Earlier this week Bethesda confirmed that Deathloop (opens in new tab), Arkane Lyon's game of rival assassins trapped inside a looping stretch of time, would be released in May 2021 (opens in new tab). That was about the same time we got fresh details (opens in new tab) on the game and a new trailer. We knew it was coming to PC, but we didn't know if it would just come to Microsoft's Xbox service or if it would also come to Steam. 

A Steam store page for Deathloop (opens in new tab) has popped up, so there's your answer on whether it'll be on more than one storefront. It's set to retail at $60, with a character skin as a bonus, or at $80 for a Deluxe Edition with some (more) character skins and shiny gun skins and such. There's nothing else on the Store Page we haven't already seen, but there are some cool gifs. Here are the cool gifs:

In Deathloop, players will try to take out eight targets on an island in just 24 hours to break the ever-resetting single day. Trailers show it as a stylish, fast-paced FPS starring two superpowered killers. One of the assassins wants to escape, and the other has to stop that from ever happening. To win, players will have to puzzle out and understand the many events on the island. (opens in new tab) Deathloop also has optional multiplayer, where another player can drop in as the assassin Julianna to try to stop protagonist Colt.

Arkane Lyon is the development studio behind the much-loved Dishonored, a series of immersive sims (opens in new tab). Deathloop was originally slated for 2020, but was delayed due to COVID-19.
