Deathloop is a first-person action, adventure and shooter game developed by Arkane Lyon and published by Bethesda Softworks.

The game serves as a slight departure from Arkane's previous releases, the Dishonored series and Prey, by featuring a time-loop mechanic, where players restart upon death, alongside a time-of-day that changes when moving between levels and forgoing any consequences for not playing stealthily. It also features a multiplayer "invasion" mode, where a player-controlled enemy must hunt down the main protagonist.[2]

After being delayed from an initial late 2020 release date due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and followed by subsequent further delays, Deathloop released on Bethesda.net and Steam on September 14, 2021.[3][4]

Reviews by critics praised most of the game's elements, with detractors suggesting that it borrowed too much from Dishonored and that some areas of the game felt lacking, such as periods of backtracking.[5][6] Other reviewers additionally pointed out that a key element in Arkane's previous games, a quick save button, is intentionally omitted from Deathloop.[7] After the game released, it was additionally noted by user reviews and media outlets that the game can suffer from performance and stuttering issues on some systems.[8]
