DEATHLOOP is basically Groundhog Day or Edge of Tomorrow… But in a video game. In DEATHLOOP you are an assassin trapped in a time loop. In the below video, Game Director Dinga Bakaba of Arkane Lyon (Dishonored, Prey – 2017) tells us more about the incoming game.
DEATHLOOP’s gameplay sees you hunting down 8 targets known as the visionaries. Each time you restart the loop you need to remember what happened in the previous to help you progress each day. Actually reminds me a bit of the movie “Boss Level”.
The game is a console exclusive to PS5 but is also coming to PC. The gameplay itself looks absolutely insane, a fast-paced shooter with puzzles all whilst met with top-level next-gen graphics.
