Returnal has been a mystery to me since it was first announced, though it is a Playstation Exclusive, I have tried to keep this game in the dark to build my own excitement. The launch trailer is actually one of the first trailers I have watched from start to finish.
The game looks like a mix of Death Stranding and Dead Space, with a dash of Resogun. . .and how the hell couldn’t that make you excited!? With its Syfy elements, horrifying enemies, and explanation I can already see this is going to be one of the most interesting games of the year.
Though it will probably give me a lot of challenges with its “Dark Souls” style death system, I will be sharing my own reaction to the game and some gameplay soon to our Youtube, but until then check back here for some of the latest gaming news!
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.
