Returnal For PS5 Drops To Only $28 At Amazon


Housemarque’s excellent roguelike shooter Returnal is on sale for $29 at Amazon and Walmart. This price is the lowest we’ve seen, so it’s definitely worth grabbing if you’ve held off for a great deal.

Returnal was one of GameSpot’s favorite games of 2021. Our 9/10 Returnal review praised the game’s mysterious story and scary cutscenes, along with its innovative (at the time) use of DualSense haptics and 3D sound. “Do you need to be a little brave to play Returnal? Yeah. Do you need to be glutton for punishment? It helps. They say that anything worth doing should scare you at least a little bit. I’m not sure if that’s always true, but Returnal makes a strong case,” critic Mike Epstein wrote.

In 2022, Housemarque released a major update dubbed Ascension. It added co-op and a new Sisyphean endless mode to the roguelike third-person shooter. It also added a solo-only mode called Tower of Sisyphus, along with a series of bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements.

Following Returnal’s release, Sony acquired developer Housemarque. The Finnish studio is now making a new IP that has yet to be announced.
