Developed by Resogun and Super Stardust studio Housemarque, the original sci-fi IP is a third-person roguelike shooter in which players take on the role of Selene, a deep space scout who crash lands on an unmapped world called Atropos.
The latest trailer shows off a handful of hostile creatures players will face off against on Atropos, a world which changes each time Selene dies.
They include Mycomorph, a large fungus-like enemy which launches spores that slow player movement, the lunging Titanpops, which can maim targets using a bladed limb, the gun wielding and rapid firing Automaton, and Gorgolith, an ambush predator that hides under the sand and lashes at targets with its tongue.
The trailer also provides a look at what appears to be a powerful boss enemy called Ixion, and a being that resembles Selene called an Infected Scout.
In January, Sony delayed the Returnal release date by a little over a month to April 30, 2021 “in order to give the team extra time to continue to polish the game to the level of quality players expect from Housemarque”.
