Arkane's Deathloop is a stylish and slick shooter with a time-loop twist


Arkane Studios' new first-person shooter was unveiled last year with a stylish cinematic trailer, but during Sony's press conference today we finally got a real look at the game. Guess what? It's even more stylin'. The idea is that you are an assassin stuck in a time loop who has to kill eight targets to escape, but there's another assassin working against you. Each time you die, the loop resets.

Deathloop clearly takes inspiration from Dishonored, only with a nifty '70s veneer. You'll still teleport around, using wild super powers to throw enemies around or set up slick kills.

We'll update this article if we learn more.
