A New Twist to Rogue Style Gaming: Returnal

Posted on April 30, 2021 at 10:43 am

If you have heard about this dark, rouge-like style game Returnal, you may be wondering what’s being said and if you should give it a go. Returnal is a third-person shooter game, from Sony for Playstation 5, based in a hostile alien planet where you have to fight to survive. In these long epic battles, you can switch instinctively between firing modes using a single adaptive trigger and can quickly get straight back into the fight upon death.

One of the most incredible aspects is the immersive 3D audio, that is best realised with headphones, that adds to the intense realism of the alien world around you. Each level brings a new unpredictable challenge, a fresh environment, seamless loading times and excellent storytelling.

If you have been debating on if Returnal is worth the hype, then you may now know if this action-thriller is your kind of game and something worth investing in.

Since the release of Call of Duty: Warzone, there has been a lot of talk and comparison between other Battle Royale games. It has been given many mixed reviews, with it being highly rated for the most part, but many feel it could be a bit better. Some of the best features of this game are the tight and responsive weapon play, an interesting and expansive map and tense Gulag encounters. The game also has a unique twist with the introduction of Contracts.

Many believe the COD franchise have up’ed the stakes in battle royale style play, against 150 other players and improved upon this it’s design, compared to Blackout. Some feel the game will be better at giving Fortnite a run for its money, but only time will tell.

Overall, the game seems to be quite popular with some still feeling it could use some improvement. It does offer new and creative gameplay but is seemingly a bit risk adverse.
