Returnal, the upcoming sci-fi action/psychological horror title from developer Housemarque, is hot on its way this April. In anticipation of the game's release next month, PlayStation released a new story trailer for the game, exploring our protagonist, Selene, as she becomes trapped on a hostile alien planet and caught in a mysterious time loop that slowly begins to unravel her past. While many plot details about the story is still kept intentionally vague, we at least have a better understanding of what we'll be up against - both externally and internally - in this upcoming shooter.

Returnal comes to us from developer Housemarque, who have a history with creating games like Matterfall, Resogun, and Nex Machina, among others. Their trademark gameplay style is at the forefront of Returnal, though they're taking a decidedly deeper approach to their storytelling this time around. Judging by the story trailer, we'll be up against not only the hostile inhabitants of this alien planet, but also Selene's own history as she comes to terms with some tragic unfolding events in her life. There's a lot of layers to peel back, and we can't wait to experience this for ourselves next month. Check out the trailer below:
