Dishonored: Dunwall City Trials, being released in December for $4.99 (or 400 Microsoft Points), will include 10 challenge maps that will test and track your combat, stealth and mobility skills. Ten distinct trials await challengers – including an arena battle against waves of enemy AI, a gravity-defying run of drop assassinations, and a race against the clock.

The second and third add-ons for Dishonored will be coming in 2013 and will each feature story-driven campaigns. Pricing on these two packs will be revealed closer to launch.

Daud, the leader of a group of supernatural assassins known as ‘The Whalers’, will be the focus of the second add-on pack, scheduled for release in early Spring 2013.

Bring the boom with Gun Runners’ Arsenal

Gun Runners’ Arsenal releases tomorrow on PSN, Xbox LIVE, and Steam. Today Josh Sawyer returns with details on some of the most explosive weapons in the Mojave.

Come back tomorrow to check out the crazy melee weapons available.

Esther, GRA Fat Man – Two new Fat Men (Fat Mans, Fat Man and Fat Lady?) for your consideration. The new GRA Fat Man takes “traditional” Fat Man mods like the Little Boy Kit, but has the added capability of firing our custom Mini-Nukes. If you’d like to go extra-large, pick up Esther (shown above), a unique model. In addition to firing all of our custom Mini-Nukes, it has a built-in blast shield that is surprisingly effective.  Use it to march on a small army, or toss Tiny Tots with reckless abandon, allowing the blast shield to soak up most of the collateral damage!

Low Yield, Big Kid, and Tiny Tots Mini-Nukes - The Fat Man. You’ve been carrying that huge lump of meta around for how long, and how many times have you fired it? Once? Twice? Seventeen? Whatever the frequency, it’s still not enough. Trust us, we’re the experts. That’s why we’ve brought you three new Mini-Nuke variants. Low Yield is your “everyday” light payload, good for liquidating irritating raiders or the occasional horde of Nightstalkers on the horizon. Traveling through Quarry Junction? Try our Big Kid variant for extra Deathclaw-eradicating power (warning: range is reduced). Last but certainly not least, the Tiny Tots are the answer to a question no one asked, “What if I want to decorate two city blocks with a scattering of miniature mushroom clouds?”  N.B.: requires GRA Fat Man or Esther. Specialized Mini-Nukes cannot be fired from a standard Fat Man.
