At a glance, Deathloop, the newest game from Dishonored and Prey developer Arkane, might seem like its past work on Dishonored and Prey. You get an array of varied weapons, a handful of creative powers, and the ability to use them in experimentative and inventive ways to progress. And that's true, but Deathloop also introduces new wrinkles to familiar roguelite and first-person shooter elements that might initially be challenging to wrap your head around. Fret not, though, as we've collected some of the lessons we wish we knew before diving into the Groundhog Days of Blackreef.

Deathloop is available now for PlayStation 5 and PC. GameSpot awarded it a 10/10, with reviewer Tamoor Hussain writing that "it delivers bombastic thrills and wince-inducing kills with intelligence and elegance in equal measure."
