Returnal is an upcoming science fiction psychological horror video game developed by Housemarque and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment that is set to be released for the PlayStation 5 on March 19, 2021. The release is now set for April 30, 2021.
In Returnal, the players take on the role of Selene, a Deep-Space-Astro-Scout, who crashes with her spaceship on a planet called Atropos. On Atropos, Celine must face the horrors of a time loop that re-awakes her in the same place every time she dies. Every time this happens, the world changes around her and new obstacles and challenges appear.
The gameplay consists of many fast-paced maneuvering events, dash jumps, dodging and main focus lies on running and gunning. But apart from the action, Returnal also has storytelling elements which let the players find out more about Celine, the world around her and what is going on on Atropos.
Returnal is starring Gwendoline Christie as Selene.
