Developer Arkane has revealed more about Deathloop’s multiplayer mode in an extensive presentation. The single player game allows players to invade other players as antagonist Julianna Blake. They then have to take out the main character Colt.
In ‘protect the loop’ mode, you play as Julianna Blake. Before diving into the game, players can customize Julianna’s appearance and then choose whether to invade a friend’s game or a random player’s game. Once in the game, they have to take out Colt, the main character from the single player.
Julianna has much of the same powers and weapons at her disposal as Colt. Although he also has the power ‘reprise’ with which he can return from the dead once. Julianna cannot do this and therefore the player whose game you invade always has an advantage. By the way, Julianna can also be computer controlled in the game if you come across her.
A similar multiplayer mode was previously introduced in Watchdogs 2, where players could invade each other’s game. The invaders had to hack into the other player and steal data. When your game was invaded by another player, the attacker had to be found and eliminated.
Deathloop has already been postponed twice by publisher Bethesda. The game is now set to release on September 14, 2021. The game will first be released exclusively for PlayStation 5 and PC and has not yet been announced for other consoles.
