Bethesda bought a PlayStation 5 for Jason Kelley from Deathloop after the voice actor told fans he didn’t have a copy of the game or a console to experience it.
Just as Deathloop was about to launch, a short promo clip on the game’s official Twitter account showed Jason Kelley, the voice actor for protagonist Colt, saying, “I can’t wait for you guys to get your hands on this video game. If anyone can get me a copy and a PlayStation 5, I’d appreciate it. ” This made it clear that Kelley did not have a copy of Deathloop or a PlayStation 5 to play it.
Hey @Jasonkelley_JK It can probably help you find a PS5 so you can play it. You deserve the opportunity to play as Colt and enjoy your own incredible performance. 🙂

While several fans congratulated Kelley on his performance in the game, Pete Hines, senior vice president of communications for the publisher of Deathloop Bethesda, appeared to offer a solution to the problems related to the voice actor’s console. “I can probably help you find a PS5 so you can play,” Hines said in response to the tweet. “You deserve the opportunity to play as Colt and enjoy your own incredible performance.”
An interview with JumpCut PLAY He has since revealed that Hines stayed true to his word. Kelley said: “I made an announcement, I was doing a bit and I said I didn’t have one and it turns out that Bethesda just notified me that there is a PS5 available and they will send it to me, with the game as well. So, I’ll play the game … I’m super excited. “
