Can you break the DEATHLOOP on Xbox Series X|S?

When you’ve got Dishonored in your back catalogue, you probably know how to make a game. That’s the case for Arkane Lyon as they finally get the chance to break out from PlayStation exclusivity to release the looping madness of DEATHLOOP onto Xbox. 

Playable on Xbox Series X|S – please don’t expect any Xbox One love with this one – DEATHLOOP should be seen as the next-gen first person shooter that YOU should be playing. 

It’s priced at £59.99 for the Standard Edition – a version that is also available to download and play through Game Pass – or at £79.99 for the Deluxe Edition. It’s that one that is super tempting as not only does it give access to the base game, but you’ll get a ton of unique weaponry, skins and trinkets thrown in for good measure. Neatly, you can grab that extra gear via the Deluxe Pack add-on if you so decide. 

However you play, you should be in for something a bit special with DEATHLOOP. It throws you into the life and times of Colt, an assassin who is found trying to escape the never-ending cycle of objectiveness. See, you’ve been tasked with taking down eight key targets – but you need to do so before time resets. Fail and you’ll be left to run the loop again, working your way through different paths, tactics and weaponry. 

How you go about tackling DEATHLOOP is up to you, but you can be sure that this is a game which will give you all the tools you need in order to do so. You’ll just need to try and work out which are best suited to providing the success you hunt. 

With a 1960s inspired world pushing you along, one that has been expertly created by the Arkane team, everything in DEATHLOOP will look brilliant too, helping with the immersion even more. 

The key features include:

  • IF AT FIRST YOU DON’T SUCCEED… DIE, DIE AGAIN – Every new loop is an opportunity to change things up. Use the knowledge you gain from each attempt to change up your playstyle, stealthily sneaking through levels or barreling into the fight, guns-blazing. In each loop you’ll discover new secrets, gather intel on your targets as well as the island of Blackreef, and expand your arsenal. Armed with a host of otherworldly abilities and savage weaponry, you’ll utilize every tool at your command to execute takedowns that are as striking as they are devastating. Customize your loadout 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’ll experience DEATHLOOP’s main story as Colt, hunting down targets across the island of Blackreef to break the loop and earn your freedom. All the while, you’ll be hunted by your rival Julianna, who can be controlled by another player. So if you’re feeling devious, you, too, can step into Julianna’s stylish sneakers and invade 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.
  • THE ISLAND OF BLACKREEF – PARADISE OR PRISON – Arkane is renowned for magnificently artistic worlds with multiple pathways and emergent gameplay. DEATHLOOP will present a stunning, retro-future, 60s-inspired environment, that feels like a character within itself. While Blackreef may be a stylish wonderland, for Colt it is his prison, a world ruled by decadence where death has no meaning, and delinquents party forever while keeping him captive.

Having once been restricted to the world of PlayStation, it’s time for Xbox Series X|S players to get immersed in the madness of the time loop, as DEATHLOOP blasts onto Xbox. Make sure you go and grab a copy from the Xbox Store right now, whether you pay cash or make the most of Xbox Game Pass. Oh, it runs with Xbox Play Anywhere support too – enabling you to play across Xbox and PC.

And if you need a review? We’ll be there with ours very soon.
