Deathloop got a new trailer at today’s Sony State of Play, complete with a brand new, classy-as-all-get-out James Bond-style theme song.
The stylish sequences shows off the back and forth between the main character, Colt — an assassin stuck in a time loop in which he must eliminate eight people to escape — and a character trying to protect the loop by eliminating Colt, Juliana. All of this is set to a gorgeous new trailer and theme song “Déjà Vu” clearly taking cues from Bond movies, both in musical style and in the art cutting between the gameplay sequences.
In a press release, Bethesda describes Déjà Vu as a “classic 1960’s spy film-inspired tune,” revealing that it was created by Sencit Music featuring musical artist FJØRA.
The new gameplay and story sequences we saw in today’s trailer were icing on the cake of a game for which we already have a confirmed release date for PS5 and PC — May 21, 2021.
Return to IGN tomorrow to see even more of Deathloop at IGN Fan Fest, with a panel at 9:15am PT bringing game director Dinga Bakaba and art director Sebastien Mitton together for an inside look at the first-person shooter.
