Arkane's Deathloop is a stylish and slick shooter with a time-loop twist

Arkane Studios' new first-person shooter was unveiled last year with a stylish cinematic trailer, but during Sony's press conference today we finally got a real look at the game. Guess what? It's even more stylin'. The idea is that you are an assassin stuck in a time loop who has to kill eight targets to escape, but there's another assassin working against you. Each time you die, the loop resets.

Beyond that, it's an absolute blur of wild imagery—headless school girls, demon-masked base jumpers, digital constructs... and first-person blasty hands?

Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery was a weird-ass and seminal indie game that's almost a decade old. But all those years later, I can still remember it perfectly.

Today, Sony finally unveiled many of the games coming to the Playstation 5 when it launches later this year—but a few of them are probably coming to PC, too.

The trailer, which you can watch above, was brief and didn't show much in terms of actual gameplay, but the premise is intriguing.
