Revealed by Bethesda at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo, Death Of The Outsider has been announced as the first “stand-alone adventure” in the Dishonored series.
Be a badass supernatural assassin and take on the role of notorious Billie Lurk as she reunites with her mentor Daud in order to pull off the greatest assassination ever conceived. To complete your mission you’ll have to journey deep into the seedy underbelly of Karnaca, where you’ll unravel some the city’s darkest secrets. Along the way you’ll infiltrate underground fight clubs and black magic cults, and retrieve ancient artifacts in a thrilling bank heist mission that sets the table for your greatest mission ever.
Arkane Studios’ Dishonored: Death Of The Outsider will launch September 15 2017 on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Starbreeze Studios have announced they’re giving away Payday 2 on Steam, absolutely free of charge.

The developers have also said that all future DLC packs and the upcoming Payday VR will also be free if you own the game, so you can’t really go wrong. Go get that!

Speaking at the Steam Dev Days event in Washington, Valve Software Software Engineer Jeff Bellinghausen has stated that the company plan to update Steam’s backend, expanding Steam Controller configurability options to the PlayStation 4’s DualShock 4 pad.
This means players will be able to fully utilise previously unavailable functions such as the PS4’s touchpad and gyro features, as well as complete control over button mapping for each game.
“Believe it or not, when you use the PS4 Controller through the Steam API, it’s exactly the same as a Steam Controller. You make the exact same API calls, you only get actions, not inputs, and the Steam API takes care of everything” said co-presenter Lars Doucet.
Full support for other controller types is also planned for the future.
