The good thing about Arkane Lyon and Bethesda Softwork’s 2021 first-person action shooter DEATHLOOP is that, while stuck in a time loop, you can take as many chances as you want discovering the best means of defeating an enemy. But… what if you come up with something so amazing that you want to capture it to share on social media? The third update to the game makes that easier than ever before, introducing a dedicated Photo Mode in its third update available to download now.
Below is what Arkane Lyon had to say about the mode:
Express yourself with a wide variety of filters, stickers, poses and other customization options in DEATHLOOP’s brand-new Photo Mode. Available only in single-player, Photo Mode is accessible through the Pause menu in any map or by activating the Photo Mode shortcut (set to “P” on PC keyboards by default). To enable the shortcut on PlayStation 5:
- Options > Controls > ‘Controller’ tab > Photo Mode Quick Access > Yes
- Once in-game, double tap the “Create” button (button to the left of the touch pad) on your DualSense to open Photo Mode
In addition to being able to select your filters and angles like a photography pro, you can swap between Colt and Julianna, change out your outfits and weapons (including the specific weapon variation and skin), and drop into over a dozen share-worthy poses.
A full list of features can be found in the game’s patch notes HERE.
But that is not all. A range of accessibility features, gameplay options to increase or decrease combat difficulty, reprise number, and game speed, HUD and UI customisation options and menu navigation optimisations are also available. Although there is no new actual main storyline content included in this latest update, the game is so tight-knit that more content isn’t necessary to get a satisfying experience from DEATHLOOP.
