To the surprise of almost no one, Microsoft announced during a live stream at the Tokyo Game Show that “Deathloop” will also be coming to Xbox Series X. A corresponding pre-order notice had previously been spotted on the Xbox dashboard.
So, now to the hard facts: “Deathloop” will also be available for Xbox Series X on September 20th, next Tuesday. That’s just days after Sony’s one-year exclusivity period ends. “Deathloop” was released on September 14, 2021 for PS5 and PC.
Deathloop is an innovative next-gen FPS from Arkane Lyon, the award-winning creators of Dishonored. In “Deathloop” two rival assassins on the island of Blackreef find themselves trapped in a time loop, doomed to relive the same day over and over again into eternity. You slip into the role of Colt. Your goal: to break the loop. To do this, you must eliminate eight targets before the clock resets. Learn from each circuit – try new paths, gather information, and acquire new weapons and abilities.
Each loop presents a new opportunity: use the knowledge gained from previous loops to customize your approach – whether you rely on stealth and sneak through a level or charge into battle, guns drawn and unleash pure chaos. You have an arsenal of supernatural powers and deadly weapons at your disposal to remove your opponents from the equation in style. Use this arsenal as cleverly as possible to avoid becoming the hunted from the hunter.
Do you prefer to be the protagonist or the antagonist? You experience the campaign as Colt, who must eliminate eight targets on Blackreef in order to break the loop and gain his freedom. However, in the meantime Julianna is breathing down your neck. Other players have the opportunity to take on the role of this adversary to invade your game and stop you from getting closer to your goal. This multiplayer experience is of course completely optional. In single player, Julianna can be controlled by the AI as usual without any problems.
paradise or prison? Arkane has made a name for itself with its immersive, breathtakingly artistic worlds and the ability to solve problems in different ways. Deathloop’s stunning 1960s-inspired retro-future world bursts with life and character. But as much as Blackreef is a paradise for the eyes – for Colt this island is still like a prison. In this world where decadence reigns supreme and death is irrelevant, Colt is on the hit list of a perpetually reveling, morally reprehensible mob who won’t let their party spoil at all costs.
