Found yourself a little bit confused by DEATHLOOP’s time loop murder-puzzle gameplay? Yeah, me too, but fortunately Game Director Dinga Bakaba stars in a new video that details how the game works. Check it out down below:
DEATHLOOP is a next-gen first person shooter from Arkane Lyon, the award-winning studio behind Dishonored. In DEATHLOOP, two rival assassins are trapped in a mysterious timeloop on the island of Blackreef, doomed to repeat the same day for eternity. As Colt, the only chance for escape is to end the cycle by assassinating eight key targets before the day resets. Learn from each cycle – try new paths, gather intel, and find new weapons and abilities. Do whatever it takes to break the loop.
Every new loop is an opportunity to change things up. Use the knowledge you gain from each attempt to change up your playstyle, stealthily sneaking through levels or barreling into the fight, guns-blazing. In each loop you’ll discover new secrets, gather intel on your targets as well as the island of Blackreef, and expand your arsenal. Armed with a host of otherworldly abilities and savage weaponry, you’ll utilize every tool at your command to execute takedowns that are as striking as they are devastating. Customize your loadout wisely to survive this deadly game of hunter vs hunted.
It seems that there are still plenty of secrets to discover about DEATHLOOP’s world, but it’s nice to understand how the game works with a bit more clarity. It still sounds and looks super sick to me…. I can’t wait to play it, especially given Arkane’s track record with their previous releases.
DEATHLOOP is coming to the PlayStation 5 and PC on May 21st 2021. Find out more on the official website through this link.
