What Is Deathloop?
As per the game's storefront synopsis:
Take on the role of Colt as you search for a way to put an end to a timeloop trapping Blackreef while being hunted by the island’s inhabitants.
Use powerful weapons and abilities to take out eight key targets across the stunning and chaotic island before the day resets.
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 to break the loop once and for all.
Expect time-bending, supernatural assassination fun, then. There are going to be multiple ways to play Deathloop, which does not come as a surprise from Arkane. The line between stealth and chaos will likely be just as fun to walk as it is in Dishonored, but we may just end up going for the latter with the game supporting PS5's Dualsense controller's adaptive triggers.
Deathloop will feature the usual pistols, shotguns, and rifles, but also some quirky-looking offerings too. Find out all we know here.
