Being more of a pass-time and a novelty than a well balanced DLC, Dunwall City Trials provides owners of Dishonored many various challenges to hone their skills in combat, agility, stealth and puzzle-solving. Using a gallery of unlockable artwork as a reward for each challenge completed.
The challenges are measured using a simple point system, awarding the player for following specific guidelines in each challenge, either by killing hostile characters in creative ways or completing an obstacle course in record time.
Dunwall City Trials seems incongruious to the main campaign and other DLCs, the objective of "honing your skills as a master assassin" is irrelevent in a game with a campaign that's short in length.
The challenges are fun and encourage creativity and offer challenging opportunities that feel rewarding for the user when completed on a 3-star rating. So while Dunwall City Trials may feel out of place with the game on a whole, it is still a good experience for players who crave more of Dishonored than the main storyline can provide.
