Now that the one year has expired, the Deathloop developers and Microsoft have announced that the recursive mystery game will be coming to the Xbox family of consoles, as well as the Xbox Game Pass service.
While Deathloop was previously playable on PC devices via the Steam platform, this new move will make Deathloop available on Xbox Game Pass on PC as well as Xbox, meaning users with an active subscription will be able to enjoy this action-packed title for no extra cost.
Deathloop is a game where the protagonist and antagonist are stuck in a time loop that always results in their deaths. Throughout the game, players must uncover the mystery behind the loop and escape it to advance the story.
