Bethesda Brings Both ‘Deathloop’ and ‘Ghostwire: Tokyo’ To PlayStation 5 As Timed Console Exclusives
by Sage Ashford
After revealing both of these games a year ago, Bethesda’s major next-gen titles, Ghostwire: Tokyo and Deathloop were shown off at Sony’s “The Future of Gaming” press conference highlighting games for the upcoming PlayStation 5.
Deathloop comes from Arkane Lyon, and is scheduled to release in Holiday 2020. According to the game’s description, the island of Blackreef is a paradise for most of its inhabitants. But for Colt, “it’s an inescapable prison.” As the official description puts it, “thanks to a mysterious timeloop, he’s reliving the same day, over and over, trying to find a way to break the endless cycle he’s trapped in. As Colt, you’ll have to take out eight targets – including your arch-nemesis Julianna Blake – if you ever want to escape. But remember: It’s a timeloop, so if at first you don’t succeed … die, die again.”
Ghostwire: Tokyo meanwhile comes from Tango Gameworks, best known for their work on The Evil Within. More from Sony below:
From Shinji Mikami and the team at Tango Gameworks comes Ghostwire: Tokyo, a next-gen action-adventure game coming to consoles exclusively for PlayStation 5 in 2021. Tango Gameworks has taken full advantage of the power of the PS5’s next-gen hardware to create a stunning, immersive, and mysterious world to experience. Explore the streets of a city filled with spirits and mysterious otherworldly threats, with an arsenal of powerful abilities at your command.
Both of these titles are currently console exclusives to the PlayStation 5, meaning it will likely be a year or more after their launch before Xbox fans can get their hands on it.
