OverviewOverview

Returnal is a sci-fi adventure played in repeating rounds that slowly change the world and your character. You are a pilot stranded on a mysterious planet and must investigate and fight through the world to both survive and solve the repeating problem.

Memories of home slip away and the call to take arms grows stronger. With third-person shooting and investigating (both your memories and the alien world), the challenge becomes as much a psychological drama as shooter.

"Over and over, I've relived my first moments on this alien planet. The crash, the attack, my death." But each time it's slightly different, so although trapped there's a puzzle to solve about how to escape the cycle.

Coming to the PlayStation 5, it will make use of the console's DualSense controller and its adaptive trigger buttons to switch between firing modes. The new consoles immersive 3D audio also brings the alien world to life around the player, helping players navigate the intense positional combat.
