Deathloop Is The Next Game From the Developers of Dishonored

Arkane Lyon has a new action game on the way.

Arkane Lyon, the developers behind the critically acclaimed Dishonored series, have announced its new game at Bethesda's E3 2019 conference. The cinematic trailer, which gives off a slight grindhouse vibe aesthetically, is called Deathloop. In it, we meet two characters at odds with one another. They're trapped on an island (plus maybe a time loop?), and the only way to break it is if they kill one another.

While after watching the trailer made me wonder if it's a 1v1 action game, instead it sounds more like a single-player action game, with maybe a random element of some sort. On Deathloop's website, it's described as a game that "transports players to the lawless island of Blackreef in an eternal struggle between two extraordinary assassins. Explore stunning environments and meticulously designed levels in an immersive gameplay experience that lets you approach every situation any way you like. Hunt down targets all over the island in an effort to put an end to the cycle once and for all, and remember, if at first you don’t succeed… die, die again."

The trailer shows off magical abilities like teleporting and wallrunning, in addition to lots and lots of guns. While we didn't see any gameplay, Arkane Studios has a high pedigree. Considering the carefully designed level design that's made Dishonored such a hit, we're looking forward to eventually seeing how Deathloop actually plays, and what the island of Blackreef will end up looking like. However, there are no platforms listed on Deathloop's official website, so it could be some time—maybe even the next generation hits—until we hear or see more.
