Deathloop is the upcoming first-person action-adventure shooter game by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, which is now owned by Microsoft.
Arkane is the studio behind several well-known titles such as Dishonored, Prey, Dark Messiah, and Arx Fatalis. Though, most of the developers who worked on these titles have left the studio.
In a recent interview with Game Informer, Game Director Dinga Bakaba shared some new information regarding the game. First of all, Deathloop is going to feel similar to Dishonored, but also very different. Some powers will be quite similar, while some other powers will feel completely unique.
Deathloop will feature trinkets, just like the bone charms in Dishonored. These can be equipped on the character or the weapons, which will provide small supernatural benefits, such as the ability to perform a double jump.
The game takes place in Black Reef Island, which is quite small and remote compared to Karnaca from the Dishonored series. Players will be able to freely explore the island at their leisure and find collectibles.
At any point players can restart the time loop by exiting the mission. Also, there is no pacifist way to complete the game. This is first and foremost a murder puzzle.
Lastly, the protagonist of the game had a few drinks before entering the time loop, so he will wake up every day with a horrible hangover. Deathloop will take you approximately 20 hours to complete.
