As revealed during Bethesda’s first-ever press conference at E3 2015, developer Arkane Studios is hoping to tide over the wait for the upcoming Dishonored 2 with next month’s release of Dishonored: Definitive Edition, and alongside pre-orders now being available for PS4 owners, a new option also allows those with the last-gen version to save a few bucks.
Pre-orders for Dishonored: Definitive Edition have officially gone live on the PlayStation Store ahead of the new re-release coming in late August, with the store page for the game pricing the Definitive Edition at $39.99 and digital pre-orders now open, and listing a file size of 30.1GB for the new release.
The new digital release will include the original Dishonored alongside all of the game’s post-release DLC, such as The Knife of Dunwall and The Brigmore Witches expansions, alongside improved visuals for the current-gen consoles. Pre-orders will also include a special “Dishonored Definitive Edition Static Theme” with purchases.
In addition to the game being available for pre-order now on PS4, another listing has appeared for a $20 discounted upgrade from the PS3 version of Dishonored, allowing those with a PSN account that owns a copy of the game for PS3 to purchase the new Definitive Edition at $20 instead of the $40 pricetag. The offer seems to also extend to those that acquired the game through PlayStation Plus, as the original game was made available for free in the Instant Game Collection this past April.
No listings for Dishonored: Definitive Edition have appeared just yet for Xbox One owners, though it’s a sure bet that we can expect to see a similar deal in place for those that own the original game on Xbox 360, as Dishonored was also available for free through Xbox Live’s Games With Gold program last fall.
Dishonored: Definitive Edition will release for PS4 and Xbox One on August 25th, 2015.
