Returns on PS5 on March 19, 2021 – PlayStation.Blog

Hi everyone, we can look back on the many great projects that Housemarque has done on the PlayStation as it celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Over the last 14 years, titles such as Stardust, Dead Nation, and Alienation have made a mark on the arcade genre. One of our most memorable games was the award-winning PS4 launch title Resogun.

We are pleased to announce that you will be able to play Returnal, the debut PS5 game released on March 19, 2021. This is a major milestone for us as the most ambitious project ever. Use Returnal to create huge third-person action titles and explore storytelling of the story.

Returnal allows you to dive deep into the heart of Serene, an Astra space scout trapped in a hellish loop of endless resurrection while trapped in a hostile planet. A roguelike formula mixed with exploration platformer elements allows for a unique way to explore the planet and continue the battle she is fighting. Of course, the Housemarque arcade has a lot of prosperity, so be prepared to be bombarded by the barrage projectile volley along the way.

Not only do we look forward to returning to combat almost instantly due to the extremely fast loading times, but we also use the tactile feedback of the DualSense wireless controller to raise player awareness of the gameplay. You can feel the natural atmosphere of this alien planet as the controller mimics its environmental impact.

All weapons have an alternative firing mode, and each of these “Alt-Fire” modes is present on every weapon. Adaptive triggers allow players to move seamlessly between aiming down and activating Alt-Fire. Squeeze in half to point the iron sight down. Squeeze it completely to activate the rechargeable Alt-Fire attack. Switching modes with a single trigger quickly becomes a second property.

Players also need to be prepared to plague the PS5’s highly realistic 3D audio capabilities with compatible headphones. Returnal takes audio immersive to a new level. Soundscape adds a whole new layer to understand the actions around you. Even in the moment of silence, the soundscape created from the elements allows you to take in the atmosphere and feel like you’re actually alone on an alien planet.

So I’m looking forward to getting Returnal on March 19th and joining Selene on a brand new Housemarque adventure on the edge of the galaxy on PlayStation 5 alone!
