New Deathloop Trailer Is Jam-Packed With Dishonored-Like Action (VIDEO)
Sony’s latest State of Play presentation has come and gone, bringing with it an update on a few indie titles as well as a new extended gameplay trailer for the star of the show, Deathloop. The game itself offers an interesting premise, taking the age-old respawn feature and spinning it into the story in a meaty take on Groundhog’s day. Pairing that with the fact that the title is looking more and more like a Dishonored game thanks to the steady hand of Arkane Studios and you have one of the more highly anticipated current-gen titles. It certainly helps that the soundtrack plays like a more nuanced take on Team Fortress 2 music.
As revealed via narration from the developer, Deathloop tasks players with taking out a set of visionaries, all of whom need to be killed in order to beat the game. Doing so will let our protagonist escape the titular death loop, though coming up short will restart the day, albeit with all the knowledge garnered from previous runs.
As mentioned, Deathloop plays a lot like a Dishonored game. Players have loads of avenues and strategies to use between weapons, abilities, and movement-based skills. As such, this turns the island of Blackreef into a veritable playground, with the only gameplay limits being the player’s own imagination. You can dive straight in through the front door or do a bit more sleuthing to discover alternate ways to approach each visionary. What the player does with that information is up to them; at least they’ve infinite lives with which to put that info to good use.
Deathloop is slated to release on September 14, 2021 for PC and PS5.
