The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
The problem is when we’re on autopilot for so long that we forget were on autopilot. Because when we’re not even aware of our own habits, routines, impulses, and reactions, then we no longer control them they control us.
As it turns out, Colt Vahn is an amnesiac who seems to have woken up on a beach with no memory of why he’s on Deathloop’s party island, Blackreef. That’s ok though because someone has left him vague messages in the sky about what to do. Our goal in Deathloop is to take out eight Visionaries, intelligent party-lovers who’ve locked an island into one repeating day so they can piss about for eternity.

One of the things that makes me love the new Deathloop so much is the way it takes the game into new territory. On the surface, it’s just you and your friends, with a few bullets and a high-powered laser sword. But underneath every single bullet is a whole other story about a bunch of people who’ve been forced to hide, even from themselves. There’s this little island that’s been under siege for hundreds of years.
We don’t know the story of Deathloop yet. The developers of Arkane have said that there will be more information in the coming months, but the only way to get a complete idea of the game is to play it for yourself. So this is one of those games that will be out soon, and we can’t wait to explore it further.
Deathloop, in addition to being a time-looping stealth game, is an ARPG. Arkane’s own website gives us a link to their ARPG page. So if you’ve got any questions about the game, you can ask them here.
The game is a bit old-school in that its combat, loot, and the general nature of the game are all very familiar-ish. Its combat is very similar to The Witcher 3 in that players will be able to wield swords, axes, flamethrowers, and other weaponry, and the game will have a lot of combat scenarios you can play with your friends.
One interesting part of the game is its ability to allow friends to be party-mates for the first time. This means that you can play with them and play with them and play with them and play with them. A lot of games have a “you can’t play with people you don’t know” rule. This game is different though as it has the option to invite new friends to play.
I have to say, this is a very interesting idea and definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for more ways to get together and play. The game is still being developed but if you’re ready for a new game and you’re a fan of the genre then this game is definitely worth checking out.
