Update: As rumoured earlier in the week, Bethesda has now attached a 21st May release date to Deathloop on the PS5. One important detail, the base game will be $59.99/£59.99, so the publisher is not charging next-gen tax just yet.
Original Story: Deathloop, the ambitious time-based first-person adventure from Dishonored developer Arkane Studios, will seemingly launch on 21st May. That’s according to PlayStation Store listings discovered in New Zealand for both Standard and Digital Deluxe editions of the game. We’ll check in with Bethesda and try to get some kind of confirmation, although we’d anticipate an official announcement to be imminent.
Pre-orders come with three items: the Storm Rider Colt character skin, one Trinket, and the Royal Protector Machete, which is exclusive to the PlayStation 5 version of the game. Meanwhile, the Digital Deluxe Edition comes with three unique weapons, including the PS5 exclusive Transtar Trencher. You’ll also get: the Party Crasher Colt character skin, the Sharp Shooter Julianna character skin, two Trinkets, and an original game soundtrack.
This was obviously originally scheduled to release alongside the PS5, but was pushed back earlier in the year to allow for more development time. Enjoy it, because it may be the last Arkane Studios title you can play on the PS5.
