Housemarque’s PlayStation 5 exclusive Returnal is coming out in March

The masters of arcade shooters Housemarque have announced the release date for their PlayStation 5 exclusive game Returnal. The game is out on 19th March 2021.


The game shifts down to a third person view, stepping away from pure arcade delights by wrapping a narrative around the action. Returnal delves into the mind of Selene, an Astra space scout who’s trapped in a Groundhog Day loop on an alien planet.

It’s a roguelite in structure, with exploration elements to go alongside the bullet hell of projectiles coming your way.

On PS5, it’ll obviously look pretty fab, and loading times will be nigh on invisible, but you’ll feel the difference on the DualSense with the Adaptive Triggers able to define a half squeeze to shift from aiming down sights and activating the alt-fire that each weapon has.

Returnal’s out for PS5 on 19th March 2021.
