Groundhog Day. Live Die Repeat. Deathloop. Arkane Studios, the developer behind Dishonored and Prey, have a new game on the way, and it takes after the try-try-again ideas behind movies like Live Die Repeat. In Deathloop, you play as an assassin trying to break out of an endless timeloop. Bethesda is calling it a first-person action game, so we can only guess right now about the particulars. Is it a roguelike FPS like Arkane’s Prey Mooncrash? Is it multiplayer? We don’t know just yet.
Here’s Bethesda’s line on the Deathloop:
DEATHLOOP transports players to the lawless island of Blackreef in an eternal struggle between two extraordinary assassins. Explore stunning environments and meticulously designed levels in an immersive gameplay experience that lets you approach every situation any way you like. Hunt down targets all over the island in an effort to put an end to the cycle once and for all, and remember, if at first you don’t succeed… die, die again.
Deathloop was just announced tonight, so Bethesda isn’t talking about release dates or platforms, so keep an eye out for new info to come.
