I have to say that the whole thing here is just a pretty little exercise in self-awareness. If you’re going to paint a home, start with some simple things: paint, trim, and trimming. It’s also worth taking a little physical action to get the most out of paint.
The last bit of information that you will take in the new trailer is that Signal is some sort of “key code” that can be passed along to the Visionaries to tell them when they’ve been killed. If you do manage to kill any Visionaries, the signal will end, and you are given a chance to restart your game. The idea is that you want to try to restart your game so that you can kill some more Visionaries.
The trailer also throws in a bunch of new information about the game’s story, or at least a new version of it. For example, the game is going to feature three different endings. The first is for the main character Colt Vahn, but the second is for the villain Arkane CEO Tanya. The third is for the three Visionaries that are currently locked in a prison on the island. The third one has a slightly different ending, but it also leaves you with an extra weapon.
The first game is very similar to the second, except that it has the same ending, and the same characters, weapons, and enemies. Like the first game, the new player will have to kill the Visionaries to unlock the main character, but after he’s revealed all of these enemies will become more visible.
There’s a lot to like about the new trailer. For starters, it sets up the story in a much clearer way. The first game was quite vague about the story. Now though it definitely gives the player plenty of choice, even if it doesn’t come with any major revelations. The new trailer opens up a lot of the game’s mystery and backstory.
At the time of writing this, you had less than five hours left before the trailer came out, so I was expecting a lot more. Then we finally got into the trailer so we could start the game. The trailer starts with Colt’s party-building, making the party seem as though it’s about to make its appearance.
This is a bit of an obvious one, but the game does give some hints about the story and the characters. The trailer explains that this is an amnesiac, Colt Vahn, who seems to wake up to find himself on a beach and a bunch of other people floating around. The trailer also shows that its the first day of Blackreef, and it seems like a bit of an ominous tone to the trailer as we know the island is going to be repeating every day.
I guess we’re supposed to believe that they are all going to die of amnesia and that Colt is just going to be there to hang out. The trailer also shows Colt getting shot at and the visionaries being murdered by some random person. So, this is the sort of thing we’ve been dealing with since the first Deathloop trailer.
The trailer makes it seem like the island is going to be repeating every day. However, the island has been repeating for years and there are more Visionaries then ever. So, this is just a warning to the island that its repeating daily so the island can get some rest.
The trailer shows a lot of guns. So, it’s not a new feature. It’s just kind of, “here’s a bunch of cool guns from the first Deathloop trailer and I want you to play with them.” But, it’s also very much an example of the Deathloop team’s ability to create a world that feels completely different from the one we’ve been playing in.
