Returnal’s First 45 Minutes Revealed
A long look at the beginning of Housemarque’s next.
At the end of the month, we’ll get our next PS5 exclusive from Sony and Housemarque with Returnal. It’s one very unique looking new property and we’ve gotten a look at it from various angles such as the multiple enemies you’ll face off against, and the heavy narrative direction it’ll take, a first for Housemarque. Now, we get a long look at the game, specifically how it’ll begin.
Via GrizGaming, we get to see a playthrough of roughly the first 45 minutes of the game. Here you get the opening cinematic that sets up Selene’s time looping journey. We get our first looks at some of the weapon and enemy encounters. You also see parasites and alien glyphs near the end. Keep in mind that this just the opening moments, so a lot of the crazier stuff we’ve seen in previews isn’t here, but it’ll give you a good idea of how things start out.
Returnal will release on April 30th as a PS5 exclusive. You can check out the game’s full trophy list through here if you don’t mind some mild spoilers ahead of time.
