PlayStation Store: Deathloop and Tales of Arise

PlayStation Store

The PlayStation Store has been the protagonist of a couple of really interesting updates, which have brought to the Sony digital platform titles of the caliber of Deathloop and Tales of Arise, produced by Bethesda and Bandai Namco respectively, but not only.

They are in fact, the engaging adventure Life is Strange: True Colors and the new edition of the basketball simulation par excellence, NBA 2K22, have also arrived, together with a welcome return, that of Sonic Colors: Ultimate, with a pleasant and colorful remaster.


Deathloop, Colt and Julianna in a combat sequence Deathloop (PS5, € 69.99) is the new title developed by Arkane Studios, the authors of Dishonored and Prey, made exclusively for PS5 consoles . This is an innovative and surprising experience in which we take on the role of Colt, a hitman who finds himself trapped on the mysterious island of Blackreef along with a skilled assassin in charge of killing him, Julianna.

The point is that the whole scenario is subject to a time loop that causes the same day to repeat indefinitely, and it seems that the only way to defuse this mechanism is to eliminate eight key targets before the sun sets and the cycle starts all over again . Will we be able to succeed in the enterprise?

Equipped with a rich arsenal, as well as with a set of special skills, we will have to make full use of all the resources at our disposal to move around the island, face any threats , escape Julianna's traps and in the meantime achieve our goals, freely choosing the approach we wish to use.

A formula that, as written in our Deathloop review, turns out to be guessed and convincing right from the start, thanks also to a story told in a masterly way, full of charismatic characters, and to a gameplay that offers continuously highly spectacular situations.
