A next-gen first person shooter, Deathloop puts players in the shoes of the Colt. This assassin finds himself stuck in a time loop on the island of Blackreef, where he must take out eight different targets before the aforementioned time loop undoes his work. Much like Arkane’s previous title Dishonored, players can utilize a blend of stealth, parkour, and attack skills to take down their targets. A multiplayer component will also be included.
The game will come out for the PlayStation 5 and PC via Steam.
