Time-Bending Shooter Deathloop Gets a Release Date With New Trailer

The much anticipated time-bending shooter from Bethesda Softworks and Arkane Studios has finally been granted a release date via a new trailer. Deathloop is set to launch on May 21, 2021 on PlayStation 5 and PC.

Deathloop stars Colt, an assassin stuck in a never-ending day with the only way to break the cycle being the death of his eight assigned targets.

Shaking up the formula, Deathloop includes a multiplayer mode which allows players to take on the role of Julianna and invade another player’s campaign.

Originally slated to release within the launch window for the PlayStation 5, Deathloop was delayed back in August to Q2 2021.

Bethesda has released more details on Deathloop’s website.

Welcome to Blackreef, where the party never stops and neither does the killing. This is DEATHLOOP, a next-gen first-person shooter from Arkane Lyon, the team behind Dishonored. Our hero Colt is trapped on Blackreef, stuck in a timeloop and forced to relive the same deadly day over and over.

Armed with extraordinary abilities and devastating weapons, Colt is going to have to use every tool at his disposal to put an end to the cycle and find his way off the island.

To do so, he’ll have to take out eight key targets that are scattered across the island before the day ends and the loop resets. And he’ll have to do all this will avoiding his rival Julianna, whose sole goal is to keep the loop going by any means necessary.

If you’re feeling villainous, you can even choose to play as Julianna and invade another player’s campaign. Learn from each cycle; try new paths, gather intel and find new weapons and abilities. Do whatever it takes to break the loop.

Pre-orders have opened up today according to the official website. The game will launch with a standard and deluxe edition. Further details were provided by Bethesda.
