In March Returnal Will Have You Returning to the Start of an Alien Time Loop
It’s always unfortunate when you get stuck in an alien time loop, especially when everything in it wants to kill you. The newest trailer for Returnal shows just how you’ll be fighting back against said time loop, and when you can start.
The trailer certainly is exciting, with Returnal having quite a bit of fast-paced third-person shooting gameplay. You play as a woman trapped in a time loop, and every time she dies she’s jolted back awake only to find herself once again at the start. Thankfully she can find alien technology and learn skills that help her each time, hopefully eventually leading to her escape from the loop. If nothing else she’ll be shooting plenty of monsters along the way.
Originally one of the games that was shown off during the PlayStation 5 reveal event, Returnal appears to have all the fast-paced combat expected of developer Housemarque. The developer is known mostly for their PlayStation 4 launch title Resogun, but also for games like Nex Machina and the Super Stardust series. If nothing else, it should be an exciting game.
Returnal will be available exclusively on the PlayStation 5 on March 19th, 2021.
