During The Game Awards, Housemarque and Sony Interactive Entertainment announced that their upcoming third-person shooter game Returnal will launch on March 19th, 2021 for PlayStation 5. The official gameplay trailer is embedded above while a quick description of the game is included below.
In Returnal, you get to dive deep into the mind of Selene, an Astra space scout trapped in a hellish loop of endless resurrection while trapped on a hostile planet. The roguelike formula mixed with exploration platformer elements allows for a unique way to explore the planet and continue the battle she is fighting. Of course, there will be plenty of Housemarque arcade flourishes present, so prepare to be bombarded by volleys of bullet-hell projectiles along the way. Not only can you look forward to getting back into the battle almost instantly with super fast loading times, but we’re using the haptic feedback of the DualSense wireless controller to give players extra awareness of gameplay. You’ll be able to feel the natural ambiance of this alien planet as the controller mimics its environmental effects.
Returnal is one of many upcoming PS5 exclusive titles scheduled to release in 2021 including Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Gran Turismo 7, and God of War: Ragnarok.
