Deathloop Won’t be Playable Offline – Rumour

Arkane Studios' upcoming title might require a mandatory internet connection.

Deathloop

Arkane Studios’ upcoming game Deathloop is largely going to be a single player-focused experience, and even though it does have an optional multiplayer component, it’s something that players can easily ignore entirely if they wish to. It’s surprising, then, that the game might not be playable without an internet connection.

As spotted over on the ResetEra forums, Deathloop’s page on the official PlayStation website mentions that the game requires online play. In contrast, if you were to look at something like, say, Demon’s Souls, which does have an important multiplayer component but one that is by no means necessary, the game’s page says that online play is “optional”. Makes you wonder just what part of Deathloop (that Bethesda obviously haven’t spoken about yet) will end up making an online connection a necessity.

It’s possible that this is a simple error on the PlayStation website and that the game doesn’t actually need to be online to be played, but neither Bethesda nor Arkane have said anything about this yet. We’ll keep you updated if they do though, so stay tuned.

Deathloop is out for the PS5 and PC on May 21, and will be a timed PlayStation console exclusive for one year afterward.
