Dishonored developer announces 'Deathloop,' similar to Edge of Tomorrow

What you need to know

  • Deathloop is the next game from Arkane Studios.
  • The team has worked on title like Dishonored and Prey in the past.
  • The game tasks you with escaping a constant cycle of death and rebirth.
  • It's expected to launch on Xbox One probably in 2020.

Today, Bethesda revealed a new game from Arkane Studios called "Deathloop." As the name suggests, you can't die and every time someone kills you, you come back to life and have to relive the event. The title looks quite unique and is described as a first-person adventure where you have to hunt targets on an island.

It seem as though you step into the shoes of an assassin, and have to constantly battle another assassin. In order to break this cycle of constant death, you have to go around murdering even more people. It's unclear how this ties into the plot, but Arkane is known for its intriguing and mystical stories, and we can't wait to learn more.

Deathloop appears to be coming to Xbox One and other platforms, but it might be a next-generation experience. We should know more in the coming months, but given that this was just a cinematic trailer, the wait may be longer than expected.

What do you think of the reveal? Are you intrigued by Deathloop? Let us know. Hopefully Arkane will share more details soon, because it was possibly the biggest announcement from Bethesda's briefing.
