Returnal, a new PS5 exclusive from Housemarque, will debut in 2021 and we couldn't be more excited!

Revolving around a protagonist stuck in a loop that keeps her reliving her experiences, it looks to offer roguelike elements wrapped up in a glistening AAA outer shell.

Considering this is the studio that bought us modern arcade classics like Super Stardust, it's perhaps not surprising to see them offer finely-tuned shooter gameplay.

Here's all we know about Returnal so far.
