The award-winning team at Arkane Lyon brings you ‘Deathloop’, an innovative take on first-person action that will allow players to choose their preferred playstyle, stealthily sneaking through levels or barreling into the fight, guns-blazing. Armed with a powerful roster of otherworldly powers, as well as an arsenal of savage weaponry, players will combine these deadly tools for takedowns that are as striking as they are devastating. By choosing their powers and weapons, players will fight to survive this deadly game of hunter vs hunted.

‘Deathloop’ transports you to the mysterious island of Blackreef, where an eternal struggle between two extraordinary assassins will determine the island’s future. As Colt, you must find a way to put an end to the timeloop trapping the island in an endless cycle, all while being hunted by the island’s inhabitants. Using your powerful weapons and abilities, you’ll need to take out 8 key targets across the stunning, yet chaotic, island before the day resets in order break the loop once and for all. But lurking in the shadows is rival assassin Julianna whose sole mission is to take Colt out and keep the loop going. Learn from each cycle, try new paths and approaches, and break the loop.

 

Each new loop in ‘Deathloop’ is an opportunity to learn from the past and adapt. Finding clues and uncovering hints is key to taking out targets before the day resets. Discover relationships, learn schedules, and do whatever must be done to gain the necessary knowledge. Players will apply what they’ve learned in previous loops to try different paths, choose to sneak or attack, and devise other new strategies to eventually reach their targets. If at first you don’t succeed… die, die again.

Full of masked villians ripped straight from You’re Next complete with animal masks. A grindhouse like treatment mashed-up with a graphic novel this game looks like a load of fun. Exclusively launching for PS5 and PC later this year.  Check out the trailer below.
