By the time of the publication of the material, Deathloop had accumulated 76 ratings: for the version for Playstation 5 had 63 reviews, while PC 13 specialized portals passed the verdict to the project.

Deathloop’s rating is 88% (both PC and PS5). Before the original Dishonored (88-91%) the new game did not reach, Dishonored 2 (86−88%) did not concede, and Prey (79−84%) even overtook a little.

The journalists were delighted with the implementation of the time loop, complex levels, interesting characters, distinctive visual style, variable gameplay, intense multiplayer and a well-chosen soundtrack.

Among the few shortcomings of Deathloop, there are problems with artificial intelligence, a weak ending, surprisingly high linearity, uselessness of key fobs, fixed complexity and technical turmoil.

The new creation of Arkane Studios also made a strong impression on the author of 3DNews Mikhail Ponomarev: “An excellent work, organically combining crazy process, strong drama and unmatched visual style”

Deathloop will be released tomorrow, September 14th, on PC (Steam, Bethesda Launcher) and PS5. According to the plot, the mercenary Colt Van will have to get out of the time loop on the Black Reef Island, killing eight ideologists in one day.
