Dishonored 2's new trailer is all about Corvo's powers and possessing corpses

There's only a matter of a week and a few days before we can step back into the boots of Corvo Attano and play as Emily Kaldwin in Dishonored 2 (opens in new tab).  It seems fair then that we get a further look at some of Corvo's new powers and abilities, one of which includes an upgrade to possession that means you can hide inside corpses.  This might sound small but means you can literally create your own hiding spots by killing as you go. See? Disturbing and useful. 

Also discussed in the video above by creative director Harvey Smith is the upgrades to Corvo's rat swarm power that will let you have not one just one miniature plague but two at your command. There's even an option to have them follow you like the Pied Piper. Just what you've always wanted. Dishonored 2 is out on November 11.
