Deathloop Voice Actor Receives PS5 From Bethesda

Bethesda sent a PlayStation 5 to Jason Kelley after the Deathloop voice actor told fans he didn’t have a copy of the game 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 game or proper console during a promotional clip for Deathloop’s release. Arkane Studios and Bethesda are owned by Microsoft; 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 failed to match demand since its launch, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, chip shortages and the omnipresent threat of online console scalpers. This has caused Sony’s new console to be incredibly difficult to acquire, as most online listings and markets sell out within minutes. The situation is further worsened by scalpers who buy up all of the 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 of 2023.

Prior to Deathloop’s release, Jason Kelley took to Twitter to release a short promo clip to his fans and raise excitement for the game’s launch. In said clip, he revealed he doesn’t own the game or a PlayStation 5. Pete Hines, the senior vice president of communications at Bethesda replied offering to “find” Kelley a PlayStation 5 so he could play the game and enjoy his amazing performance. Almost two weeks 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 going to be shipped to me, with the game as well. So, I’ll be playing the game…I’m super excited.”

Arkane Studio’s, Deathloop, came out 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 comparatively more immersive due to the console’s distinctive DualSense controller, allowing different experiences to be felt in the hands of players. This includes haptic feedback from Colt’s movements, unique feeling of weapons while firing or reloading, and knocks from controllers when Colt unjams a weapon.

Originally among the many unable to get their hands on a PlayStation 5, Jason Kelley is now one of the few lucky owners of Sony’s sparse console. It appears to be well 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 end of 2022, previously fretful PC players can jump back into the shooter after Deathloop’s recent patch to improve PC functionality.

Deathloop is now available on PlayStation 5 and PC.
