Returnal is the latest offering from Housemarque, who is responsible for past hit games like Resogun and Nex Machina. In it, Players take the role of Selene, a space pilot who finds herself stranded on an alien planet and stuck in a time loop.
The only way for her to escape is to battle her way through waves of hostile aliens, explore the unknown world she’s stuck on and face the demons of her past that the time loop digs up.
Should she succumb to any of these obstacles, she’ll find herself sent back to the start of her time loop, left with only the knowledge of what she experienced to help her do better next time.
The game is also one of the first PlayStation 5 exclusives to be released, preceded only by the console’s launch title Demon’s Souls.
Returnal is currently slated for release on Apr. 30 on PlayStation 5. For more on the game, check out a recent trailer focused on its story and gameplay.
