UPDATE: Deathloop is now available on Xbox Game Pass, with the former PS5 exclusive available to play via XGP on Xbox Series X, S, PC and via the Cloud.

Speaking about the release of Deathloop on Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft said: “The award-winning, mind-bending, time-warping sensation critics are calling a “masterpiece” is now available on Xbox Series X|S!

Explore stunning environments and meticulously designed levels in an immersive gameplay experience that lets you approach every situation any way you like. Hunt down eight targets all over the island to put an end to the cycle once and for all, and remember, if at first you don’t succeed… die, die again.
“Xbox players can now jump into the colorful world and time-warped action of Deathloop, running at 60 FPS on Xbox Series X|S. Deathloop is also available now with Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, and Cloud Gaming (Beta). Experience Arkane Lyon’s unique spin on the first-person shooter and lose yourself on Blackreef.”
ORIGINAL: Deathloop is out on Xbox this week, with the hit Bethesda FPS out on Xbox Game Pass on Tuesday September 20.
Deathloop is launching on Xbox Series X and S a year after it first launched as a timed PS5 exclusive, and will also be getting added to the PS Plus Premium and Extra library on the same day.
When Deathloop lands on Xbox Game Pass and PS Plus gamers will also be able to download the new free Goldenloop update.
This introduces crossplay for PvP across the PlayStation Network, Xbox, Steam, the Epic Games Store and the Microsoft Store.
If you’re an Xbox Game Pass subscriber looking forward to the release of Deathloop you can pre-load the game now.
Deathloop has a 39.1GB file size on Xbox Series X and S. Deathloop will also be available on XGP for PCs as well as via the cloud.
In terms of a release time for Deathloop on Xbox Game Pass, Express.co.uk has contacted Microsoft to confirm when it will launch on XGP.
Release times can vary when it comes to what time a game gets added to Game Pass. For instance, recent XGP hit Immortality was out at 5pm UK time on its release day.
So if you don’t see Deathloop immediately available on Game Pass at midnight in your area on Tuesday then it could be dropping later on.
Ahead of the release of Deathloop on PS Plus and Xbox Game Pass Bethesda in a post online detailed what fans can expect at launch, and from the new Goldenloop update.
Crossplay will be one of the big additions to Deathloop, but there will also be other new additions to the game.
Here’s what fans can expect from the new Deathloop update…
NEW ABILITY: FUGUE
Blackreef is an eternal party, and what’s an eternal party without a little intoxication? The new Fugue ability is a projectile that slows and confuses your target, briefly rendering them harmless (and tipsy).
NEW WEAPON: HALPS PROTOTYPE
The Visionary Wenjie has a new treat for you. The HALPS Prototype is a new energy-based rifle that fires a continuous laser-like beam, allowing you to rip through your enemies with precision.
NEW ENEMY: PAINT-BOMBER
If you thought the other Eternalists were off their rockers, just wait until you meet the Paint-Bomber. These new NPCs are taking their creative flair to a new level, strapping themselves with a bandolier of paint-filled explosives that they’re all too happy to ignite while they sprint your way.
NEW ABILITY UPGRADES: FOUR NEW UPGRADES FOR JULIANNA’S MASQUERADE ABILITY
– Ensemble: Target up to three NPCs with Masquerade
– Mend: Regenerate health while using Masquerade on an NPC
– Expose: When an NPC affected by Masquerade dies or spots Colt, Colt is automatically tagged
– Incognito: Damage taken while using Masquerade is converted to Energy
NEW 2-IN-1 TRINKETS
19 new trinkets have been added to DEATHLOOP, but these trinkets aren’t like the ones you’re used to. These 2-in-1 trinkets all combine the abilities of two existing trinkets.
New extended ending available for Deathloop as well as other secrets to discover.
