Dishonored: Death Of The Outsider Won’t Let You Play As Daud; SJW Dissent Rises
Dishonored Death of the Outsider
(Last Updated On: August 9, 2017)

Arkane Studios’ Harvey Smith provided a little bit of commentary about the upcoming release of Dishonored: Death of the Outsider. The game is scheduled to release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One starting September 15th.

The video is only two skimpy minutes long, taking up very little of your time while also highlighting some new screenshots, concept art, and gameplay footage for the upcoming expansion featuring the disabled, black lesbian, Billie. Check it out below.

The revelation of not being able to play as Daud and being stuck with Billie didn’t sit too well with everyone.

Arkane really wanted to make sure they checked off as many tokens on the list as possible. The inclusion of Billie as the only playable character in the Dishonored: Death to the Outsider expansion has really set the game’s community ablaze with discourse and dissension. This is mostly due to the fact that a lot of people see it as Arkane pandering toward SJWs.

The topics on the forums are rife with almost nothing other than debates and arguments over Billie’s sexuality, her being disabled, and, of course, her being black.

The discussion about the Social Justice Warrior topic has led some people to claim that anyone who isn’t for it is just trolling, with user Coldhands responding to one user who was asking why the conversation in the forums has been completely overwhelmed with arguments over SJWism, writing…

“It’s all just trolling and bull****. The alternative is that some people are actually so fragile and insecure that they’re genuinely upset about the race/gender of the playable character in a series where that’s never once been important.”

In one of the countless threads continuing to surface for the game, Rogal Trump blatantly put into words what many gamers have been mentioning in the threads and comment sections, writing…

“Why do so many people hate Lurk?

 

“Because she’s a hideous tranny avatar of diversh*tty, and everyone is tired of this crap being pushed by the (((usual suspects))) like an aggressive telemarketer who won’t leave you alone.

 

“Rather than brainwashing people into accepting trannies and other morbid forms of “diversity,” the unwelcome intrusion of sjw narratives into our shows, movies and games has caused a huge backlash. It has GREATLY increased the public’s hatred for the (((progressive))) narrative.“

Forum discussions, YouTube comments, imageboard rants and Twitter memes don’t always reflect what the sales will be like for a game. Dishonored: Death to the Outsider is priced at $29.99, so it’s possible it might attract people who don’t care about SJWism either way.

Sales for Dishonored 2 already pale in comparison to sales for the original Dishonored, with the first game having moved more than 3 million copies on PC alone, while the second game can’t even break the 1 million mark on PC, as noted by Steam Spy. Arkane could be risking losing even more of their audience members by going all-in on this route, attempting to pander to those who claim to be progressive.

We’ll see how well Dishonored: Death to the Outsider sells when it launches on September 15th.

    How do you get from a game that the main character is less of a character than your average medal of honor character and talks less than gordon freeman to a a character that is made for diversity?

    Dishonored was never about the main character, instead it wanst about story either, the dialogues in that game are written by retarded monkeys.

  • Mooki

    all SJW injected movies bomb and so do the games.

    ME:A anyone ? :*)

  • GuyGuysonEsquire

    Did anyone even like that char in the first place?

    • Diablo2000

      Billie? If they didn’t play Daud’s DLC for the first game, there’s a small chance that yes. (More often than not, it’s an “Meh”) If they did, they most likely still hate the fucker.

  • Pratim Gupta

    Can’t even play a f*cking game without SJW and Anti-SJW sh*tstorm.

    • EroBotan

      the one who started the shitstorm is always SJW

      • Pratim Gupta

        From there, its total all out war, and we are like “This war of mine”, innoncents caught between two assholian factions

        • Who started injecting the SJW crap in the first place?

          Think about that before you start s*itting on the people who are fighting back.

          • Pratim Gupta

            And we start tearing each other apart like animals, we must stand together to face the storm, not as Alt-right but as Gamers.

          • So basically you’re saying be the good guys, stay silent and do nothing because “muh morals”.

            Yeah, that’s worked ever so well over the last 5 years hasn’t it?

          • Pratim Gupta

            Nope, instead of fighting head on, infiltrate the enemy and destroy it from within, start a civil war between them and have them destroy each other. killed by their own stupidity.

