Arkane has officially confirmed the May 21, 2021 release date for Deathloop, coming to PS5 and PC. Preorders for Deathloop standard edition or deluxe edition on the PS5 and PC are available now. The standard edition will sell for $59.99.
Arkane also revealed the pre-order bonuses for Deathloop including the “Storm Rider” Colt skin, the One Trinket in-game buff, and a Dishonored-inspired Unique Weapon exclusive to the PS5.
The Deluxe Edition, which costs $79.99 comes with all the pre-order bonuses along with the “Eat The Rich Tribunal” unique weapon, a .44 Karat Fourpounder Unique Weapon, Party Crasher Colt skin, Sharp Shooter Julianna skin, game soundtrack, two in-game buffs, and a Prey-inspired Unique weapon exclusive to the PS5.
Original Story: Deathloop will now arrive on May 21, 2021, according to the PS5’s Store.
Arkane’s time-looping FPS – which was delayed earlier this year – has now got a pre-order page on PS5 that lists its release as May 21. That’s in-line with its previous window of Q2 2021.
That release date is presumably for both its PS5 and PC versions, which were originally due to drop at the same time. The game is a timed console exclusive on PS5, which Xbox will honour even after agreeing to an acquisition of Arkane’s parent company.
Pre-orders are open for the game (with a discount on the PS5 store), with early purchase earning you:
- Unique weapon: Royal Protector Machete (PS5 exclusive)
- Character skin: “Storm Rider” Colt
- One Trinket (equippable buff)
A Deluxe Edition is also available, coming packaged with the game plus the following:
- Transtar Trencher Weapon
- Eat the Rich Tribunal Weapon
- .44 Karat Fourpounder Weapon
- “Party Crasher” Colt Skin
- “Sharp Shooter” Julianna Skin
- Two Trinkets (equippable buffs)
- Original Game Soundtrack Selections

Deathloop is a first person shooter set on an island upon which lead character Colt is trapped in a time loop, attempting to assassinate those responsible before looping back to the beginning. He’s plagued by another looping assassin, Julianna – who can be be played by other real players, who invade your game.
