Housemarque‘s PlayStation 5-exclusive title reveals a bit more of itself, as it creeps ever closer to its launch.
Thanks to PlayStation Access, we now have an eight-minute video of Returnal, featuring a lot of brand new footage. It reveals some details about the game’s combat mechanics, upgrade system, as well as that mysterious house you’ll be returning to throughout the story. There’s another thing we’d point out: there might be a possible link to Greek mythology. That is an interesting turn…
Here’s the game’s overview: „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.
Brought to life by stunning visual effects, the dark beauty of the decaying world around you is packed with explosive surprises. From high stakes, bullet hell-fueled combat, to visceral twists and turns through stark and contrasting environments. You’ll explore, discover and fight your way through an unforgiving journey, where mystery stalks your every move. Designed for extreme replayability, the procedural world of Returnal invites you to dust yourself off in the face of defeat and take on new, evolving challenges with every rebirth.”
After a delay (the game was first announced in December to drop on March 19), Returnal will launch on April 30, exclusively on PlayStation 5. The delay was announced in late January. The game has gone gold a month ago.
Returnal has finally gone GOLD!!!
A huge thanks to everyone on the team at Housemarque, PlayStation Studios, and all the other teams involved. We can’t wait to have this out soon and for every player out there to experience the planet of Atropos!#Returnal #PS5 #April30 pic.twitter.com/ymacgtGXbg
