What is Deathloop?

Take part in the eternal struggle between two extraordinary assassins.

Take on the role of Colt as you search for a way to put an end to a timeloop trapping Blackreef while being hunted by the island’s inhabitants.

Use powerful weapons and abilities to take out eight key targets across the stunning and chaotic island before the day resets.

Lurking in the shadows is rival assassin Julianna whose sole mission is to take Colt out and keep the loop going. Learn from each cycle, try new paths and approaches to break the loop once and for all.

Why you should play DEATHLOOP

"DEATHLOOP takes the ‘immersive sim’ formula that developer Arkane Studios so successfully honed with Dishonoured and Prey, and spices it up via the addition of a daring timeloop structure and tense ‘invasion’ mechanic. 

Hip, sophisticated and hugely replayable – this is a unique shooter that sucks you in, spins you round and keeps you coming back for more."

- PlayStation.com Editorial Team

DEATHLOOP key features

Signature Arkane gameplay

Fight to survive a deadly game of hunter vs hunted as you immerse yourself in first-person action armed with a powerful roster of otherworldly powers and savage weaponry. Choose your preferred playstyle, from sneaking your way through each level to barrelling gun-first into the fight.

Blend single-player and multiplayer gameplay

Experience the main story as Colt as attempts to break the loop and earn his freedom. You can also take control of rival assassin Julianna, sneaking into another player’s campaign and keeping him imprisoned in the loop by killing him. The multiplayer experience is optional, and players can choose to have Julianna controlled by AI within their campaign.

Knowledge is power

Each new loop in is an opportunity to learn from the past and adapt. Finding clues and uncovering hints is key to taking out targets before the day resets. Discover relationships, learn schedules and do whatever it takes to gain the necessary knowledge. Apply what you’ve learned in previous loops to devise other new strategies and eventually reach your targets. 

The island of Blackreef

Explore Arkane’s artful world of multiple pathways and emergent gameplay as you immerse yourself in DEATHLOOP’s stunning, retro-future, ‘60s-inspired environment. Blackreef is a stylish wonderland imprisoning Colt, a world ruled by decadence where death has no meaning, and delinquents party forever while keeping him captive.

DEATHLOOP PS5 features

Haptic feedback

Haptic Feedback allows players to feel their experience like never before in an FPS. Each ability and weapon in your arsenal gives unique feedback. Each movement type (running, climbing, sneaking) provides a different sensation. Players will feel the stark contrast of surfaces as they battle through stunning environments.

Adaptive triggers

Adaptive triggers bring new levels of immersion. Each weapon in the arsenal has a distinctive trigger pull. Blocked triggers alert players to jammed guns. Hitting or missing with a machete attack has a different sensation. With adaptive triggers, each encounter feels unique in the player’s hands.

Fast loading

Thanks to the power of the PS5 console's ultra-high speed SSD, your next loop is just a handful of seconds away. If at first you don’t succeed… die, die again; and don’t worry about loading times.

Stunning visuals 

The PS5 console brings Arkane's unique artistic vision to life like never before, allowing players to explore the visually stunning 1960s-inspired world of DEATHLOOP in beautiful 4K at 60FPS with HDR, or through a specific mode with Ray-traced sunlight shadows and ambient occlusion.*1

*1Dynamic 4K and HDR require a compatible 4K & HDR compatible TV or display.

Deathloop FAQ

Deathloop is a story-driven, first-person action shooter set in a time loop. Choose your preferred playstyle - whether that’s strategic stealth or explosive action - and learn from each cycle. 

Every loop is an opportunity to try new paths, gather intel, and find new weapons and abilities. Piece together the mysteries of the island as the hero Colt, or play as the villain Julianna and hunt Colt down in Deathloop’s PvP.

Deathloop is not a roguelike. Between missions you’ll have the option to spend Residuum - a resource earned by exploring and taking out targets - to permanently unlock weapons, abilities and upgrades across loops, meaning you won’t have to start from the very beginning every time you die or the day restarts. 

Deathloop was created by Arkane Lyon, the award-winning studio behind the Dishonored franchise and Edge Magazine’s 2021 “Studio of the Year.”

Understanding how the island of Blackreef works makes it easier to move around and take down targets. The tutorial at the beginning of the game takes you through all the basic game mechanics. 

Every time you 'loop', you'll have had the opportunity to learn something new about the island. This could include discovering a target's schedule, new weapons, shortcuts or abilities. When you ‘loop’, you won’t have to start from scratch, either. Even if your day is cut short by an enemy, you still retain your knowledge and anything you unlocked with Residuum, allowing you to make progress every loop.

If you're finding things difficult, change up your loadout to play to your strengths, whether that's going in all guns blazing or taking a more stealthy approach. There's no one way to play Deathloop!

Yes. If you want to try your hand at playing the antagonist, you can invade another player's campaign as Colt’s rival, Julianna, whose sole purpose is to stop Colt from ending the time loop. 

Julianna has her own suite of weapons and abilities that she unlocks through play. Deathloop's PvP is entirely optional. For those that prefer a single-player experience, Julianna can be controlled by AI instead.

Deathloop is unsuitable for children due to mature themes including blood and gore, violence, sexual themes and strong language.

No, Deathloop is only available for PS5 and PC.
