“If at first you don’t succeed, die, die again.”




Deathloop was originally announced by Bethesda studio Arkane Lyon in 2019, but duringSony’s Future of Gaming event, we got to see actual gameplay. Based on the trailer, the timeloop-based game looks stylish as hell.
“You’re gonna have to take out the eight people responsible for maintaining the loop,” a post on the PlayStation blog reads. Here, Arkane affords the player with a ton of freedom, as you’ll be able to take on levels in any order you choose, at whatever pace you choose, selecting targets as you please. The idea is to learn more as you go, so you can eventually solve the puzzle of how to stop the time loop.
You can tell the game is manned by Arkane, too. Many of the protagonists’ powers are similar to what you’ll find in Dishonored, such as the teleporting Blink. There seem to be some good sneaky options for combat as well. The game appears to be focused on supernatural abilities and spooky environments. Many of the characters highlighted during the trailer have a cult-like vibe, with folks often wearing a fox mask to hide their faces — or other types of coverings.
While the game’s premise was not fully explained, the player-character will also have a rival assassin who will come after them (and possibly their prey?). This rival can be played by an actual person if you opt into the multiplayer,Sony says:
Meanwhile, another player might temporarily enter your story in the role of Julianna, a rival assassin with her own singular goal: Protect the loop by eliminating Colt. Of course, if you’re feeling particularly villainous, you can slip into the shoes of Julianna yourself, jumping into someone else’s Blackreef for a tense game of cat-and-mouse.
For a brief moment during the gameplay reveal, the UI also displayed some information that makes it seem like the game is built with speedrunning in mind.
Deathloop will be a timed exclusive on the PS5.

Arkane is one of the best studios working today. Loved Dishonored and just bought Prey on GOG after playing some on PS4 and not liking the controls + load times.

This seems like more of Dishonored in a different settings / weapons.

Dishonored 2, along with MGSV, has some of the finest stealth-action gameplay to date. Looking forward to seeing how the time loop mechanic works. Regardless, it's a day 1 buy for me.

I loved both the Dishonoured games especially the first one. This looks more action oriented than a stealth game to me. Although it does look great but tbh i would have preferred a proper Dishonoured sequel.

But most of all, I would be ecstatic if they someday announce a sequel to the fantastic Prey. I love that game.

Arkhane is one of my favorite developers so I'm intrigued by this.

But most of all, I would be ecstatic if they someday announce a sequel to the fantastic Prey. I love that game.
Totally agreed. As an immersive sim, Prey is the true spiritual successor to System Shock. I hope we see a sequel in the future.

For some reason, this game looked generic AF and not interesting at all to me. It was like they bastardized Dishonored and I would much rather like a Dishonored sequel than this. But, the devs can turn this into something good and I hope it turns out well.

For the Arkane Studio fans,

If you're familiar with Ultima Underworld series, you should definitely check out the very first game that Arkane worked on in that space:

Arx Fatalis

The replay value and depth offered is still unmatched by most games in that genre being released today.

    Because permanence costs more than Sony is willing to spend 🤷‍♂️