          • EroBotan

            those who want to be sneaky can go sneaky, those who prefer to fight head on can keep doing it.

          • instead of fighting head on, infiltrate the enemy and destroy it from within

            While that’s technically a good idea, it’s virtually impossible to do now, because SJWs/feminists have taken over and have complete control of every sector of the West.

            Anyone who even speaks against their SJW ideology is immediately bullied, lynch-mobbed and fired from their jobs. It’s like a pack of lions hiding in the bushes ready to pounce on the deer as soon as it makes the mistake of wandering into their territory.

            Look what happened to James Damore after he wrote that memo.

          • Pratim Gupta

            This world should be cleansed in Nuclear fire already

          • ThyPancakeConsumed

            No just complete global saturation or forced stroggofication.

          • Pratim Gupta

            It should have been like Fallout, world purified by the power of Atom

          • Pratim Gupta

            It should have been like Fallout, world purified by the power of Atom

          • EroBotan

            the problem with left leaning gamers who claim that they’re not SJW is that lots of them seems to spent their time hating the other non-left leaning (center & right leaning) gamers instead of fighting SJW.

        • EroBotan

          so you’re suggesting that we stay quiet while SJW ruin our hobby? isn’t this like victim blaming?

          • Pratim Gupta

            This is what Billy said, tribal factionalism, we are tearing each other apart instead of uniting as Gamers to fight the invaders

            “a house divided against itself cannot stand” – Abe Lincoln

          • EroBotan

            we are fighting the invaders here and you’re the one who told us to stop.

        • durka durka

          good man they are censoring youtube. Its not two assholian faction the establishment is the asshole and they are telling you the other side is litteraly hitler. Remember how they were acting about trump and what he ended up being.

  • DizzyGear

    No Arkane, You are not Hideo Kojima who got away with pulling the bait and switch in MGS2 and Snake being an old man in MGS4.

    You see there was actually allot of thought behind those decisions. With MGS2’s story being eerily ahead of its time in hindsight and Old Snake’s age actually having some subtle but not crippling drawbacks in gameplay besides the whole metaphor behind it.

    This is just pandering. It kinda reminds me of that part from the hilarious manga Welcome to the NHK where they tried to come up with the ultimate moe character and somehow ended up with this:

    what the problem with billile burk er i mean lurk?

    the term i use is shoehorning isnt it obvious.

  • Feli Aslan

    And then their game crashes. And then their studio crashes. And then they cry. And then they have to do mediocre Star Wars Games.

    • Disqusted

      Starring minority Mary Sues who kill white males.

      • durka durka

        hey they are honest, they are the bad guys in that game.

    • Mooki

      And then they blame Trump.

      • Feli Aslan

        We actually really could need a Trump Videogame.

        • Mooki

          I would love one.

          What would we call it ?

          And would it have MP ? We could have AK’s against another team who would throw their pacifiers at us trying to whine and cry you to death or something.

          I vote for a MAGA ult where you char would just shout MAGA and whipe the other team while they are performing their ultimate, namely “trampling on the U.S flag while screeching as a group”

          Basically Overwatch MAGA edition the game. “OverSJW” maybe , i kinda like that.

          • Feli Aslan

            I think it would be cool if Trump travel back into the time of the first islamic expansion and fight the islamists with a hugh sword that symbolizes his love for western values. I mean, I think it would be really intense. Most people imagine the muslim invaders in a very humanic way, because they think of people like Saladin or the ottoman empire, but what they don’t understand that this only happened after kurds or turks took control. Kurds and Turks are human, you know? They are physically no different than europeans, while arabs are more like animals, they fight with teeth and claws and start mindlessly raping their enemies, because they have no human nature. So it would be a story of a hero fighting against inhuman beings to save the surrounding cultures from beastlike animals.

    • Seeing that happen will be good pleasure to my eyes.

    Billie was piece of shit traitous bitch in Daud’s dlc, who sold others to Brigmore Witches. Lots of women nowadays pretends to be nice and innocent but are ready to kill men, children and even other women for enjoyment, money or things they have no comprehension of.
    Fiction was always society’s mirror, whats happening with this piece of shit expansion is obvious. I bet they gonna include creepy 40 years old virgin privileged male trope as well.

