Deathloop to make console debut on PS5
Upcoming action title will release on the next-gen console first
Deathloop, Arkane Lyon’s new first-person shooter, is now coming to consoles exclusively for PlayStation 5 when it launches this holiday season. It will also be launching on PC at the same time.
Trapped on an island stuck in a timeloop, you will fight, sneak, and sabotage your way past the members of the AEON Program – the island’s trigger-happy revelers who have put you on the top of their hitlist – on your mission to eliminate eight key targets in a single loop and end the “endless” cycle.
Deathloop puts you in the role of Colt, a man with a unique problem. Every morning you wake up on the same beach with the same killer hangover, the subject of the same island-wide manhunt by the same entitled partyers. There’s only one way to free yourself from the loop, the island, and the cycle of slaughter: You’re gonna have to take out the eight people responsible for maintaining the loop.
Deathloop also features a main antagonist that might be another player. You’ll experience Deathloop’s main story as Colt, hunting down targets across the island as you try to break the loop. 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.
Deathloop was first announced last year.
