If you’ve been impressed with Deathloop’s funky design since the game launched last year, the latest major update is well worth grabbing as it adds a photo mode to the game. Game Update 3 also introduces additional accessibility options and unique PS5 avatars, all for free.
For the new photo mode, you’ll be able to take photos while using a wide variety of filters, stickers, poses, and other customization options. This is only available in single player mode 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 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 – by following these steps described by developer Arkane:
- Options > Controls > “Controller” tab > Quick access to photo mode > Yes
- Once in game, double tap the “Create” button (button to the left of the touchpad) on your DualSense to open photo mode
For new accessibility features, Arkane says there are over 30 improvements and options added, ranging from improvements to menu navigation and interface options to a host of new gameplay options. also adds a dedicated 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 replays, and slowing down the game speed. There are also new HUD and subtitle options, such as customization size, opacity, and color of various text and graphical elements, and easier menu navigation to make accessing all of these features more accessible.
For those of you looking to pick up new PS5 avatars, there will be nine to choose from, including characters such as Colt and Julianna. To see how you can redeem this gift, you can head to the Deathloop site for instructions.
Deathloop’s combination of open-ended action and roguelite elements made it GameSpot’s Game of the Year, which is no small feat considering how many quality titles are available in 2021.
“Perhaps the most commendable part of Deathloop is how it takes so many seemingly disparate things and creates harmony between them,” Tamoor Hussain wrote in GameSpot’s Deathloop review. “Game systems that feel isolated become pieces of a bigger puzzle, and when you see how they seamlessly connect, you realize what a special achievement that is.”
