Returnal is a third-person shooter that kicks off when an astronaut named Selene crash lands on a mysterious planet that’s home to spooky, ferocious alien creatures. When these monstrosities inevitably kill her, she wakes up again right before crashing on the same planet – only now the surroundings have changed. It’s effectively a terrifying version of Groundhog Day, with procedurally generated environments, a full story, and new weapons and items available each run.
