Returnal has now officially gone gold!


Housemarque announced that their upcoming new IP, Returnal, is ready for launch!

On a recent Twitter post, Housemarque shared their thanks to PlayStation Studios and all the other teams involved in the development of the game.

What is Returnal?

Returnal is a third-person psychological horror game with roguelike elements. The story focuses on Selene’s journey 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 high stakes, bullet hell-fueled combat brought to life by stunning visual effects, players discover that just as the planet changes with every cycle, so do the items at their disposal. Every loop offers new combinations, forcing players to push their boundaries and approach combat with a different strategy each time.

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.

Are there gameplay videos?

Definitely! Last month’s State of Play, Sony’s own “Nintendo Direct”, showcased Returnal’s gameplay. Watch the official video here:

When will Returnal release? How much would the game cost?

Returnal is going to launch on April 30 exclusively on PlayStation 5 (PS5) for USD $69.99.
