New DEATHLOOP Gameplay Walkthrough Revealed

Today at Sony State of Play, Bethesda Softworks revealed a new PlayStation 5  (PS5) extended gameplay walkthrough for Arkane Lyon’s DEATHLOOP, the innovative first-person  shooter where players are trapped in a timeloop with their worst enemy. Our protagonist Colt is on the hunt for Aleksis “The Wolf” Dorsey, one of eight key targets to eliminate before the day once again resets.

In DEATHLOOP, there are many ways to reach and take down a target. This all-new look at the game gives players a glimpse at just one of the ways to do away with the self-absorbed Aleksis. And, just as Colt escapes mostly unscathed, his nemesis Julianna (controlled by either a player or the AI) gets the best of him, putting an end to his one-man party and restarting the timeloop.

DEATHLOOP is launching exclusively on console for the PS5  and for PC on September 14, 2021. Check out this article HERE for more info on the gameplay walkthrough you just watched.

Devolver Digital Launches Sci-Fi Colony Building Sim Ragnorium in Steam Early Access

Developer Vitali Kirpu (Pixel Piracy) and publisher Devolver Digital have released Ragnorium, a challenging planet recolonization simulator spanning eons of time, into Steam Early Access.

Ragnorium tasks players with leading a small group of cloned colonists on their pioneering journey into the harsh outer reaches of space, building a self-sustaining society while attempting to survive an oncoming Holy Crusade.

The Steam Early Access launch introduces players to the base game loop of creating cloned colonists, preparing the dropships with cargo, and building out a base-level colony with a wide variety of materials and equipment from the first era of technology. Over time, new eras of technology will be added bringing new materials and equipment into the fold.

Ragnorium had been quietly available in ‘Earliest Access’ on Steam and only accessible through a direct link and not searchable on Steam. This two month run in a private release window allowed a few thousand players to test and provide feedback for updates to visuals, sound design, UI, and overall presentation before today’s debut to the wider Steam audience.

The launch into Steam Early Access marks the beginning of a content roadmap that will include more colonist types, planet maps, items, resources, characters and boss encounters. Developer Vitali Kirpu’s iterative design process lets Ragnorium benefit from rapid feedback and guidance from the community about the overall direction of the game and its mechanics – something that helped produce significant changes in the private Earliest Access phase.

Discover more about Ragnorium at ragnorium.com and follow @ragnorium on Twitter for more insights into cloning, space colonization and our thoughts on utopian interstellar societies.
