During today's PS5 Showcase, Bethesda Softworks surprised us with a new flashy trailer explaining the plot to Deathloop. This brand new trailer basically gives us a lot more insight into the game and drops a bit of hot lore for people to get into. In the video, which you can check out below, we see the protagonist Colt as he seeks out two of the eight key assassination targets. They're keeping him imprisoned on the time-locked island of Blackreef, from which he can't escape as every day starts out the same. Since you learn from every single day, you are presented with several different ways to quickly and efficiently eliminate targets so you can get through the day faster and making it easier to kill your targets. However, you're also being hunted down everywhere you turn. Enjoy the trailer below as you trying to break the cycle sometime this holiday season.
Deathloop is an innovative first person shooter launching for PlayStation 5 and PC from Arkane Lyon, the award-winning studio behind the critically acclaimed Dishonored franchise. The studio's new IP will continue Arkane's signature gameplay design, challenging gamers to play their own way. As Colt, players are trapped in a time loop on the enigmatic island of Blackreef, doomed to repeat the same day for eternity. The only chance for escape is to break the loop by unearthing information and assassinating eight key targets before the day resets. However, lurking in the shadows is rival assassin Julianna, equipped with her own equally powerful abilities and weapons, on a mission to protect the loop by assassinating Colt, and restarting the cycle. Players can also choose to take control of Julianna, turning Deathloop into a deadly game of hunter-vs-hunted.
