Arkane's stealth-action game Dishonored 2 is getting a free trial on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. This trial will let you sample a portion of the game if you want to give it a go before drawing your wallet. This news comes from a press release.

We’re pleased to announce that we’re releasing a free trial for Dishonored 2 on April 6th! Available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, the free trial will allow players to dive into the first three missions of the campaign as either Empress Emily Kaldwin or the royal protector, Corvo Attano.
Dishonored 2 was met with positive reviews from the press, with some bit of controversy surrounding the PC version's (very poor) performance at launch. These issues were largely fixed in the weeks following the game's retail release. Despite its rough start, Dishonored 2 managed to get quite a few 'Best of 2016' awards.

Here's what the story of Dishonored 2 is about:

When the mad witch Delilah seizes the throne, the fate of your Empire is left hanging in the balance. As Emily or Corvo, travel beyond the legendary streets of Dunwall to Karnaca, the once-dazzling coastal city that holds the keys to restoring Emily to power. Armed with the Mark of the Outsider, how far will you go to hunt down your enemies - and take back what’s yours? How will you combine your powerful supernatural abilities, weapons and gadgets to eliminate your enemies?
Once the trial becomes available on April 6, you'll be able to download it to your system of choice. If you want to play the PC version of the trial you will find it on the Dishonored 2 Steam Page. The Xbox One version can be found here and the PlayStation 4 version can be found here.

Quick Take

I've not yet played Dishonored 2 because of the performance problems the PC version had at launch. The game kind of fell of my radar after that, but I'm definitely be checking the trial out to see what the current performance is like.

I've been playing games since I was just barely able to walk so I might as well write about them.
