Housemarque’s unique roguelike launches on PS5
Housemarque has been present at the last few PlayStation hardware launches with intriguing game concepts, and their PlayStation 5 project is no different. Returnal, a roguelike action adventure shooter, mixes elements of several genres to create an experience that can only be described accurately as “VERY HARD.”
The game stars character Selene, who crashes on an alien planet. As she explores — and ultimately meets her doom — she’s reborn, retaining only some of her memories while the world shifts around her into something new and different. It’s heavy on the roguelike, but also throws in elements of the Soulslike genre with brutal enemies and obstacles.
Returnal is available as of today on PS5.
