Returnal is available globally now for PlayStation 5. The third-person roguelike was released back in April of this year. Be sure to read our review of the game in case you’re still wondering whether you should pick up this brilliant title. We've included a short part from Kai Powell's review:

Save for an ending that crashes nearly as hard as Helios' entry onto Atropos, Returnal checks all of the marks for what a best-in-class roguelike should aim for: a gameplay loop that rewards the player for innovation and mastery, loot that can synergize to create some unstoppable character builds, and most importantly, weapons that simply feel right in the player's hands. Without a doubt, Returnal is one of the finest PlayStation 5 exclusives available in 2021 and those that are eager for the next great challenge can find plenty to look forward to with Selene's first steps onto the alien planet again and again.
