7 Ludicrous NPC Deaths You Might Have Missed in Deathloop
What s it? about Deathloop! The time-strip shooter has been released in September for PS5 and PC. Since then, Bethesda and Arcane have apparently worked hard on the first major update, that is now at the start and brings many improvements.

When is the update? It s already there. Since yesterday, the 14th of October, the Game Update 1 for Deathloop is available for download.

How big is the update? 5 GB you need to download for the Game Update 1 from Deathloop, how Bethesda has announced on the official site.

That s in it: Most PS5 players inside from Deathloop is likely to be pleased that the behavior of the NPCs was adapted. In addition, there is now a HDR calibration screen and the audio output of the PS5 dualSense controller is now supported and RayTracing eats less performance.

HDR calibration: You can now set better in the options as HDR works on a corresponding device.
RayTracing: When RayTracing is activated, Deathloop is now better and more stable.
NPCs react more comprehensible to our actions and find their way better now.
DualSense Controller : The vibrations and the audio output have been adjusted and improved.
