Here’s what we learned from State of Play’s Deep-dive into Deathloop
Arkane Studios and Bethesda Softworks revealed a nine-minute gameplay trailer for DEATHLOOP. It premiered at PlayStation’s State of Play on July 8 and offered a new look at the savage assassination game.
DEATHLOOP transports you to the mysterious island of Blackreef, where an eternal struggle between two assassins will determine the island’s future. As Colt, you have to find a way to put an end to the time-loop trapping you and the island in an endless cycle. As you traverse the island, you’ll find yourself being hunted by the island’s vicious inhabitants.
Colt will have access to awesome powers, including teleportation, telekinesis, and the ability to turn back time. Using your powerful weapons and abilities, you’ll need to take out 8 key targets across the stunning, yet chaotic, island. All before the day resets to conclusively break the loop.
Just be wary of Julianna. An assassin that’s controlled by another player or an AI and whose sole mission is to take Colt. The two seem to have a love-hate relationship as they throw banter at one another throughout the entire game.
DEATHLOOP offers players a variety of ways for Colt to kill enemies and the 8 key targets. Players will need to learn from each cycle and try new paths in order to break the loop and escape Blackreef.
Initially, fans who didn’t know about the game were shocked to hear about a Bethesda game being a PlayStation exclusive now that Microsoft owns the company. However, Sony and Bethesda Softworks have announced that DEATHLOOP will remain a PlayStation 5 exclusive until September 14, 2022, at the earliest.
