Deathloop Voice Actor Receives PS5 From Bethesda

Bethesda sent a PlayStation 5 to Jason Kelley after the Deathloop voice actor told fans he did not have a replica of the sport or a console.

Voice actor Jason Kelley – who plays Deathloop protagonist Colt Vahn – was gifted a PlayStation 5 from game company Bethesda after revealing he doesn’t own the sport or proper console during a promotional clip for Deathloop’s release. Microsoft owns Arkane Studios and Bethesda; however, Deathloop launched as a timed PlayStation 5 console exclusive, with an exclusivity period that ends on September 14, 2022.

The supply of the PlayStation 5 has did not match demand since its launch, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, chip shortages, and therefore the omnipresent threat of online console scalpers. This has caused Sony’s new console to be complicated to accumulate, as most online listings and markets sell out within minutes. Things are further worsened by scalpers who take overall units as soon as they become available and resell them for as high as $1,000 on secondhand websites. Almost a year after its launch, PS5 shortages will continue into the foreseeable future, potentially into May 2023.

Before Deathloop’s release, Jason Kelley took to Twitter to release a brief promo clip to his fans and lift excitement for the game’s launch. In said clip, he revealed he doesn’t own the sport or a PlayStation 5. Pete Hines, the senior vice chairman of communications at Bethesda, replied, offering to “find” Kelley a PlayStation 5 to play the sport and luxuriate in his fantastic performance. Almost a fortnight later, Jason Kelley confirmed that Bethesda kept their promise during an interview with JUMPCUT PLAY (via IGN), saying, “I was just notified by Bethesda that a PS5 was made available, it’s getting to be shipped to me, with the sport also . So, I’ll be playing the sport … I’m super excited.”

Arkane Studio’s, Deathloop came to call in September to universal acclaim, with critics and fans praising it for its innovative and experimental gameplay. Compared to PC, Deathloop’s PlayStation 5 version is relatively more immersive thanks to the console’s distinctive DualSense controller, allowing different experiences to be felt within players’ hands. This includes haptic feedback from Colt’s movements, a unique feeling of weapons while firing or reloading, and knocks from controllers when Colt unjams a weapon.

Originally among the various unable to urge their hands on a PlayStation 5, Jason Kelley is now one among the few lucky owners of Sony’s sparse console. It appears to be deserved, given he can finally experience his very own performance firsthand. While the title isn’t set to release for Xbox Series X/S till the top of 2022, previously fretful PC players can jump back to the shooter after Deathloop’s recent patch to enhance PC functionality.

Deathloop is now available on PlayStation 5 and PC.
