling metropolitan area inspired by the Mediterranean, with a culture and a very characteristic style.
“Our process when creating environments has many facets,” said Smith. “The art and design teams collaborate to provide identity to the place, with a culture that is reflected in the factions that live there, architecture, economics, climate, fauna and flora, and even food and songs “.
Karnaca comes alive thanks to Void Engine, a game engine created specifically for the game, created to enable the artistic direction and design that characterize Arkane levels to create atmospheric and full of possibilities for exploration areas.
