What is Deathloop?
Deathloop is a first-person shooter from Arkane Lyon, the developer behind the Dishonored series. It’s about a pair of rival assassins who are stuck in a Groundhog Day-type loop where they keep living through the same day over and over again. You play as Colt, and your goal is to break the time loop by taking down eight targets in a single day. To do so, you can take advantage of a wide array of weaponry, as well as supernatural powers.
As you go about your business, you’re being hunted by Julianna Blake, another assassin. Julianna is controlled by the game’s AI, but if you want to, you can enable multiplayer to let Julianna be controlled by another player. Or you can invade another player’s game by taking control of Julianna and hunting down Colt.
Despite Microsoft now owning Bethesda, the parent company of Arkane Lyon, Deathloop remains a PS5 console exclusive. As such, it takes full advantage of the DualSense controller, offering haptic feedback and using the adaptive triggers.
