Deathloop Reportedly Coming To Xbox Game Pass On September 20
Arkane Studios’ Deathloop may be headed to Xbox Game Pass on September 20, 2022, based on the latest rumor.
During the latest episode of The Xbox Two, titled “PlayStation Cries Over Call of Duty”, Rand and Jez Corden confidently stated that Deathloop will arrive soon on Xbox Game Pass, and Rand believes it will happen as soon as September 20, 2022.
According to Rand, there’s a possibility that Microsoft will make an announcement on September 15, 2022 regarding Deathloop coming to Xbox Game Pass as early as the next week on September 20, 2022. Jez stated that he’d “bet money” on this possibility becoming a reality.
Rand mentioned that the game is set to appear on PS Plus Extra on September 20, and, as such, based on his prediction, Microsoft will also be looking to bring it to its subscription service i.e. Xbox Game Pass, on the same day.
The protagonist of Deathloop, Colt, is an assassin trapped in a time loop who has been ordered to kill eight Visionaries across the island before midnight because if he leaves even one alive, the time loop will reset and undo his work. The player uses a combination of stealth, parkour, attack skills, weapons, gadgets, and powers as in Arkane’s previous Dishonored and Prey games to move about the game world. In addition, should Colt pass away before eliminating the eight targets, he will wake up at the start of the loop. They must take out or disable guards, learn Colt’s targets’ habits, and determine the best sequence for taking out those targets with weapons, melee combat, or other natural means.
In Deathloop, each day is divided into four periods (Morning, Noon, Afternoon, and Evening), and moving between the island’s four districts (Updaam, Karl’s Bay, Fristad Rock, and The Complex) causes time to advance. Deathloop’s time loop is not strictly timed and is intended to give players more time and freedom to eliminate these eight targets in one loop. Depending on what time of day the player enters a particular district, the people there have different routines, and what the player does in one district can change the routines in the others.
