Sounds like a good ol' time.

Returnal will be Sony’s next fully new generational title that was once going to grace us in March, but was delayed until the end of April. Regardless of when it hits, it looks to utilize the full scale of the PS5 hardware and give an intense time. Now the game’s ESRB rating gives us a taste of the intensity to come.

The rating for the game is M for Mature, as you’d expect. In it there is descriptions for “futuristic” pistols, machine guns and rocket launchers. It also indicates that combat will be “frenetic” and that there will be lots of explosions and blood as well as cries of pain, presumably from the main protagonist as they die, though maybe your alien foes as well. The developer has said they want the game to be haunting, after all. Also someone will say bastard, I guess.

“This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of an astronaut reliving the same day after crash landing on an alien planet. As players traverse the alien landscape, they battle native creatures and mechanized sentries. Players use futuristic pistols, machine guns, and rocket launchers against enemies. Combat is frenetic, with realistic gunfire, explosions, and cries of pain. Some alien creatures emit splashes of blood when shot and killed. In one sequence, blood stains appear on an altar that players interact with. The word “bastard” appears in the game.”

Returnal will release as a PlayStation 5 exclusive on April 30th.
