Prepare to embark in a sci-fi action game that is both ambitious and literally out of this world, as Sony Interactive Entertainment and Housemarque have released a brand new trailer for Returnal — which is third-person shooter psychological horror game headed straight for the PS5 this coming March.
Check out the new combat trailer below and seen the protagonist Selene in action, as she wields anything from alien blades to parasites against enemies.
Courtesy of the PlayStation Blog, Housemarque has also detailed what players can do in the game — from the risk and reward gameplay to upgrading weapons and using the items Selene discovers wisely as she lives, dies, and repeats events via a time loop depending on her progress in the game.
With Returnal we’ve aimed to blend a unique mix of game styles. It combines our trademark explosive arcade action, responsive controls and bullet hell gameplay, and this time it’s all presented in third-person. There will be fast and frenetic combat and intense gunplay, and also some rich exploration and traversal as you explore the procedurally generated environments of Atropos. We’ve created Returnal to be a challenging and rewarding experience, with enough variety and depth to keep you always coming back for “one more go”.
If you’ve never seen the previous trailer for Returnal from the PS5 Showcase event, see it here.
Returnal comes exclusively to PS5 this March 19, 2021.
