For those who followed the State of Play of February 25, you could see a new gameplay for the French game Deathloop which will be released for PlayStation 5 on May 21. Many had already noticed that the gameplay was very reminiscent of the Dishonored franchise, and that’s to be expected since it’s the same studio behind these two games. The Lyon studio Arkane Studios has also published an explanatory video, for all those who have not fully understood the principle of the game. This is an opportunity to take notes before the game is released!

To sum up the story, in Deathloop you play as Colt who wakes up on Blackreef Island every morning. You are stuck in a time loop and the only way out is to kill eight targets, who call themselves the Visionaries. These eight targets are scattered across the island and you must kill them all before midnight in order to break free from the time loop. The problem is that Julianna Blake will be there to put obstacles in your way since she does not want the time loop to disappear under any circumstances.

In the video, it is explained that repetitive temporality is a state of play that must be taken as an asset rather than an obstacle. Obviously, you will not be able to defeat the Eight Visionaries on day one, and by accepting this fact, you will be able to take advantage of what the Time Loop has to offer. The more you learn about targets, the more important information you can learn from them that will change the way you organize yourself. Plus, with each loop you keep your weapons and skills you learned in the previous loop, giving you an edge over time. So, as the video indicates, in the game, “ time is always on your side “.
