Bethesda Softworks have released a new gameplay trailer for Arkane Studios’ Deathloop during the PlayStation State of Play presentation.
As previously reported, the game takes place on the island of Blackreef, an island full of debauchery and chaos. An assassin known as Colt however, is stuck in a timeloop with everyone trying to kill him.
Colt is still trying to reach his target; Aleksis Doresy, the “Alpha Wolf.” Along with Aleksis, Colt must kill eight “Visionaries” in one night, before the loop resets or rival assassin Julianna Blake kills him.
The new gameplay trailer focuses on one of the Visionaries. “Ramblin'” Frank Spicer acts as the island’s DJ, and has more than a few plans to put Colt in a spin, no matter how many times they go around and around. The trailer also features an original song inspired by the game by Sencit, featuring FJØRA, with clear James Bond inspirations.
You can find the Deja Vu trailer below.
You can find the full rundown (via PlayStation) 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.
If At First You Don’t Succeed… Die, Die Again
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.
SINGLE PLAYER GAMEPLAY INJECTED WITH DEADLY MULTIPLAYER
Are you the hero or the villain? 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.
The island Of Blackreef – Paradise Or Prison
Arkane is renowned for magnificently artistic worlds with multiple pathways and emergent gameplay. DEATHLOOP will present a stunning, retro-future, 60s-inspired environment, that feels like a character within itself. While Blackreef may be a stylish wonderland, for Colt it is his prison, a world ruled by decadence where death has no meaning, and delinquents party forever while keeping him captive.
Deathloop launches May 21st, 2021 for Windows PC (via Steam), and PlayStation 5.
