A brand new trailer for Deathloop dropped today that shows a few quick snippets of the game before offering up the info everyone’s been waiting for… the official release date. 

Deathloop Release Date Announced

The official release date for Deathloop is May 21, 2021. Even though it sounds close given we’re very close to ending the terrible year that is 2020 and entering the (hopefully) better year of 2021, the May release date will have gamers waiting six months to get their hands on Deathloop. 

When the game is released, it’ll be available on PS5 and PC. If you haven’t done so already and you want to, you can pre-order the game right now with the Standard Edition priced at $59.99 (USD) and the Deluxe Edition priced at $79.99 (USD). 

Deathloop is being developed by Arkane Studios and will be published by Bethesda Softworks. In the announcement post regarding the release date for Deathloop, the game is described as follows: 

“Welcome to Blackreef, where the party never stops and neither does the killing. This is DEATHLOOP, a next-gen first-person shooter from Arkane Lyon, the team behind Dishonored. Our hero Colt is trapped on Blackreef, stuck in a timeloop and forced to relive the same deadly day over and over. Armed with extraordinary abilities and devastating weapons, Colt is going to have to use every tool at his disposal to put an end to the cycle and find his way off the island.

To do so, he’ll have to take out eight key targets that are scattered across the island before the day ends and the loop resets. And he’ll have to do all this while avoiding his rival Julianna, whose sole goal is to keep the loop going by any means necessary. If you’re feeling villainous, you can even choose to play as Julianna and invade another player’s campaign. Learn from each cycle; try new paths, gather intel and find new weapons and abilities. Do whatever it takes to break the loop.”

Overall, Deathloop sounds like it’ll be an interesting game and we’re genuinely looking forward to playing it once it’s released on May 21, 2021
