Sony has been doling out the exclusives for the nex-gen Playstation 5 console, and one standout is Returnal, a shooter that will have you caught in loop of dying and reliving your most horrible moments on a alien planet death trap.
The only way to beat it is to break the cycle, but the ever-changing landscape will keep you on your toes. Hence, the concept of learning from your mistakes does not apply as much as being adaptive.
In any case, you’ll be in the thick of it. Respawn, Rearm, Revenge, Repeat.
Returnal description reads:
Returnal combines action with roguelike gameplay into a third-person shooter where players fight to survive a hostile planet that changes with every death. Players can switch instinctively between firing modes by using a single adaptive trigger and can get right back into the action after dying. PS5’s immersive 3D audio brings the alien world to life around the player, helping players navigate the intense positional combat. Coming to PlayStation 5.
