If there is one thing that annoyed me with Dishonored, it would be the fact that most of your super-exciting abilities were geared towards combat - something the actual storyline heavily discouraged. As such, I am quite pleased to say that Bethesda has now announced Deathloop - a Dishonored inspired shooter where you're essentially stuck in a time loop and have to escape through the use of awesome-looking powers and good ol' fashioned guns!

Rather than babble on, allow me to share with you the recently posted trailer. It'll clue you in pretty quickly on just what Deathloop has to offer, as well as how close it truly is to Dishonored in terms of gameplay. Have a gander:

Given that Deathloop really does look like a hybrid between Dishonored's gameplay and Prey: Mooncrash's premise, I must admit I have high hopes for it. The groundwork is already set, the premise is good and the visual style is compelling, so as long as Arcane and Bethesda don't spectacularly mess it up, Deathloop should be a good bit of fun!

As for whether I'll end up eating my words, I suppose we'll find out soon enough as Deathloop will be coming to PC and PlayStation 5 during the 2020 holiday season. The Xbox version is also in the works, though it will be arriving at a later date.

You can learn more about Deathloop, as well as keep an eye on it moving forward, over at the official website.
