Somewhere within Homefront: The Revolution–beneath the choppy framerate, the hackneyed narrative, and the half-explored mechanics that are hastily introduced then forgotten just as quickly–exists a solid, cinematic shooter.

Dishonored 2 begins 15 years after Emily Kaldwin is crowned Empress of Dunwall, as she flees the city after her claim to the throne is challenged by an otherworldly usurper.