    • Alistair

      the fact she black and disable and plot to sold out men to be killed is a femmists SJWers wetdream.

  • SevTheBear

    So a Meh sequel, gets expansion standalone with SJW elements in hopes that it will score some brown nose points? Okay this kind of virtue signalling horseshit is the reason why the gaming industry is having a hard time with it the majority of Gamers. Nobody outside a VERY small group want’s this https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2d00987554abc8713dcf80944ddf145f02a1e316fc34e9b5999e8a5bcec189ea.png

  • Gozu Tennoh

    Ok gameplay with mediocre first person storytelling? What is there to get excited about in the first place??

    If she was a Lesbian, black girl…………with a big rack and thicc booty, everyone wins and they’ve instantly got a better game.

    • If she was a Lesbian, black girl…………with a big rack and thicc booty, everyone wins and they’ve instantly got a better game.

      It’s funny that Nintendo of all companies figured this out, but SJW companies couldn’t.

      • Gozu Tennoh

        I hate to admit it but they definately seem to be catching on.

        If they escalate what they’ve been doing I may need to buy my first nintendo product in 15 years.

      • but SJW companies couldn’t.

        I’m not even sure that it’s a case of them not figuring out the sales/marketing anymore.

        They really do seem to be more prioritized with pushing their SJW agenda over sales profits.

        But then I guess that kills two birds with one stone for them. Find something they hate -> infiltrate it -> push their agenda -> ruin the sales -> ruin the company -> company closes down. They win regardless.

  • Disqusted

    What is a Daud?

    What’s with the black lesbian Kano? Weird and ugly game.

  • tajlund

    I am not thrilled. I don’t have a checklist of reasons I don’t want to play as Billie. I just don’t like her. I hated her in the first game and felt at best ambivalent toward her at the end of the second. She just was not a good, nor interesting character. Daud had a lot of layers and facets. He was interesting. Hell, even Corvo (as silent as he was in the first game) had facets and so did Emily. Billie was nothing but anger and traitorous thoughts.

  • I’m not even going to pretend to be the good guy now.

    Social Justice, feminism, “diversity”, “inclusiveness”, “minorities”, LGBTQ, Mary Sues, Fat Pride, etc.

    I want all that f*cking crap out of video games and out of all entertainment media.

    And I don’t give a f*ck even if it’s “well written”, because it’s the same pile of SJW crap at the end of the day.

    Either give people a choice or kick this SJW feminist rubbish out of video games.

    • They’ve already had choices, but if they make a choice that does not follow the ideology, then it gets frowned upon with outrage and/or displeasure.

      I’m not going to tell you not to worry, but I bet a bunch will notice that the industry’s going to get divided to hell as time goes on while developers pull shit like this.

    • Gozu Tennoh

      If you’re not an sjw, you’re still the good guy no matter what so preach on, brother.

    • SevTheBear

      You are not a bad guy. Having an opinion is only evil if you are an virtue signalling jackass with double standards. I agree with you. Pandering is one of the worst things we have in gaming right now. But you know what? Let them. Let them waste their money, time and talent (what little they have) on this kind of shit, get meh reviews and mediocre sales.

      • mikebrand83

        * SJWs demand pandering to their preferences
        * Devs/publishers capitulates and panders to them in their titles
        * Gamers who are not hardcore fanbois lose interest and start turning to other titles
        * SJWs aren’t actually interested in the titles, and don’t really contribute to sales numbers
        * Sales fall below expectations
        * SJWs tell them that this is because they didn’t pander to SJWs hard enough
        * SJWs within the devs/publishers agree that it’s because they’re not pandering hard enough

        … Wash, rinse, repeat.

      • Pandering is one of the worst things we have in gaming right now.

        Absolutely.

        I’m not sure how far you go with the political issues of SJWs, but I can tell you that this obnoxious practice of pandering and kowtowing to SJWs and feminists reaches out far and wide beyond video games into every sector of Western society.

        Companies, businesses, organizations and institutions all do it. And it’s all down to the fear-mongering caused by constant whining and bullying by SJWs/feminists.

