    This has to be my game of show. This trailer was bomb and I'm buying it day 1 to support a studio that is criminally underrated. Dishonoured 2 and Prey were some of the best games of current gen. This time loop concept infused with the immersive sim style they have perfected is totally Arkane and I can't wait to play it.

    If I have to speculate, I think that circle thing we see is what keep the loop going and they're both trying to stop each other from reaching it.
    People seem to think the two assassins are married a la Mr and Mrs Smith but I don't get that impression at all. The woman looks too young to be his wife and is clearly the villain wanting to keep the death loop cycle so she can do whatever crime she wants without the consequences of death. I think the guy is the noble type that wants to end the corruption of this city.

    I believe in true Arkane studio style they're going to make us choose who to play as, and that both characters will have different skill sets like Dishonoured 2. Can't wait to platinum this!

    Seems to me like they're either setting it up for 2 playthroughs as the 'good' and 'bad' character, or something akin to NieR: Automata where you need multiple playthroughs as different characters to get the full story. I am intrigued by it, but want to see more before getting too excited. I love seeing new IP's, there are not enough of them, but understandable due to the associated risk.

    That trailer is just pre-rendered cutscene, no gameplay, why would anyone be talking pre-order at this stage? Not aimed at you personally OP, we see this year after year especially after E3 and it's a pet peeve, we need to stop perpetuating and feeding marketing vapour. I do like that studio also btw and will likely follow this but right now there's nothing here.

    Prey was for me a bait and switch kind of deal, although I enjoyed it a lot I was sold a shooter and I got a stealth survival horror.

    Never got the fawning over Arkane to be honest, I found both Dishonoured games and Prey to be utterly forgettable games. This does look interesting though.

    I'd be the opposite. I've rarely been more immersed in games than when I was playing Dishonored. The level design and overall lore etc was top notch in my opinion. Prey was a different kettle of fish altogether but I still enjoyed it enough to get the platinum trophy!
    Deathloop looks like an interesting concept and I can't wait to see how it turns out.

    You got the platinum for Prey? Impressive. You must have played it about 2 or 3 times? I still need to NG+ it before getting 100%.

    Think it was three times alright, the no powers run was the toughest.

    Very excited for this. The style is cool, and Arkane? <3

    This game, right into my veins.

    Actually really like the look of this


  • Registered Users Posts: 182 ✭✭Arcadeheroes


    Arkane Studios is probably the most underappreciated studio out there . Deathloop looks absolutely incredible . I will be there day 1

    Gameplay looks awesome.


    But terrible graphics, its 2020.

    I like the look of it, but the worrying this is the combat is the weakest part of all of Arkanes games, its hard to quantify, but there's no 'meat' to it, the feel of their combat is too much like a deus ex or system shock.

    Video from a couple of weeks ago. Just snippets of interviews with the devs, but there are a couple of interesting tidbits.

    New trailer out; it's looking pretty slick, complete with very Bond'esque theme(?) tune:

    Very. Though every time someone mentions that game, I shed a small tear we'll never see a remaster / re-release :(

    Blame Warner Brothers who are doing a great job of challenging 2K as the biggest arseholes in the games industry.

    It's quite fascinating actually, one of the first cases of a company basically being offered money for as close to free as possible...and turning it down. :(
