PS5 exclusive Returnal gets new trailer showcasing action-packed combat

Returnal is shaping up to be a really cool game set to launch this year.

What you need to know

  • Returnal is an upcoming psychological horror game set on a hostile alien planet.
  • It is being developed by Housemarque and will be exclusive to PS5.
  • It is set to launch on March 19, 2021 at the moment.
  • A new trailer released showcases its combat aiming to "blend a unique mix of game styles."

The PS5 has a number of exclusives set to release on the console this year, including a new sci-fi psychological horror game from Housemarque. Returnal stars space pilot Selene, stranded on an alien planet and stuck in a time loop. In its latest trailer that the developer released, players got a better look at its combat and what weapons they'll have to defend themselves against the planet's threats.

Housemarque is touting that Returnal will feature "fast and frenetic combat and intense gunplay, and also some rich exploration." To aid in this, Selene will have multiple weapons at her disposal, some coming from the alien planet of Atropos. As you progress in the game, you can unlock new weapon traits and modifiers based on each gun type. Each of the game's 10 base weapons will feature an alt-firing mode, and there will be more than 90 weapon traits to unlock in total.

Though each time you do you'll be sent back to the beginning of the time loop before Selene crash lands on Atropos, you won't lose all of your gear. One of the devices that persists across sessions is the Cthonos, an alien device that generates a random item at the beginning of each cycle.

Players should be careful when using items they find while exploring, because some have both positive and negative effects. This risk and reward style of gameplay is at the core of Returnal.

Returnal is set to release on March 19, 2021 for PS5.

6 things Apple stole from Android at WWDC— and one that Google should steal

Every year, Apple and Google trade ideas for their newest versions of iOS and Android, respectively. But this year, during Apple's WWDC 2021, it seems like Apple purloined more than a few ideas that Google's integrated into Android over the last few years. Millions of iOS users won't get their hands on iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 until later this year, so until then, we don't know until then how the new features will fare in the real world. For now, here's a tongue-in-cheek look at six features Apple, um, borrowed from Android with its latest software releases.

How to watch England vs New Zealand: Live stream 2nd Test series cricket on

With the first Test ending in a draw, the series is on a knife edge at Edgbaston, as Joe Root's side look to put off the field controversies to one side and claim a much needed win against the Kiwis. Don't miss a single ball of the 2nd Test with our England vs New Zealand live stream guide below. The series has been somewhat overshadowed by the emergence of offensive historic tweets posted by Ollie Robinson who made his debut in the opening Test but has since been suspended. With the controversy still brewing amid interventions from politicians and accusations leveled at other members of the team, Root has a battle on his hands to keep his side focused on the game ahead.

The tourists have been delivered a huge blow coming intot his final match, with s

The Galaxy Watch 4 is coming soon — here's everything you need to know

Samsung's Galaxy-brain play: leaving Tizen behind for Wear OS. The Samsung Galaxy Watch 3, one of the best Android smartwatches , may have only just launched in November 2020, but the latest rumors out of South Korea suggest the company may already be developing its replacement — with some big changes and upgrades in the works meant to topple Apple from its smartwatch throne. There's no confirmation whether Samsung's 2021 smartwatch will be named the "Galaxy Watch 4" or adopt a new name entirely. However, we know that this new watch will run the new version of Wear OS, which would have a big impact on app support and Android phone connectivity. It could also feature a newer-faster chipset, which could put it leagues ahead of the best Wear OS watches . Details are fairly scarce so far, but we've scrounged up every known leak about specs, design leaks, and pricing, along with everything else we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. Samsung's bes

Every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart

Armor up Ratchet and Rivet before taking down their enemies. Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart features several armor sets that both Ratchet and Rivet can wear throughout the game, giving them damage buffs and other benefits. Each armor set is comprised of three pieces; the helmet, chest, and boots. Without all three pieces of a complete set, you won't get their collection bonus buffs. Thankfully, each map tells you exactly where to find the armor you need. It's then all about exploring the area and picking it up. You'll find most pieces within optional dimensional rifts that feature platforming puzzles of some kind, and there are eight total sets to be found. Here's every armor set in Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and the buffs that they offer: Galactic Ranger Description: The classic helmet of the Solana Galactic Rangers. The Galactic Rangers' chest armor is forged with justice and Raritarium. The Galactic Rangers' pants protect the galaxy... and your legs