        One example of this is the firing of James Damore by Google for writing that memo. As soon as it was made public within the company, the whiny p*ssbaby female colleagues threatened to not turn up for work until “something was done”, which in other words, means that they wanted him fired for them to return to work, because they felt “unsafe”.

        The situation is a hallmark of Social Justice. It’s nothing more than blatant authoritarianism whilst being a “victim” at the same time.

        And for trademark SJW double-standards, you just know that had it been a female employee who wrote a memo saying that men should be paid less for the same job because of the “wage gap”, these same SJW whiny p*ssbabies would be celebrating the memo and laughing about it.

        • SevTheBear

          I try to stay up to date with the SJW shit storm we live in. Sometimes I really wish there was a magic *remove all morons* button. But yeah the SJWs types are not making it easy to have anything in peace.

    • Daniel Ream

      I don’t know. I like having options in character creation because if I’m going to be staring at an avatar for the next 40 hours, I want it to be a hot redhead with pale skin, freckles and a huge rack. I’m secure enough that I don’t need to be Batman. I’m good with Pippi Longstocking’s hot older sister.

      • I like having options in character creation because if I’m going to be staring at an avatar for the next 40 hours

        Yes, I like options as well. That’s why I said:

        “Either give people a choice or kick this SJW feminist rubbish out of video games.”

      • Mr.Towel

        I played mostly female characters on World of Warcraft for the same reasons. If I’m gonna stare at a butt on my screen from months on end, better be a hot one.

        • Mooki

          That line is a trope by now tbh.

          • Mr.Towel

            And still true.

          • Mooki

            Well it is not that i dont agree with you :*)

            I usually make males tho but in games like GW2 which has nice models i did enjoy having a few pretty looking female toons for that very reason i admit 🙂

    • Alistair

      you not even consider evil even if you swore.

      i say the left is evil all the crap they do and suppose to have the moral backbone.

      matter of fact we fucking saints compare to them.

    • Disqusted

      “Pride” shit in general needs to go away. I wouldn’t feel proud if I had to keep shoving “pride” stuff into everything under the sun.

      I saw this earlier. Dunno if it’s real, it’s so hard to tell anymore:
      https://i.redditmedia.com/xlZTag_95_4dvlI9oBdyoFvZk09n3D_XiUgTpTZXS-Q.jpg?w=639&s=d19aacb9cfdcc531626db93173bb0f34

      If they didn’t want people driving over it, maybe not paint it on the f**king road? It’s like they wanted to be driven over and play the victim.

      Anyway, it’s Buzzfeed, so you can safely assume it’s fake news. It’s also another example of the media instructing idiots on how to perceive everything as a direct attack.

      • durka durka

        what the hell is this trash? The roads are to be driven on, shame on people driving on roads but by their stupid logic why would you ever paint the roads as the gay pride flag, if you dont want right wingers to drive their car over it?

        Its like these people are too stupid or they are doing everythin in order to get to play the victim.

      • Cinj

        If I found some shit like that on a road, I’ll be sure to do a burnout on it.

    • durka durka

      I remember playing games for the gameplay and the main character was irelevant, what happened to that?

  • Good thing I never thought about buying the games after the first one, lol. After I heard about Anita Sarkeesian making Harvey Smith have her part of her dumb ideas planted in Dishonored II, it was definitely a never-buy for me. Plus, I can see the people who wrote their comments on the YouTube video being unaware of this Reg. Left ideology being shoved into this standalone DLC game while I see one of them saying that they don’t give a flying turd, which is pretty damn obvious.

    Oh, and that Coldhands guy is full of shit. Saying those who’ve been expressing their disapproval are fragile and insecure while calling their actions trolling. How mature of him.

    • ThyPancakeConsumed

      Steam forums are full of sjw’s, entitled brats and other scum who thinks they are above everything and everyone.

  • Diablo2000

    Gotta admit, I was looking foward playing Daud again. I greatly enjoyed his character and playstyle in the Dishonored DLC. Add that to the fact this is a glorified expansion that for some reason is getting a standalone release and I think I will wait it out for reviews… And most likely 50% price drop.
