Returnal has entered the Gold phase and is practically ready to hit the shelves. Housemarque’s original third-person roguelike has already featured in several trailers over the past three months. Still, apparently, the team didn’t want to give up the showcase represented by the Future Games Show 2021.
” Returnal is an adrenaline-pumping sci-fi shooter with roguelike components and an important focus on narrative,” said Mikael Haveri, marketing director of Housemarque.
“The protagonist is Seline, an astronaut trapped in a loop on the alien planet Atropos, from he must escape. The gameplay is at the center of the experience; it’s fast, there are bullet-hell components, and being able to dodge enemy shots and understand when to attack is essential. The narrative is not secondary, and you will discover a lot of information about the world and the protagonist exploring the alien planet […] Returnal will arrive on PS5 on April 30th. We can’t wait to find out what your reaction will be!”.
Below you can take a look at the new trailer.
We have already talked about Returnal extensively in the past. Just a few days ago, the developers shared many details on the gameplay, talking about asynchronous multiplayer, narrative structure, and much more. The title can be pre-ordered right now on the PlayStation Store, in both standard (€ 79.99) and deluxe (€ 89.99, with different weapon and protagonist skins and a copy of the digital album).
