Returnal is out on April 30 and since it is a PS5 exclusive, there is a lot of anticipation behind it. Here’s when the reviews will start dropping for the game.
Returnal is a brand new third-person shooter from Housemarque with a rogue-lite design. The game stars Selena, a woman who crash lands on an Alien planet and has to find a way to escape it while being stuck in a time loop that resurrects her from the beginning of her journey.
Returnal will support 4K at 60 FPS on the PS5. The game also features ray-tracing support and looks to be the first proper next-generation showcase for the PS5 since it launched back in November.
Ahead of the release of the game, we now have a review embargo date for Returnal which is set for April 29. The review embargo will be lifted exactly on 5 AM PT/8 AM ET. There are already previews and gameplay footage showing the introduction from the game. There will be a diverse range of biomes to explore in the game.
Returnal will support the PS5 features like Haptic Feedback, Fast Loading, Adaptive Triggers, and 3D Audio.
- Fast loading: Jump through portals between worlds with the PS5™ system’s ultra-high speed SSD. Get back into the action with near-instant load speeds that won’t leave you waiting to restart after you die.
- Adaptive triggers: Switch instinctively between firing modes by using a single adaptive trigger – go straight from aiming down sights to your gun’s alternative fire.
- Haptic feedback: Sense in-game actions big and small – while exploring fragments of Selene’s memories, or when firing visceral alien weapons.
- Tempest 3D AudioTech on compatible headphones: Hear the action from every direction in 3D Audio – bullets flying past you, enemies circling overhead, or unseen foes creeping up behind you.
The game is currently set to arrive on April 30, 2021, and will launch exclusively for the PS5 for $69.99.
