Deathloop has gone gold ahead of its September release
Arkane Lyon’s PS5 and PC game has been delayed on two occasions
Deathloop has gone gold, meaning it is feature complete and ready for physical production.
“Get ready to break the timeloop on September 14,” Arkane tweeted on Thursday.
Announced at E3 2019, the first-person shooter was originally due to launch during the 2020 holiday season for PC and PS5 as a timed console exclusive.
It was then delayed to May 2021, and later pushed to this September.
Deathloop takes place on a lawless island called Blackreef. Its central mechanic is the ability to replay sequences in order to approach situations in different ways.
Players take on the role of assassin Colt, who’s stuck in a time loop which sees him wake up on the same beach each day to find he’s the subject of an island-wide manhunt.
In order to break the loop he must use weapons and supernatural abilities to take out eight targets before the clock strikes midnight.
However, there’s also a rival assassin locked in the time loop called Juliana. Her job is to protect the loop by eliminating Colt.
An optional multiplayer element will enable you to step into Juliana’s shoes and invade other players’ games.
A message at the end of a Deathloop gameplay walkthrough released last month confirmed the title will not be available on other consoles until at least September 14, 2022, when it can be expected to be released for Xbox platforms including Game Pass.
