Deathloop reviews were overwhelmingly positive at the time of its release and the game has taken home numerous end-year awards, so being able to get it half-off is a steal, to say the least. However, the trailer associated with the discount announcement has an added detail that may be of particular interest to Xbox gamers, as it reiterates exactly when Deathloop‘s PlayStation 5 exclusivity ends.
Because it’s the end of the year, hundreds of titles are on sale across all platforms’ digital marketplaces. Deathloop by Arkane Studios, one of the most popular games of 2021, is one such game that fans can acquire for a low price right now, thanks to a new video made to promote its reduced price point. From now until January 5, 2022, PlayStation 5 owners may get a 50% discount on the critically acclaimed Deathloop by visiting the PlayStation Store.
Thanks to a deal between Bethesda and Sony prior to Microsoft’s acquisition of Bethesda, Deathloop is a timed-exclusive for PS5 on consoles. So even though it is technically an Xbox-owned game, it’s only available on PS5 until September 14, 2022, at which point it can finally make its way to other consoles, like the Xbox Series X. Specific plans for the Deathloop Xbox launch have not been revealed, but since it’s an Xbox-owned game, it’s virtually guaranteed to happen not long after the PS5 exclusivity window ends.
