If you missed it, Deathloop took the main event match during Sony’s most recent State of Play presentation, giving gamers 9 minutes of footage to help them decide whether or not this timed PlayStation exclusive is for them or not.
Seeing as how the game releases in just a few short weeks, the ESRB has officially rated the game M FOR MATURE. SHOCKER, right? I mean, was there ever a doubt considering it has the word ‘death’ in the title?! It’s always fun reading their summary, which we included below.
This is a first-person shooter in which players follow the story of two assassins trapped in a mysterious time loop on a fictional island. Both characters must assassinate key figures in order to break or protect the loop. Players use machetes, pistols, and sniper rifles to kill human enemies by means of stealth, melee, and ranged combat. Fighting is often frenetic, with frequent gunfire, screams of pain, explosions, and large blood-splatter effects. Some weapons/attacks can decapitate or dismember enemies. Cutscenes depict further instances of intense violence: players’ character stabbed repeatedly in first-person; characters shot in the head at close range. During one sequence, a character is seen in a room while sexual moaning sounds are heard. Characters sometimes reference drugs (e.g., uppers, downers) and getting/being high on fictional drugs (e.g., “Looks like an over-engineered auto-erotic asphyxiator…Also, it’s going to smoke us up. Get us high.”). The words “f**k,” “c*nt,” and “sh*t” appear in the game.
Don’t forget, if you pre-order at Best Buy you’ll receive a free SteelBook case AND $10 in Best Buy rewards. Not too shabby, especially if you shop at BB on the regular.
Speaking of pre-order, have you watched the Deathloop pre-order trailer yet?
