Another day, another postponement for a big game of 2021. This time, the victim is Deathloop from Bethesda and Arkane Studios, who is moving from the original May release date to September. This is actually the second major delay that Deathloop has suffered as the game was originally due to launch the 2020 holiday.
– DEATHLOOP (@deathloop) April 8, 2021
We have made the decision to delay the launch of Deathloop until September 14, 2021. We are committed to quality and maintaining our team’s ambitions for Deathloop, while ensuring the health and safety of everyone at Arkane. We will use this extra time to achieve our goal of creating a fun, stylish and mind-blowing player experience.
We apologize for the long wait and thank you all for your passion and excitement. It’s the fuel that fuels our creativity and hard work. We can’t wait to show you more Deathloop soon!
Didn’t you keep up with Deathloop? The game challenges players to perfect their methods and beat eight goals within a single looping day, or jump into another player’s game and try to end their mission prematurely. Here is the official description of the game …
In Deathloop, two rival assassins are trapped in a mysterious timeloop on Blackreef Island, doomed to repeat the same day forever. As Colt, the only chance to escape is ending the cycle by killing eight key targets before the day resets. Learn from each cycle – try new paths, gather information and find new weapons and skills. Do whatever it takes to break the loop.
- If you don’t succeed at first … die, die again – Every new loop is an opportunity to change things. Use the knowledge you gain to change your play style, sneak stealthily through levels, or run into battle with firearms. In each loop you will discover new secrets, collect information about your goals and the island of Blackreef and expand your arsenal. Armed with a myriad of alien abilities and ferocious weapons, use every tool at your disposal to perform takedowns that are as striking as they are devastating. Customize your equipment wisely to survive this deadly game of hunter vs hunted.
- Single-player gameplay injected with deadly multiplayer – Are you the hero or the villain? You experience the main story of DEATHLOOP as Colt, who chases targets across the island of Blackreef to break the cycle and earn your freedom. Meanwhile, you are being chased by your rival Julianna, who can be controlled by another player. So if you’re feeling cunning, you too can step into Julianna’s stylish sneakers and raid another player’s campaign to kill Colt. The multiplayer experience is completely optional and players can choose to have Julianna controlled by AI within their campaign.
Deathloop is targeting PC and PS5 on September 15th.
