Arkane Studios has revealed the weapon classes that players can find and use in Deathloop.

The weapon classes consist of machetes, handguns and SMGs (which can be held in both hands at the same time), machine guns, rifles, shotguns, a silent nail gun, a ‘Sapper Charge’ (a type of grenade), an automatic turret and the Hackamajig, a tool with which closed doors can be unlocked and turrets can be hacked.

Players can also use certain moves called ‘Slabs’. For example, the Reprise-Slab ensures that main character Colt can rewind time when he dies and Aether makes him temporarily invisible.

In Deathloop players go through a ‘loop’ over and over again, but it is possible to take certain weapons and slabs with them in subsequent ‘runs’. Players can achieve this with a mysterious substance called Residuum.

Deathloop is being developed by Arkane Studios, the developer of games such as Dishonored and Prey. The studio is part of Bethesda and thus ZeniMax, which has been acquired by Microsoft. However, the game will be exclusive on PlayStation 5 on consoles for a year, as that deal was already struck before the takeover. The game is coming to PS5 and Steam on September 14.
