Housemarque's Returnal will come blasting into your brain March 19


Where no-one can hear you scream

Housemarque has announced a release date for its sci-fi action/horror title Returnal. As revealed during last night's Game Awards festivities, the bullet-hell roguelike will be letting rip on March 19, exclusively on PS5.

Returnal will tell the story of valiant space explorer and scientist Selene, who crash lands on a strange and nightmarish planet, inhabited by hazardous beings unlike any encountered by humans before. Slain again and again by her grotesque discoveries, Selene discovers that her life is locked in a time-loop, forcing her to relive her close encounters of the worst kind over and over - desperate to find a way to break the cycle and, hopefully, return home.

Housemarque has promised that Returnal will feature thrilling elements of exploration, alongside the Resogun developer's trademark intense, blood-pumping action. Returnal will also take full advantage of PlayStation 5 technology, implementing support for Haptic Feedback, Adaptive Triggers, Tempest Audio and fast SSD load times in an effort to make Selene's journey a thoroughly immersive experience.

Returnal is shaping up very well indeed. I'm definitely looking forward to this one.
