Microsoft has announced that Deathloop, last year’s PlayStation 5 console exclusive, is finally coming to Xbox Series X and S. Furthermore, it will come with a collection of upgrades that include a newly extended ending.
Announced as part of the Xbox Tokyo Games Show stream, Deathloop will be available on Xbox Series X/S and via Game Pass on September 20, with pre-loading available now. While it is the same game released on PlayStation 5 last year, it comes complete with all the improvements made since it launched, including a photo mode and a suite of accessibility options.
The big news, though, is that a free ‘Golden Loop update’ has been added, which includes a new weapon, new enemy types, new upgrades, cross-platform matchmaking for PvP, and a newly extended ending. These are all cool additions, but it’s that ending that will be of interest to many: the abrupt conclusion to the story was one of the minor criticisms in our otherwise glowing review.
If you’ve yet to play Deathloop but are a PlayStation user, then you may be pleased to know Deathloop is coming to PS Plus this month, too. Bethesda has confirmed that the PS5 and PC versions of Deathloop will also recieve the Golden Loop updates.
