Arkane Studios’ Deathloop was a title that everyone had high hopes for, and it pretty much delivered just that. The game was, at the time of release, exclusive to the PlayStation 5. However, it was a timed exclusive, and it was only a matter of time before it was released on Xbox as well. Now Deathloop has also been announced for Game Pass.
This is primarily due to the fact that Arkane’s parent company Bethesda Studios is now owned by Microsoft. So technically that makes Deathloop a Microsoft game now. The game was already rumored to be coming to Xbox Game Pass soon. Recently one Reddit user also saw an ad for the game on the Xbox Store dashboard.
Today, finally, exclusivity has come to a standstilland we’ll finally have Deathloop on Xbox Game Pass on September 20th. The game was present on PC before, but now Xbox users will be able to play Arkane’s first-person shooter.
Deathloop launches with an all-new loadout of content – including an expanded final DLC.
Colt, the protagonist of Deathloop, is an assassin tasked with murdering eight visionaries on the island at midnight, because if he leaves just one alive, the time loop will reset and reverse his work. As in Arkane’s other Dishonored and Prey games, the player moves through the game environment using a combination of stealth, parkour, attack skills, weapons, gadgets and abilities.
Each day in Deathloop is divided into four periods: Morning, Noon, Afternoon and Evening. Time moves forward as you traverse the island’s four districts: Updaam, Karl’s Bay, Fristad Rock and The Complex. The time loop in Deathloop is not strictly timed; instead, it’s designed to give players more flexibility and time to take out those eight objectives in a single loop.
The game has generally received good reviews from critics and players worldwide. It had a few bugs and random crashes that were later fixed. Now Xbox players get the chance to dive into the time loop and manage to break free from it. The game will be available on both Xbox Game Pass and PlayStation Plus on September 20, 2022.
