If you’ve been impressed with Deathloop’s funky design since the game launched last year, then the latest major update is worth grabbing as it adds a photo mode to the game. Game Update 3 also introduces additional accessibility options and unique PS5 avatars for free.
For the new photo mode, you can take a number of photos while using a wide variety of filters, stickers, poses and other customization options. This is only available in single player and can be accessed through the pause menu. You can also switch between Colt and Julianna in this mode, change your outfits and weapons (including the specific weapon variation and skin), and access over a dozen poses.
You can also create a shortcut on PS5 – PC users can access it by pressing “P” by default – using the following steps outlined by developer Arkane:
- Options > Controls > ‘Controller’ tab > Quick access photo mode > Yes
- Once in-game, double-tap the “Create” button (button to the left of the touchpad) on your DualSense to enter photo mode
For the new accessibility features, Arkane says there are more than 30 improvements and added options, ranging from improvements in menu navigation and interface options to a host of new gameplay options. The update also adds a special Accessibility category, which can be found in the options menu. Some of the options include increasing or decreasing the battle difficulty, adjusting the number of reps, and slowing down the game speed. There are also new HUD and subtitle options, such as adjusting the size, opacity, and color of various text and graphics elements, and easier menu navigation to make accessing all of these features more accessible.
For those of you looking to grab new PS5 avatars, there are nine to choose from, including characters like Colt and Julianna. To see how to redeem this freebie, head over to the Deathloop site for instructions.
Deathloop’s combination of open-ended action and roguelite elements made it GameSpot’s game of the year, no mean feat considering the number of quality titles available in 2021.
“Perhaps the most commendable part of Deathloop is how it takes so many seemingly disparate things and creates harmony between them,” wrote Tamoor Hussain in GameSpot’s Deathloop review. “Gameplay systems that feel isolated become pieces of a bigger puzzle, and when you see how they fit together seamlessly, you realize how special it really is.”
