Deathloop, a first-person shooter game, developed by Lyon-based studio, Arkane, has appeared on Xbox store, be it in the form of ads, hinting at its immediate release. The studio is also the developer of the Dishonored series and Redfall.
The game was first released on September 14, 2021, for PC and PS5. PS5 release was console exclusive which meant the game could not be released for any other console for at least a year. Due to that reason Xbox release was delayed for a year.
Deathloop follows the story of an assassin, named Colt, who, as the name of the game suggests, is stuck in a time loop. The player is tasked with killing eight Visionaries, scattered on the island, before midnight. Failing to kill even one of them takes the player to the start of the loop.
The player can use different approaches to complete the game. Like Arkane’s previous releases, the game features parkour, stealth, and different gadgets, aimed at helping the player.
Even though the reviews were mostly positive, the developers received a bit of backlash from the Xbox community. They were furious about the fact they had to wait a year to be able to play the game.
The Xbox release of the game is not expected until the 20th of September. PS5’s timed console exclusivity is set to end on that date.
However, the developers started teasing the game on Xbox 6 days before its rumored release, as the ads for the game were seen on the console’s store.
The game may not be released until the 20th of this month. But the appearance of ads for the game surely took the community by a pleasant surprise as they have been eagerly waiting for its release for almost a year now.
So it’s just a matter of time before they can experience the real thing instead of being teased with ads.
On a side note, Deathloop is also set to be released for PS Plus Extra on 20th September.
