Deathloop just immediately shot up my most anticipated game list

Typically, I’ve never been able to get into FPS, but Deathloop might make an exception and that’s in no small part to the main characters.

Yes, it actually looks like a video game is going to feature two black characters. I complain too often about a lack of real diversity in video games so I’m not about to pass up on a chance to support a game that puts some different faces in key roles beyond supporting status.


Announced at the 2019 Bethesda Showcase, watch the announcement teaser for “DEATHLOOP,” a first-person action game from Arkane Lyon. “DEATHLOOP” 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.

This game looks amazing and while I typically have zero interest in FPS, Deathloop has a very cool style.

I also like the film’s Edge of Tomorrow vibe. I loved that movie and playing a video game version of that kind of premise where it’s not just a matter of an extra life sounds very promising.

What do you think of the trailer?
