Arkane Studios has announced the release ofgame update 3 from Deathloop which, among other features, adds the photo mode on PC and PS5. It also introduces accessibility options and gives away PS5 avatars.
In addition, some levels have been improved, the story has been updated to support photo mode, and support for AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) 2.0 has been added to the PC version. Let’s read other details on photo mode and accessibility options, but not before seeing the trailer for the premiere:
Express yourself with a wide variety of filters, stickers, poses and other customization options in DEATHLOOP’s all-new Photo mode. Available in single player mode only, Photo mode is accessible via the pause menu in any map or by activating the shortcut (“P” key on PC by default). To enable Quick Link on PlayStation 5:
Options> Commands> “Controller” tab> Photo mode quick access> Yes
Once in game, double press the “Create” button (the button to the left of the touch pad button) on your DualSense to open Photo mode.
“This Photo mode is a great way to allow our players to be creative by taking advantage of DEATHLOOP’s unique graphics and levels,” says producer Jérémy Leuliet. “The only creative limits are defined by the imagination of the players. We are all curious to see how deeply players will explore the different options and what they will come up with.”
In addition to being able to select filters and shots as a professional photographer, you can swap Colt and Julianna, change outfits and weapons (including skin and specific weapon variant) and try your hand at over a dozen poses worth sharing.
“One of the biggest challenges was adapting Photo mode to a first person shooter where the character is not shown, weapons and hands aside,” explains Leuliet. “We wanted to offer the best possible experience for this mode, and we took the time to test it thoroughly and even ask gamers experienced in using various Photo modes in games for information. We had so much fun testing Photo mode that we have added many relevant options in order to make it even more pleasant to use. “
“Whenever we release a game, Photo mode is one of the most requested features by players,” adds studio director Dinga Bakaba. “Seeing how virtual photographers can take incredible shots in our worlds without a dedicated mode, we can’t be more excited to offer these tools to the entire community.”
“We are really grateful to the players and the community who gave us so much feedback when DEATHLOOP was released,” says Yoann Bazoge, chief interface designer. “We took our time to read all the accessibility opinions and watch videos of players explaining why they couldn’t play DEATHLOOP. We then worked on a document that listed all the feedback and established a roadmap for which would be the additions for update 3 of the game. “
Game Update 3 introduces over 30 changes and accessibility options, from improvements to menu navigation and interface options to a host of new gameplay options. The update also adds a dedicated Accessibility category, which can be found in the options menu. This new menu packs your existing options and many of the new options available with this update, including:
New game settings that allow players to further customize combat in Single Player mode (most are not available for Online or Friends modes). For example, increase or decrease the combat difficulty, change the number of shots and slow down the game speed.
New interface and subtitle options, such as customizing the size, opacity and color of various text and graphic elements.
Easier menu navigation, which allows you to use the directional keys on the controller to scroll up and down in lists. Pointer speed can now be adjusted in settings to make it easier to navigate settings with a controller.
“One of the things we didn’t expect when we started using the accessibility features was how some of these options could be useful and fun for everyone,” says Bakaba. “My favorites are slow motion, which allows you to create combos that are otherwise nearly impossible, and the shot count, which allows you to experiment without consequences with the infinite setting. Or, you can make the game more challenging by completely zeroing the shots.”
“Accessibility in games is a complex topic,” says Bazoge. “We estimate that over 400 million players need additional assistance while they play. There are a lot of people who can therefore feel left out without some of these options. When we started discussing it with our teams, they were all very motivated to develop them. . “
