Arkane Reveals New Deathloop Images And A Note From The Art Director

Looks great, cannot wait to play.


Creating an immersive in-game world is extremely challenging and motivating. For DEATHLOOP, we drew inspiration from books, movies, music, and real-world places to create Blackreef Island.

Key inspiration came from the Faroe Islands, which have a very wild and mysterious atmosphere (just Google it, you’ll understand) and The Thing (Carpenter, 1982), as we love the cold, isolated and intimate atmosphere of this masterpiece.

In Blackreef you will also find a mix of warm 60s vibes, technology, madness, possibilities, and fun. We can’t wait to show you!

Thank you so much for your support – We know how much the community enjoys the art featured in our games, and our dedicated art team is happy to continue the tradition.

Please enjoy an exclusive first look at some in-game paintings that will fill the world of DEATHLOOP (click to enlarge each image).
