Today, Arkane showed off some brand new footage for their upcoming game, Deathloop during Sony’s State of Play event. The trailer below shows plenty of interesting new mechanics the game has to offer, including how important the information, weapons, and abilities you get each loop will be to Cole’s overall success.
The trailer above also shows off the interesting dynamic between Cole and antagonists Julianna, who banter over the radio for the majority of the trailer. Their relationship is interesting, coming off as far more friendly than previous videos we’ve seen for Deathloop.
We also see the many different routes that Cole can take on his journey to assassinate his enemies, including being able to put one of them through a meat grinder with the push of a button. Unfortunately for him, the oop once again ends when he is shot by Julianna, but not before she hints that the two have a significant past with one another.
If all of that wasn’t enough info on the game for you, Bethesda and Arkane offered the following description for Deathloop:
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.
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.
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.
