Returnal Official Release Date Announced

Game company Sony Interactive Entertainment has recently announced the official release date of upcoming video game Returnal.

First seen on the official Twitter account of SIE, the game will officially launch on March 19. It will be coming exclusively to PlayStation 5.

The tweet also has a short clip showing cutscenes and a lot of gameplay of the game. It showcases how the protagonist uses her ability to come back from the dead after getting killed in battle to her advantage.

Here’s the game overview:

Break the cycle of chaos on an always-changing alien planet.

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-fuelled 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.
