After spending more than a year on PS5 and Steam (plus several months on Epic Games Store), Deathloop is finally coming to Xbox Series X/S and the Windows Store. It will be available for Game Pass and also receive a hefty new update in Goldenloop. Check out the trailer below.
The update is currently available to pre-load, with patch notes now available. Cross-platform matchmaking will be added, allowing players to match across PlayStation, Xbox, and PC, or on the same platform. One can also matchmake based on all controller types or on the one they’re using. The Xbox and PC versions also support cross-save and cross-purchase, which is a nice bonus.
In terms of new content, there’s Fugue, a new ability which can intoxicate enemies. Subsequent upgrades allow for enraging foes, causing them to attack their allies and for Fugue to spread on kill. A new laser weapon, the HALPS Prototype, is also coming. Along with slicing through enemies, it can refract off turrets and security cameras.
Other new additions include 2-in-1 Trinkets that combine the abilities of two Trinkets, four new upgrades for Julianna’s Masquerade ability, a new enemy type, and more. Check out the full patch notes here.
DEATHLOOP’s Free Goldenloop 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). The Fugue ability also includes four discoverable upgrades:
- Coda: Extended duration
- Earworm: Cast a Fugue “mine” on a surface
- Discord: Target becomes hostile toward its allies
- Syncopation: On target’s death, Fugue affects nearby enemies
Just imagine the damage you could do with the combination of Discord and Syncopation. Now that’s Colt’s kind of party.
You’ll have to do a little digging to find out how you can nab the Fugue Slab. Maybe check out Karl’s Bay in the afternoon? You may find a new mystery to unravel.
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. Fire the beam at a turret or security camera to refract the beam and hit your foes with bank shots.
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. Don’t let them get too close or they’ll take you down in a blaze of glory with them and turn you into another paint smear on the island of Blackreef’s colorful streets.
New Ability Upgrades: Four New Upgrades for Julianna’s Masquerade Ability
Previously Julianna’s unique ability Masquerade was the only ability in the game without its own upgrades, but no longer. With the GOLDENLOOP Update, you’ll have four possible upgrade options:
- 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. Take the new ‘Wrecking Ball’ trinket, for example, which fuses the existing ‘Sprinter’ (move faster) and ‘Unstoppable Force’ (damage an enemy by sprinting into them) trinkets. Or ‘Rolling In It’, which is a blend of ‘Deep Pockets’ (carry more ammo) and ‘Stab N Grab’ (receive ammo from melee kills). Snag one of these dual-purpose trinkets to free up some space in your gear for new trinket possibilities.
And New Secrets…
… Including an extended ending for the game and other surprises. But what would be the fun in spoiling them for you? You’ll just have to play through DEATHLOOP to see what else the GOLDENLOOP Update has in store for you.
