Deathloop was originally announced during the PS5 July showcase event. The game which is published by Bethesda is a PS5 timed-exclusive. However, it was recently delayed. Thanks to a new PlayStation Store listing, the game finally has a release date. Keep in mind that this is not confirmed yet so it may change. Players can look forward to jumping into the game on 21 May 2021.
Deathloop is a fast-paced first-person shooter from Arkane Lyon. It pits two assassins against each other in a mysterious time loop on an island called Blackreef. We are not sure why these two people are stuck repeating the same day over and over again but the only way to escape the island is to assassinate eight key targets before the day resets. Players will take on each day differently as they learn from their mistakes and triumphs from the previous day.
As they play through each day in Deathloop, players can make use of new skills and try different approaches to each assassination. The game’s emphasis on discovery makes it important for players to gather intel and find new weapons and ways to take down their opponent. Arkane describes the game as;
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#7EFF33″ class=”” size=”21″]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.[/perfectpullquote]
Deathloop is both a single-player and multiplayer game.

You’ll experience DEATHLOOP’s main story as Colt, hunting down targets across the island of Blackreef to break the loop and earn your freedom. All the while, you’ll be hunted by your rival Julianna, who can be controlled by another player. So if you’re feeling devious, you, too, can step into Julianna’s stylish sneakers and invade another player’s campaign to kill Colt. The multiplayer experience is completely optional, and players can choose to have Julianna controlled by AI within their campaign.[/perfectpullquote]
