If you aren’t taking notice to Deathloop just yet, then this new trailer may finally convince you to give it more than just a passing glance.
Shown off during Sony’s State of Play presentation, a new Deathloop trailer was shown that, while there wasn’t really anything “new” that we don’t know of already, was an awesome and stylish trailer that we’ve come to expect from Arkane. If there was ever a trailer that sold you a game upon watching it, this could be the one.
“Along with the different visual influences in each district, we wanted to ensure players would hear different things between the different regions of the island. The scores of each district are changed by the architecture and vibe of that particular location, as well as the Visionaries that call those areas home. Where Aleksis’ Updaam is all psyche-rock and vintage sci-fi tones, an area like Frank Spicer’s home of Fristad Rock will be more melancholic guitars swaying to the rhythm of the waves,” says Audio Director Michel Tremouiller, as he describes the music of Deathloop to be “psyche-rock music tinged with vintage sci-fi, jazz, and various exotic and traditional sounds,”
Deathloop is scheduled to release on May 21, 2021 for the PlayStation 5 and PC.
