Deathloop Nominated For Six Golden Joysticks Awards – Including Game Of The Year

Deathloop had a successful launch back in September 2021.

Deathloop is up for a number of awards at this year's Golden Joysticks ceremony following its successful launch back in September.

The gaming community clocked to their respective retailers and online store to get their hands on Arkane Studios' latest creation, with Bethesda selling it as a timed exclusive for PlayStation 5 despite the exclusivity deal they signed recently with Microsoft.

The storyline captivated gamers across the globe in the build-up to its launch, with two assassins essentially locked in a time warp with varying objectives, not even death could help them escape, hence the name Deathloop.

Even the likes of IGN gave this game a 10/10 and described it as a "masterpiece", which is something that they do not do very often.

With this in mind, Arkane could be remunerated lucratively for all of their hard work at this year's Golden Joysticks Awards.

Bethesda revealed the news on their official Twitter account, with both Deathloop and Arkane Studios in line for six awards, including Ultimate Game of the Year and Studio of the Year.

Also, voice actors Jason Kelley and Ozioma Akagha, who are behind the characters Colt and Julianna, are up for the Best Performer awards with voting set to open on 5th November 2021.

Many will say that Arkane deserves recognition for their efforts, especially during what was a difficult time in the gaming industry with the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown, which put the game's launch date back 12 months. 

While others may not necessarily agree with this, Deathloop has ensured that its unique storyline and gameplay concept makes it stand apart from all other games in this sector.

Time will tell whether Deathloop and its creators will pick up any awards at the Golden Joysticks, or if they will leave empty-handed.
