As we all know, Deathloop will be released later in May. This is a PlayStation 5 console exclusive title developed by Arkane Lyon and also supports some exclusive features of the indicated next-gen console.
In the past few hours, however, it has been confirmed by the developers that the game will be able to run in 4K and at 60 FPS and an official list of the PlayStation Store now reveals that it will also support the incredible shadows possible thanks to Ray Tracing.
While there is no support from the technology in question regarding lighting within Deathloop, shadow quality should still benefit from ambient occlusion. You can read the store listing for the title below:
“The PS5 console brings Arkane’s unique artistic vision to life like never before, allowing players to explore the visually stunning 1960s-inspired world of DEATHLOOP in beautiful 4k at 60fps, with HDR, Ray-traced shadows and ambient occlusion.”
Other supported features also include fast loading, haptic feedback, and adaptive triggers. While there are some PS5-exclusive features, Deathloop has also been confirmed for release on PC.
All these steps that look to the future will be possible thanks to various factors, such as the power of the very high SSD that PS5 offers and the new functions that the Dualsense is able to make available to the game developers.
Deathloop will be released on May 21, 2021; however, the game will require the PlayStation Plus for an online multiplayer that supports up to 2 players online.
