In July, Bethesda released a nine-minute gameplay video showing one of a Deathloop player's missions, to hunt down and kill Aleksis "The Wolf" Dorsey. Dana Nightingale delved into the multiplayer component of the game, a killer-v-killer competition between Colt and Juliana that we haven’t considered yet.
The story of a Deathloop player follows Colt Vahn, who tries to escape for a while on Blackreef Island, and Juliana Blake, a murderer who seems to really enjoy stopping him. But it also supports multiplayer to invasion, as players can enter games and take over from Juliana to cause pain. Colt and Juliana are comparatively capable, but they approach their problems very differently: Colt's "Reprise" ability allows him to die twice before the game is over, which means he can risk more than Juliana, who will have better results relying on subterfuges and alert situation.
“[Playing like Juliana] is really something that rewards your knowledge of the map,” Bakaba said. "Knowing that an NPC is supposed to patrol the street and not patrol, so Colt probably eliminated them. Sniper humor, it's really worth it. When you're looking like Juliana, you're really looking for big game hunting."
"The ultimate test of the game is to play against someone who is as strong as you and try to beat them or beat them, depending on your style of play."
Bakaba also pointed out that Deathloop multiplayer is completely optional and that you can turn off invasion functionality if you prefer to keep things completely alone. “We’re not preventing any progression for the campaign behind playing like Juliana,” he said. "It's really fun, it creates interesting, interesting and memorable stories with other players and it looks good while it does."
The main focus of the video is on multiplayer action, but Nightingale also played the "killer puzzle" campaign for a single player, essentially the journey from waking up on the beach with no idea what goes into removing all eight enemies from the game in a single day, and how players can tackle the process of assembling all the pieces.
"Once you open the game, choose the order you want to tackle everything," Nightingale said. "You even choose if you want to tackle something. The campaign will start with a couple of clues, and as you explore them, you'll find more clues, but you could actually ignore those clues and just attack them. Yours, e.g. , I actually want to go to this location even though I don't know anything about it ".
Bethesda promised a closer look at Colt and Juliana during tomorrow’s Deathloop panel, which will feature voice actors Jason Kelley and Ozioma Akagha, which will begin at 11:15 a.m. PT / 2:15 p.m. ET, on Twitch.
