Arkane Lyon’s Deathloop was announced during Bethesda 2019 E3 showcase overnight. The Dishonored and Prey developers unveiled a very James Bond-esque ultra-stylised first-person action game that promises to feature Arkane’s “meticulously designed levels and immersive gameplay” that the studio has become famed for.
Set on the lawless island of Blackreef, two assassins (The Captain and Jules) are locked in and endless struggle for dominance. Players must hunt down targets all over the island in an effort to close the loop and end the cycle once and for all. Each of them looks to be equipped with a range of inventive powers, Dishonored-style.
Groundhog Day-style time loops are really in vogue these days, aren’t they? Still, it’s Arkane, and we’re always keen to see what they’re cooking up after their truly excellent track record.
As with GhostWire: Tokyo, there’s no release or platforms yet announced for Deathloop.
