Housemarque's moody PS5-exclusive sci-fi shooter Returnal gets March release date
Developer Housemarque is trying something a bit different with its new PS5-exclusive shooter Returnal; while it's earlier output favoured small but pristinely formed arcade experiences - think Resogun and Nex Machina - this time, the developer is going in a decidedly more blockbuster direction, and the result of its toils, we now know, will launch on 19th March next year. Returnal, which was initially unveiled back in June, blends third-person action and platform elements with a great big dollop of moody narrative to create a game Housemarque calls its "most ambitious project to date".

Housemarque reveals PS5 science-fiction mind-bender Returnal
Former arcade specialist Housemarque, developer of Resogun (and loads of other bangers), has announced a super-interesting new PlayStation 5 game called Returnal. It's a sci-fi game about a lone female space explorer who crashes on a planet and keeps living the same life period of time over and over again, a bit like that Tom Cruise film Edge of Tomorrow, which isn't that bad actually. But there's a weird edge to it.
