Explore a planet that changes with every death, in Housemarque’s Returnal

Housemarque may be known for addictive arcade shooters like Resogun, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t make other things. In fact, based on the first trailer for their upcoming PS5 game, Returnal, they may have a future in third-person titles as well.

Returnal is set on a hostile planet that changes with every player death. As such, it’s a roguelike, and a third-person one at that. Through its confines, players will be able to switch between firing modes with a single press of the DualSense controller’s adaptive triggers, and can return to action right away after each death. Dying is actually part of the story here.
