In case you’re unfamiliar, Returnal is an upcoming roguelike third-person shooter from developer Housemarque, the studio behind PS4 exclusives Alienation and Matterfall. Returnal was first announced back in June 2020 at Sony’s PlayStation 5 showcase, and it is the first major PS5 exclusive to release this year.
The game is is described as:
“After crash-landing on this shape-shifting world, Selene must search through the barren landscape of an ancient civilization for her escape. Isolated and alone, she finds herself fighting tooth and nail for survival. Again and again, she’s defeated – forced to restart her journey every time she dies.
Through relentless roguelike gameplay, you’ll discover that just as the planet changes with every cycle, so do the items at your disposal. Every loop offers new combinations, forcing you to push your boundaries and approach combat with a different strategy each time.”
Returnal will release for the PS5 on March 19, 2020.
