As per the official synopsis, here is what you can expect from the Deathloop story:

“Deathloop transports you to the mysterious island of Blackreef, where an eternal struggle between two extraordinary assassins will determine the island’s future. As Colt, you must find a way to put an end to the time-loop trapping the island in an endless cycle, all while being hunted by the island’s inhabitants.”

You certainly can. GAME has the game listed for the PS5 and so has Amazon. The going rate for the game, in terms of price, appears to be £59.99 – that’s not too bad compared to some of other next-gen pricing out there.

Deathloop gameplay

A first-person shooter action-adventure game, Deathloop sees you take on the character of Colt, an assassin caught in a time loop who finds himself stuck in Blackreef island. Colt, who has to take out eight targets by the end of the day to break the loop, is the only person who knows what is happening and his skills will develop and become enhanced as you work your way through the loops.

There will be a combination of stealth, parkour, and attack skills as you play the game and the loop will require you to learn and study the moves of your targets if you want to be successful at taking them all out.

As for multiplayer, it is included and the developers have taken a novel way of featuring it. Players can take on the role of Julianna, an assassin out to take Colt down and they will hunt you while you are playing the game and hunting your own targets. Happily, if the idea of a random tracking you down does not appeal, the function can be switched off so you can play solo.
