PLOT – Without spoilers
The assassin Colt is trapped in a 24-hour time loop on the island of Blackreef, which is not the paradise it appears to be in Deathloop’s narrative. Colt must destroy 8 targets (the Visionaries) by the end of the day to break the cycle, which will not be easy. Along the way, there will be several failures, with each kill resetting the cycle. As if defeating 8 monsters and their legions of minions wasn’t difficult enough, a rival assassin is attempting to prevent you from breaking the time loop. Colt must either study enemy tendencies and experiment with covert tactics, or go all-in and attack the Seers with guns blazing in order to get off the island.
